I went to our new Suzanne Grae store yesterday to look for some crop pants. I hadn't tried there the other day when I had such a hard time finding any to come up past my hips. Sure enough I found some really nice pairs there and met a kindred spirit at the same time.
The "girl" who served me (late 30's I reckon) was really helpful and we started talking about weight loss and self image and how it is really hard sometimes for us to accept our new size because when we look in the mirror we see the old body.
She was a WW! She had lost quite a bit of weight and still has about 10kgs to go. She is the same height as me and looks good at the moment but wants to keep going to goal weight. I explained to her that I don't go to meetings but have followed the WW points system and it really worked for me. It was really exciting to talk to someone who knows how I feel and I guess that is what it is like for those of you who go to meetings. It would be nice to catch up with others and compare notes. I am really pleased to be able to do that via our blogs, but it was great to talk to someone in person too!
She was also a good salesperson, as by the time I left the store I had bought 3 pairs of crop pants ( 1 lovely self-striped denim with a nice bone coloured tie belt and one black summery pair and a light browny summery pair), a pair of gorgeous brown sandals and a lovely fitted shirt! Oh well, I do need all new summer clothes remember!
