So back in March I was going out for a friend's birthday and I was literally having a mental breakdown!! Because I'd fallen off the Dukan wagon and gone back up to 11st... bad times.. So I had to pairs of shorts.. Exhibit A lets look at exhibit A .. I could just about pull these on! They were the sort of stage where you'd say to someone "just because they zip up doesn't mean they fit!" I could just about keep the zip up (but it wanted to ZING off!) and the outside and inside buttons wouldn't do up at the same time! They were also a bit tight on the legs! My stomach squidging out the top was the definition on MUFFIN TOP! Exhibit B Exhibit B! These wouldn't even go up my thighs, let alone do up!! I was seriously depressed. This morning I weighed in at 11st 1lb, probably bloating or something. I'm trying to not let it bother me, I can't have gone from 10'12 to 11'2 in one weekend!! So I tried on these shorts. They fit. They do up. They're comfortable. No sucking in, no breathing in. They just go on, they do up & it doesn't hurt! The second pair are a bit tight on my thighs, but I'm not suprised.. I was suprised that they fit though ! I just wanted to share this with people (& get it through to myself!!) to sort of say, the scale does not always matter, & I have proof, I am apparently 2-4lbs up this morning, weigh more than before and due my period!
