9.5kg - That is how much weight I've lost and that is how heavy the dumbbell I used for bent over rows was this week. It's really weird having the weight I've lost there too hold, and scary how heavy it is and how hard it was to lift - can't believe I'd been carry all that extra far around with me, and I still am carrying another load. I think everytime I need a wee motivational kick I'm going to have to pick up that dumbbell and remind myself of the extra strain I've been putting on my body!
Jeans - I finally gave in yesterday and accepted that my favourite jeans just do not fit anymore! They hang so low they are almost indecent and have got so loose that a belt looks ridiculous. So I decided once again I would torture and depress myself by going jeans shopping. Big Mistake. I despise jeans shopping. I just don't know how it works. They tell me the sizes are waist sizes, my waist currently measure 27.1", now I knew not to bother going near anything as small as a 27 or 28 so started off trying the 30, couldn't get them on. Not even close! So I tried a few different brands and found nothing that fits. Great. As you can imagine I'm feeling really good about myself after that. Never in my life have I had a jeans shopping experience that wasn't somewhat traumatic! I don't understand why it's so hard. Meh.
