However to return to the pants' saga. I have documented here my big moment when I purchased size 15 pants, a few months ago. Now those pants are loose. I can put my fist into the waist band.
I have just made a bold step and bought some pants in size 14. I always used to be size 14. When I learned to sew in my 40s, I used to perfectly fit size 14 patterns. IT's been a long time since I fitted into that size.
These pants are red!!!!!
It's a huge statement of confidence. I don't know if I'll fit into these pants, but I know I will one day and probably this summer. Perhaps this is my Christmas outfit.
As an added complication, the littlest minibeast woke up vomiting this morning. So today is going to be spent chasing a toddler around the house with the "sick bowl" - not feeling particularly hopeful as we're on sleepsuit number 3 already!
Anyhoo, OH is having his first meal of the day now (I'm not jealous of his extra 150kcal, honest)and keeps checking if I'm k with that. Not sure what's more irritating...

We are looking after our darling grandson for a few hours today while his Mum...
At first when my sister announced she was starting the 5:2 lifestyle 4 weeks ago, I was very dubious. All based on minimal scientific research, I was worried for her health. She encouraged me to watch the 'Eat, Fast, Live Longer' documentary to try and understand why she was following 5:2, and it just totally made sense. I have decided to follow her lead and try it out myself.
My Reasons For Starting 5:2
- 1 - At the age of 21 I discovered I had a Melanoma (now removed) and it has been made apparent that skin cancers run in the family. So the idea of reducing the risk of developing further cancers particularly stands out to me, along with all the other suggested health benefits.
- 2 - I haven't really ever found myself totally comfortable with my body. The regular dieting/healthy eating methods just don't work for me, but this is only...
