    Had to share this with you guys.

    Do you remember me saying I bought Hunter Welly boots? Prob not!! But as a recap, this summer all my friends had trendy hunter welly boots at the festivals we go to, I never because when/if I managed to squeeze them on my legs spilled over the sides. Anyway about a month or so ago I bought some and they did fit. I wasn't pouring over the side but they were snug. I was chatting to my friend about it saying that you always see the celebs with their boots on and there is a big gap and I doubt my legs would ever by that thin. Anyway today its yuck here so I put my hunter boots on and there is a gap between my calf and the boot!! I was jumping about like a kid at christmas. My OH didnt really understand but I was so pleased! Its not a big gap but its a gap and it means they dont rub!! yay so pleased!

    Sorry had to share this with you all!

    That's brilliant! It is these little things that make it so worthwhile - I had the same feeling of ecstacy of feeling the loosening of my rocket dogs when I zipped them up a couple of weeks ago - they are positively baggy now! YEY!!!

    Well done - keep it up!! I'm waiting for the gap at the top of my legs, then i'll be happy ;)

    I understand completely

    I remember your post well and I entirely understand where you are coming from.
    Only people who have been overweight understand about boots.
    Congratulations Em xxx

    Yay!!! Those little discoveries are so exciting, and my OH too looked perplexed at much of my excitement along the way!! lol

    Anna - the gap in the thighs is an amazing discovery. I first noticed one day when I was walking through the office, and I suddenly realised I did not, could not, hear the 'swish swish swish' sound of my thighs rubbing together!!! And I realised - they weren't touching!!! It was a GREAT moment!!! :D I even TRIED to make them rub, and I couldn't - my knees knocked each other first so it wasn;t even possible!! hehe!

    Ahhh, the little things in life, ay? (But for us, they are big BIG things!! and truly said - only one who has been fat can understand these small joys!! :D)
