After a Decade the Body Can Change

Yesterday I tried on a pair of blue jeans I adored!

When I got up yesterday morning I decided to clear some space in my wardrobe, because I needed to feel good with myself. Before I got married and moved to London (2005)I used be obsessive about my wardrobe organisation but since living in London with the excuse of not having enough space in our flat I am neglecting my passion for organising my clothes (we have a decent walk-in-wardrobe but that is not enough for my many books and garments). Every time I am clearing my wardrobe I try on all my old clothes to check if I still like them or if they still fit me. If the second is the answer them I pile them up into occasion and everyday wear. Then I divide them into seasonal (winter and summer) wear.
In the winter I put all my summer clothes in a suitcases and 'file' them away for the following season and vice-versa for the summer. So this is what I haven't done in seasons.

Yesterday I had the wonderful idea to clear space and make room for my future plans. I don't want to get into June with lots of things still to clear out, this is why I decided to start at the end of January.

These were my ideas when I put on the blue jeans. They fitted alright but I couldn't zip them. It was then that I felt the world on me. Six years ago it was a battle to take them off (because I loved them so much), but yesterday it was a battle putting them on. :(! I know my body shape can't be the same as when I was a teen but not managing to wear those jeans I found it hard to cope with the idea. But, hey after a decade the body can change.

To find consolation I turned on thesitsgirls, this blog is like a wishing pot. Since I found about it every time I am in need I find the answer on this blog. I was so upset and I started to comment on the blog, when I started scrolling up I found a comment by another blogger Krizia. She writes for the blog eatsmartagesmart, this blog is great for tips on healthy living and eating. I wrote a comment and asked for an advice, she was very nice to give it to me, this cheered me up. Knowing that I shouldn't stress over my food was a weight off the mind. I read her blog and in one post she tipped of how to be fit and keep fit forever. This is what I would like to achieve for the future. Be healthy before the PLAN and after the PLAN. This is what she wrote:

MsBabyPlan – thanks for your kind words.

May I say that I eat pizza, burger, French dessert and I drink wine. Don’t get me started on chips!

It’s all about balance and NOT punishment!

I can assure you that I do my best NOT to take out the fun out of eating and still offering my readers a lot of times to keep a healthy weight!

Thanks for dropping by!
