And so, I joined SlimmingWorld. Don’t worry, I’m not going to sell it to you. I don’t think it really matters what diet you do as long as it works for you. I mean, don’t get me wrong, some diets are proper terrible and should be avoided at all costs. But the more sensible ones? Find one you like.
The other thing I did was make myself a plan. I made a list of all the clothes I owned that I was to big for and assigned each thing a weight at which I could get them back. The science behind this was mostly me trying everything on and putting them in order of how bad I looked in them. As I earned clothes back I also got to throw away things I didn’t want or need any more.
First to go was this massive blue shirt. One of the problems with putting weight on around your waist, but not your chest, is that shirts that fit you around the middle tend to gape at the neck. Big blue, which I think I subconsciously believed would eventually be a snug fit, was huge around the neck and I never actually wore it outside. It went back to the charity shop from whence it came. Ta ra, big blue shirt.
