size does matter!


This is me squeezed into a large sized tshirt. Pretty cosy. I got it free from the freshers fair. Since I'm a third year I shouldn't have gone but I needed to stock on a load of free crap. I didn't even look at the t-shirt til I was cold and squeezed it over my dress. I looked in the mirror and almost died laughing. Size does matter. What a funny way for life to tell me to get back on track!!!

Also when I was in town yesterday meeting my flat mate for lunch I was standing in the queue to get a drink when I noticed the girl in front of me was wearing the same tshirt as me. Initially I was like cooool but when I looked again I felt sad. My snoopy (thats what was on the shirt) was twice the size of hers. Clearly size eight is smaller but my Snoopy was the godzilla of Snoopy's. But instead of heading over to Krispy Kreme to down my sorrow in a yummy glazed filled box of donuts I walked it off and got a banana instead. Also the thought of big_mummy giving me another arse kicking inspired me to be good.

I am back on track but with little enthusiasm to be honest. I am just not feeling it. *sigh* well not the exercise bit anyways...

Well shit...you know I understand. I think I am pulling out of this dump...I hope you are too.

And your Godzilla / Snoopy line made me laugh even if I should not have.

getting a hold of the food issue is key-good job for reaching for that banana not the donuts! :) High 5 my friend! :)

wow high gives on the walk and banana, and snoopy is not the size of godzilla you dumb fuck xx

I've always been a fan of Godzilla, so the godzilla of snoopy's doesn't sound like a bad thing to me, but I get your point. I often feel that way about my big-fat-man-rock-tshirts. Led zeppelin shown actual size across my big belly. Not that cool, I gotta say. Still...free stuff is fun, and at least you're back on track now. Kick ass, friend.

I lurves godzilla!!! Gamera even more!! [what's not to love about a giant turtle shooting flames out of its butt?]

Keep replacing that impulse for donuts with walks and a banana, and changes will ensue. It's about consistancy, She-ra.

You look mega cute in the pink T.

Your Godzilla could totally kick her Snoopy's ass! Good job on resisting temptation! Now I want Krispy Kreme...

Hey, some of us envy the fact you can get that shirt on... I was actually very proud of myself fitting in a 2xL shirt the other day!

I think it rocked for you to stand tall when the flash of comfort with donuts hit. A few days back I had to get a little candy loving and am know paying back the scale for it.

Thing is sweets, you don't HAVE to be enthusiastic about it. You just have to do it. The enthusiasm always comes when you see results.

At least you can fit into a large. There was a time when I could not. I just have to ask....did you wear jeans with your dress all day?

Good job on the healthy choices....Snoopy will be shrinking in no time.

You don't have to feel it, just DO it anyway. It is the only way I got through some of those blah days.

I love the T-shirt, nice freebie, even if snoopy is bigger than size 8 snoopy.

Sorry about the last post, know exactly how you feel :(

Well done on keeping up with it all, even if you don't feel it.

Doesn't matter why you're on track, as long as you are!

Here's to shrinking Snoopy's!!

Krispy Kreme are evil. I thought I was safe over there until we found one at Harrod's!

MackAttack said...

sometimes it's just good to work on healthy living even if you don't want to...Glad you are moving in the right direction!

Aliana said...

way to go on the banana and walk...that is precisely what I am trying to teach myself to do!

Julie said...

Sometimes life throws at you a hint. I love that you were able to recognize the importance that Krispy Kreme will not help your snoopy get smaller. lol!

Great post!!
