Feeling a bit blue...

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

I finally bit the bullet and dyed my hair blue/purple!

I genuinely feel like a mermaid and I'm also below 230lbs! by a tiny fraction but hell, I will take that tiny fraction!

My weekly weigh-in is tomorrow and I've already lost 5.1 lbs this week. Let's see if we can round that up to a nice 6 lbs!

Thanks everyone for commenting on my previous blog about my clothes all being way too big! I've taken in my work blouses (mainly because I knew they were the easiest alteration!) and I'm considering which trousers I will alter myself as some of them already had massive legs so maybe I'll just alter the small ones? I really do hate a wide leg trouser....

Thank goodness I have a modicum of sewing skills! I might take a few things to a professional tailor but only my expensive things because the majority of my jeans are from places like Asos, New Look, Next, or Dorothy Perkins and weren't expensive enough to validate taking them to a tailor (tailors are pretty expensive here....)

I'm definitely going to be checking out all of the sales for anything new!

I've also been checking out a lot of fashion magazines... I never used to do that, but now that I know I look good in clothes..... WHY NOT? emoticon

    very nice hair ^_^ and grats on getting below 230! I wish I knew how to do some minor alterations to my clothes. As it is no one in my family can, so I always to buy new ones when old ones don't fit lol.

    I'd love to die my hair purple but I think my boss here at work would have a coronary! LOL You look amazing with the new color!!

    I've been looking at the fashion magazines too and also picking out some patterns (I want to sew my own wardrobe!) in my goal size. I'm so excited about it and can't wait for that day! You go girl and enjoy your shopping!!!!

    It looks like you have a plan to turn your Blue mood into something great. I hope you like the hair color you have chosen. I also am glad you have learned that you can look good in clothes that are modern and trendy.
    Best wishes on the alterations and finding some cool new styles
