Well this is my story of how I am "Becoming Melissa". I was racking my brain with what to call my blog and think the word journey and path are a little cliche, but that was what I wanted to write about...my story. So being the big Jane Austin fan that I am I decided to steal the idea for her movie they made, Becoming Jane.

I woke up yesterday morning ... was feeling pretty tired and the weather was screaming to stay home.... all day and so was my weary body. However I had things to do, it was the end of the financial year and stuff needed to be paid!

So after a morning of ironing dishes and attending to my two lovely children it was actually time to shower!!! So I did… And then I went down stairs and I got my all the time only pair of jeans out of the dryer. I proceeded to dress and experienced the zipping up of my jeans with a greatness of ease. No excess fat to fight or contort so not to get pinched by the zip. Just straight up and out of the dryer even....oh my goodness instead of my clothes shrinking in the wash I am!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am feeling good, it has been not without challenge as you know but I am getting that excitement to mark my progress. I lost another 9cm this week, the most exciting was 2cm around my bust, I know most women might find that distressing...not me, a 14F is just not something I would ever get excited about. Bring on the D cup!!! I don't even care that I may have to fold them onto a C cup, anything is better than this. A good friend pointed out I could always get them filled up....this is true but actually choosing surgery is not something that I get excited about, just don't like it. I figure my husband will just have to deal with the..."let down" LOL and I am sure that won't be a problem!!

To all of my 4 followers I send my love...thank you for finding my little journey interesting enough to spend your precious time reading about!!!

Love ME
