I had to say, I've been shopping!!!!! No more size 26's (that's 22's to you guys) I am in a 22 (which is an 18 to you) confused yet????

I have bought two pairs of black work trousers, a white cross over to shirt, a strappy going out top, a sleeveless pink work out top, a white blouse and matching embroidered skirt (I had a job interview so it had to be done) and a pair of workout pants, again in pink.

No more shopping now til size 18 (14), by which time I can shop in normal shops instead of the plus sizes!!! And I bought my 20 pound loss perfume, Wild Fig and Cassis. The lady sprayed some Necatrine and Honey on the paper she wrapped the perfume in, so guess what my 40 pound reward will be???? LOL!!!!

I'll try your ab exercises (If I have any abs that is, not seen any sign of them in centuries!!!) Ms Jkath. I love my gym now, been going since Feb, and have been minimum three times a week every week since, no skipping!!! And I am swimming again!!!! I have never been so active, who knew I loved exercise so much??? The eliptical is my favourite, I have gone from nearly dying after 10 minutes to sailing through 30 minutes on a hill program! Oh and I do weights now as well.

No wonder I have been MIA!!!!

KYLES! YOU ARE AMAZING!!!
I am so proud of you!!!
I love the eliptical too, but must confess I have an addiction to the stairmaster....
Doesn't it feel great to buy new clothes!! and especially pink ones to boot!
What company makes the wild fig & cassis? I'm not sure, but it sounds like one I saw at Sephora recently. They also have one that is a chocolate based fragrance(!)
My "ab-toning" gift was some "Pink Sugar" bath gel. It's my current favorite perfume and I got to treat myself to it when I finally saw the "oval" cut.
Again, I think you are doing an awesome job - please please keep us updated on your great works!

Kyles, doesn't exercising feel good. I am so proud of you. Keep up the good work. I also feel much better after exercising. Like you I have been exercising 3-4 times per week. I wish I had somewhere to go swimming, but I consider myself lucky to have a gym at work. I permanently have my workout clothes packed in the car. If you get a chance, take a beginners pilates or yoga class. I do pilates on my own at home. It feels so good to work all those muscles. Don't forget to stretch before and after your exercise routine.

Good Job!!

The perfume is made by a company called Jo Malone, a very small English manufacturer. She has quite a range of scents, maybe I should start making them 10 pound rewards and then I could get the whole set!!!! LOL (I would also be too poor to buy clothes.

I haven't tried yoga or pilates yet, the classes at my works gym are all wrong for me, but I have joined my local gym (which is too small for classes) but have rights to their big sister gym. I am on holidays this week so I will give it a try.

The exercise has been the biggest change for me. Prior to January I did nothing, nada, not a thing - now I can't wait to hit the gym!!!

I just bought my first boxing gloves today and I'm starting a class on Wednesday mornings. I can't wait (but I hope the others who've been doing it a long time don't intimidate me too much!)

Guys! I started by cardio boxing class today and it was fantastic! What a rush!
This is something I could see you getting into as well, Kyles - have you tried it?
