New milestones for the week...
- First bra wearing! Of course, having lost about 8 kgs means I've decreased in bra sizes by about a cup and a half so I had to fossick in the back of the drawer for an old smaller one which hadn't been thrown out, thank goodness for lack of organisation! I have never been a fan of bras so I was happily hanging free for the past few months but lets face it ladies, boobs look way better in bras. There's just no argument. (Unless you're a perky 16 year old)
- Today I drove my car for the first time after the all clear from the doctor, the physio and the pain management specialist. Excellent. I now feel like an adult again. I did ruin the sedate adulthoodness of it all by boucning, waving and grinning madly like a loonie to MR who I was dropping off at the airport to go back to work ( :( ) Independence is a precious thing.
- Liver gym. Who woulda thunk there was such a thing? At the hospital there are gym classes run by the physios for people who have had or are awaiting a liver transplant. Excellent opportunity to meet others who have experienced it and to get back into shape after the op. And they want me to go twice a week for a few months. And I don't have to pay anything. Fabulous! My first session was on Monday and I did just fine. I'm only doing one session this week and next week I have my school's final assembly so I'll only make it to one session next week but after than I plan to make the most of free gym and build up those back muscles so I can get rid of the bloody awful back pain.
So exciting times abound my way. However, the next thing on my list of things to achieve is not quite so exciting.
Dreadful at the best of times, now it is downright shit. Unless I want to flash a gimoungo red scar to the world (no thanks) its a bathers onesie for me. Every pair I have tried on so far (two) has made me feel as though I should have three children under 5 hanging off my leg. A bit mumsie. Which is fine for mums, they are very nice bathers with lots of underwire and moulded cups and support. But I don't really need that. I still feel I have a few years of sexy svelte bathing attire left in me, especially after milestone number one shrinkage. I need a size 12 for my hips and my boobs really only want a 10 or less. And you can't mix and match a onesie.
So I've hit the internet for some inspiration and please, if you have seen any lovely onesies (or tankinis because let's face it, getting a onesie bathing suit on while dry is a bloody challenge so I can only imagine what it will be like when wet) please please send links and shop names my way. Preferably available in WA!
