A Supporting Role

I've decided to join Weight Loss Wednesdays hosted by Jennifer at Rosey Little Things and rather than only charting my progress I will provide some tips and tricks that I find help me on my journey and hopefully help you too


My first bit of advice:

Have your bra size measured correctly

image: Ad Classix

It is quoted that approx 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size so I will assume that not all of my blog friends are in the 20% that are

Aside from the obvious reasons for wearing the right size bra more importantly it will make you appear slimmer and if you look slimmer, you will feel slimmer - far easier to avoid reaching for the biscuit tin if you're feeling good about yourself

It is recommended you are measured once a year and yesterday I took myself to John Lewis and came home with a couple of these. They may be simple but I feel so much better in my clothes today

What are you waiting for? Go de-clutter that underwear draw of yours and reach for the tape measure

    Think I will go to JL next - snooty cow in M&S when I went in February after stopping breastfeeding told me - 'well my dear you really must wear better support or you will get the droop!!!' (I think 4 babies will have done that!!) I got a right shock when she measured me thought I was a D cup was actually a B!!!!!

  6. I want one of those bra tape measures on that site you listed. It is such a fab idea.

    Did get properly measured a few years ago and went from a B to an E cup, how wrong had I been getting it all those years :o) x

  14. I should join too Victoria. Most people would say i don't need to lose weight, but i think its all about whether your happy with yourself or not. I really could do with toning up and losing a stone so that i can fit into some of my lovely pre baby clothes!!!!

  18. Great advice, thanks, My Hope & Greenwood book arrived, filled with some great recipes slightly disappointed that there are no hard sweet recipes like lolipops or rhubarb & cream,i did get another candy recipe book recently that has great recipes but not as cool looking as H&G's, Have a sweet day! x

  20. Great tips....You always have the BEST info. I think I need to take your advice...with weight gain comes bigger boobs~lol and I am still wearing the same bra size as when I was 10 lbs lighter. Yep..I really need new bras!

  21. Great tips hun, I agree with Rose, good knickers are a must!
    Why does any extra weight always go straight to the boobs? I'm naturally quite small busted (when I was a size 10) but now still carrying the damn baby weight my boobies are huge.......YUCK!
    ((Beki))

    Hmmmm, maybe that was a bit personal lol!

  22. I agree 100 per cent on the bra measure. I'm a bra advisor in M&S and you'd be surprised at how many people wear the wrong size bra... usually far too small or far too big.Lucey x
