    There have been a couple of silly/strange moments so far on the journey - I'd be interested to hear yours:)

    I was in the shower this morning shaving my legs and was grumpy because my knees were all knobbly and difficult to do - and i suddenly realised that that's because they are not as round and plump as they have been for some time ;)

    Also last month i was annoyed because my new pretty t- shirt didn't fit.....it took me an hour to persuade myself it was a GOOD thing it was too big lol:D

    I finally had to clear out my wardrobe today. I have skirts and tops in there size 26 - 30 that I wore all the way down to a size 20. Today in town I found almost everything that fitted best was a 14 (cardigans only) or 16, with one or two 18s (if tight over the hips) It means I have barely anything to wear but I can't go on safety pinning my clothes forever.

    I think I was waiting to wake up slim before anything changed. I know lots of people rush out and buy new clothes for every stone lost... I lost 6 before I bought -anything- new. A seriously crazy head thing. I'm still very unhappy with my body and still see myself as being much heavier - so I've been wearing old clothes waiting for the day I felt thin. Maybe it's a safety thing, too. I failed at so many diets for so long, I wanted a safety net in case I regained.

    Well, I tossed that out today. I'd better improve at tightrope walking!

    Sorry, not a hugely amusing thing but occupying my thoughts for the last few days.

    I remember going into primark a few years ago and all I could buy to fit me was an umbrella.

    Oh and with regards to knobbly knees - I have to sleep with the duvet between my legs now because my knee bones press into each other when I sleep on my side! The one thing about losing weight, as someone who has been obese from about 14, that has been magical is watching bones appear.

    I mean I got these lumps on my wrists, and my collar bones appeared. Then I got two little bumps on my neck. Then the bumps -joined up- with my collar bones. Now there are sinews visible in my neck, which used to be a short pudgy lump but has grown to be really long. It's magical. The bones are the way I remind myself that there IS a difference.

    haha i've had the tshirt experience. I think it's because we're so used to 'doesn't fit' meaning too small that we get confused when it's too big. I've had clothes hanging up for years that i've worn for about a month and are now too big. I was all depressed after wearing one of them recently and said to my mum 'i'll never be able to wear this again, look at it :(' and she said '...because it's too big!'.

    The bones one is great isn't it? I have a collarbone! Who knew?!?!

    The most random one i've had was getting in the shower and seeing SEPERATE rolls of fat on my stomach instead of one massive one. Strangely that made my day...DIVIDE AND CONQUER!

    LOL! This thread made me laugh! Personally, along with the other things mentioned above, the scary thing for me was finding clothes from when I was 13/14 in the loft and trying them on and they fitted to a T! Hehe

    However I don't think me wearing a 10 year old t-shirt with a picture of a cartoon puppy running through flowers is what people expect to see in their local supermarket :D
