The Aftermath.

So the reaction to the haircut has been pretty much what's been seen here. Generally 'Wow,' *2 second pause* 'I like it!'

In the spirit of the new look, I decided it was high time I bought some new clothes. My old ones were hanging off me, except for my jeans, which didn't fit when I started the diet.

I dunno what it is, but I can see the fuggest clothes and make them look good. There have been several times when I've tried on clothes for the freak value, only to find out that they look fucking hot. My fave example of this was a pair of poo brown corduroy pants that looked like they'd been made out of carpet. Seriously, they were FUG! But when I tried them on, they were HAWT!

I've digressed.

So I shopped my size 16 arse off. New dress that's fug on the rack, but absolutely stunning on my rack. A few new shirts, new underwear, new socks, new gym clothes. I bought everything except pants. I even picked up a pair of shoes that go with absolutely everything.

I was stoked to be buying size 14 tops and dresses. Its a huge change for me. I've gone from a 16-18 to a 14-16. I didn't want to buy a whole lot cuz I'm broke, and

So when I got my few purchases home I looked at my overflowing cupboards and decided to clean them out.

Eight bags of clothes to throw out...

My cupboards are now looking a little desolate. Ahh well. Post Christmas sales are coming up...

Ah so the old saying of clothes maketh the man works in reverse---hot bod woman maketh the clothes---
But if you can look good in your jeans and a white t-shirt, you can make it in anything

Your hair is pretty hot! :)

A lot of the time it just takes the right person to wear something for it to look good.

And if you feel good, you look good.

Wonderful news Phish :)

Your hard work is paying off!

If you haven't already given the bags of clothes away, contact a Domestic Violence shelter. They'll love them for women who have fled in the middle of the night...

New hair, new clothes... what else are you going to change? New job?

I kept you pair of fat pants and one pair of fat shorts (who knew they made 46 inch waist cargo shorts?). I still pull them out when I'm feeling fat and remember how big I was.
