I started going out more walks, replaced my chocolate treats with fruit, drank more water, took up ballet fitness but I didn't see very many results. Not meaning I didn't have results, my brain just failed to let me see them. A few weeks ago, I decided to weigh myself for the first time in 8 months, two stone, gone. I was two stone lighter and I didn't see a change, I couldn't celebrate my huge achievement because I couldn't see the difference.
I began to drive myself crazy, asking everyone if they could see a difference and even when they said 'you look tiny' or 'you can really notice how much you've lost in these last few months', I just assumed they were humouring me. I still felt as big as I did 8 months prior.
Then about a week ago, Something surfaced on Tumblr and everyone was trying it. It was a Body Shape Calculator by the clothing site, Marisota. Having a spare few minutes, I put in my guess to my size and then put in my measurements(I thought I was at the time, I'll get to this a little later.) and I had a lovely surprise...
And do you want to top this? I measured myself last night, turns out my waist is smaller than I thought it was. By almost two inches! Last time I measured myself, I'd gotten it wrong. I hadn't lost an inch off my waist this year, it was almost 3 inches! This gives me a 10 inch difference between my waist and my butt and a 9 inch difference between my waist and my bust, I'm a 'perfect hour glass' and I love it.
Today I just feel so good about my body, I feel both skinny and curvy and I want to sing from the rooftops how much I love it! Now to reward myself with an Alpro Soya dessert!
