[QUOTE=cori93437;965704]Take them to a good alterations place... they can get you through![/QUOTE]
While I still need some for winter (my winter one's look worn out) I will see if the vender (a friend's mother) can alter then for me. Thanks for the good idea cori.
I've already done the new pants thing and can tell I'm about a month or two away from having to do it again. Then there's a bunch of cool motorcycle shirts I bought that are already hanging off my body. That one really hurts because they aren't cheap, and I like them alot. :( I'm going to keep wearing them until it looks too ridiculous. Bagged up and gave away a bunch of basically new clothes that I can't wear anymore.
Today my ring fell right off the finger just standing there with hands at side. Fingers are getting skinny too I guess.
And here's a weird one: my nose is dripping alot since starting this eating pattern. Don't know if it's related but there you go. <shrug>
Hah nose dripping is from all the awesome herbs and spices we now eat!
My gripes for grok to laugh over the campfire:
1) people who go on about how much cholesterol and heart disease I must have. I inwardly smile because I understand their doctors have told them to trust the Australian Dietary Guidelines, but if I was vegetarian NO ONE WOULD CARE. THAT is unfair.
2) spending money on smaller clothes
3) when my boyfriend says 'oh by the way we are meeting friends for dinner tonight' after I have defrosted some lovely grass-fed meat
4) running out of coconut oil
5) having so much energy and zest for life I canny sit still anymore, anytime. I jut want to be out in the sunshine, walking jumping and playing.
6) getting spurts of bacon fat all over te kitchen floor :-D
7) taking photos of food. Eating this way makes you an awesome cook and it cuts into your eating time when you take photos hah
Obviously we are all optimally leading fantastic healthy lives and mind frames if these are our main gripes.
Have to say I love losing weight and having people think you must have an eating disorder, when obviously the only eating disorder is now loving and appreciating quality food more than ever. Can't wait for someone to open Australia's first paleo restaurant. I hope it's somewhere in a cave!!
[QUOTE=Owly;964814]Ugh, I hadn't considered the narrow foot part of it. Wide boots would also likely have a wide foot bit.
Goddamnit, I want cute boots![/QUOTE]
I have the same issue... skinny feet, big calves. Even now I look at my calves and they don't LOOK that huge, they certainly don't have a lot of fat on them... but dammit boots don't fit me! My friend gave me some of her old boots that she could do up and I couldn't... and seriously she's got another 20kg on me. I don't get it! I'm like, even if I lose weight, I can't see how my calves will get that much thinner because they don't seem all that fat as it is.
Yesterday I put on my all time favorite pair of jeans to go to the movies with my fam to the movies. I can not deny it any more they are getting too big for me (more like I am getting to small for them). Which is sad cuz I really like them. I bought them a couple years ago. Not gonna find them again. Me and the wife will probably have a hard time buying clothes unless we try on everything as we still are stuck on our old sizes in our minds but in actuality we have gotten smaller. No more oh it says XL shirt get it cuz I'm an XL. I guess you can call it reverse denial...when you think you are bigger than you really are. But I'll take that over normal denial (I can still fit those size 36 pants I know I can) any day.
My frustration now... is my husband. Specifically, trying to talk him into buying new clothes.
His jeans are falling off him. He decided he needed a new belt, and I had to talk him out of buying a 42" belt - which is the size of his jeans - and finally convinced him to get a 38". Naturally, it fits fine.
He keeps giving me grief about wanting to get him jeans that fit now. *sigh*

Try eBay. Seriously. I had a favorite skirt that I bought like 5 years ago at least. Last time I checked (sometime this year), there were 3-4 of them on eBay.
I just HATE eating a tender, delicious, perfectly seasoned ribeye once a week. It really gets me down ;(

Its terrible. I'll end up eating my lunch far too early because I can't stand the though of my ribeye sitting in the fridge all lonely like it is.
Frustration - my new size 6(UK/AUS) office dress is getting a little tight in the traps area. Maybe I should go back to the barbie weights?...
