Back in black – 1

Today I have something to celebrate, for the first time in about 15 years my BMI is categorised as normal. Today it’s 25,0. I never would have thought I should be there again, but now I am, all thanks to my LCHF lifestyle. However last year before I started my LCHF journey I took a body scan at a gym studio and the result told me I should be about 20 pound less than what I’m now. What??? I don’t think so, Ok it probably wouldn’t hurt loosing a few more pounds, but 20?? I use mostly size M and sometimes S or even XS sometimes. Loosing 20 more pounds would make it harder to find clothes, I hear people who’s that petite is struggling with that. I also believe I would look older if I lost that  much weight. I’m happy as it is and have been for a while. I’m not aiming to be supermodel skinny.

DSC_0330I dag har jeg noe å feire, for første gang siden tidlig 2000 tallet er jeg nå normalvektig. Min BMI er i dag 25,0, jeg hadde aldri trodd at jeg skulle oppleve det igjen, men det er takket være min LCHF livstil at jeg har klart det. Før jeg begynte med lavkarbo tok jeg en body scan på Sats, den viste at målvekten min er 10 kg mindre enn jeg er nå. OK et par kg til hadde nok ikke skadet, men 10 Kg?? Pr. i dag bruker jeg for det meste str. M, noen ganger S og til og med XS noen ganger. Alt etter hvilket merke og hvor de de er produsert. Min Italienske blazer f.eks er XL. Jeg har jo venninner som er veldig slanke og det er ikke alltid bare, bare det heller. Kommer du ned i str. XS er det vanskeligere å finne klær som passer. 

DSC_0329Dress – Designers Remix, scarf – Becksondergaard, boots – Russell & Bromley, London,bag – has no brand

I’ve had a version of this kind of dress probably like forever. They have been worn a lot. It’s a kind of dress which is easy to dress up and down. This is new for the season, it’s a Jeny dress from the Danish brand Designers Remix. I bought it from a Norwegian webshop, unfortunately they don’t ship abroad.  It’s soft and comfy and as I said i’s so versatile. The scarf is from Becksondergaard also a Danish brand, it’s in silk and wool and I bought it a couple of years ago. Boots I bought in London also years ago. Funny how the boots and the bag are about the same color. Bag has no brand on it, I think I bought it 2 years ago, but don’t remember where. Funny because I “always” remember where I bought things.

DSC_0331Jeg har hatt en versjon av denne type kjole i hel mannsalder, det har vært et plagg som jeg faktisk har slitt ut. Denne er ny av året Jeny kjole fra Designers Remix som er et Dansk merke. Jeg kjøpte den på nettbutikken Suser i Sivet. Sjalet er fra Becksøndergård også et Dansk merke, det er en del år gammelt. Skolettene (heter det det lenger forresten) ble kjøpt i London for en del år siden . Vesken er et par gammel også og det er ikke noe merke på den og jeg husker ikke hvor den er kjøpt. Litt rart for jeg husker “alltid” hvor jeg har kjøpt ting.

DSC_0338Here I’ve thrown my new olive coat  on, this is from Bik Bok and was a gift from one of my daughters in law.

Her ha jeg tatt min nye olivengrønne kåpe utenpå, den er kjøpt på Bik Bok og var en gave fra en av mine svigerdøtre. 

I still haven’t moved any of my previous posts over to this blog, so if you want to see how I’ve styled other dresses you can take a look at my old blog here.

Jeg har ennå ikke fått flyttet noen av mine gamle blogginnlegg, men om du har lyst å se hvordan jeg bl.a har stylet andre kjoler så kan du besøke min gamle blogg her

Stay tuned for more options with this black dress.

Wish you all a lovely day, and thanks for the comments on my previous post. Remember you can also follow me on Facebook, there’s a link further down.

 

Until next time

  1. I hear you! My BMI is 25.3, so I am just barely over where I should be! I do feel like losing 10 pounds would work wonders for me.. You look great! I really love seeing women my own age blogging and being fashionable.
