weight loss

So, I've slowly been loosing weight and I'm now only about 1.5 kg from having lost 10 kg. I've decided that, that's a good point to contemplate buying some new clothes.

If only that was a reward instead of being a horrible torment.

Maybe I'll buy an iPod instead.

silly question -=- have you considered learning how to make your own clothes?

(I have considered it, but the investment in a sewing machine would be a lot for something I'm not sure I'll be any good at)

I've considered it, I even have a cheap sewing machine. I've even used it once to attempt to make something.

On the down side sewing suffers from the "I have so many other things to be doing" excuse. And I am pretty inexperienced.

There are few things that I find more alienating than shopping for clothes (erm, except for cycling clothes, but I have a bit of a fetish there). Ahem. Unfortunately, sooner or later I am going to need new clothes. :(

I am definitely interested in learning to sew.

Alienating? That's an interesting choice of words, I tend to find it depressing.

Hmm.. fetish for cycling clothes, cycle touring, and a yoga instructor... Hmm... you sound quite physically active...

Lost in the Supermarket, or, the clothing store

Well, I do find it depressing as well. :/ I guess it's because I know what clothes suit me (basically, simple clothes) so I have a definite idea of what it is I want. I am usually looking to replace items that have finally worn out, and so I want a new item just like the old one. Unfortunately, when I get to the shop, I realize I am expected to treat 'shopping for clothes' as an entertainment experience rather than a basic task. Thus I am hassled by perky, young shop assistants as I browse through rack after rack of unsuitable, expensive, poorly made and/or 'trendy' clothing. Actually, this scenario doesn't happen any more as I pretty much don't buy clothing nowadays except for cycle clothing and clothing from 'outdoor shops' which at least is usually made of interesting technical fabrics.

I have to be physically active, because if I'm not, I get depressed. :( I am in the second year of my two-year teacher training course for yoga and am being a little bit naughty by trying to get work before I pass my final exam. :)
