So for me they made me happier, less anxious and stressed and I was able to eat (and overeat!) normally. I wouldn't say it was them affecting my metabolism, more that they made me more relaxed (I had real issues about eating in front of people and, ironically considering I was very slim, I was obsessed with being fat). So if someone else ate when they were miserable, they might lose weight on them due to not feeling the need to comfort eat any more. That's my twopen'orth, ftw
    Hiya Carmilla,

    You have a point there, which I hadn't thought about. I am more relaxed, less anxious, and have a huge appetite - I can easily eat the same amount as hubby now, whereas when we first got together (15 years ago, when I was a svelte size 8!), my portion was around half the size of his.

    A very valid point, thanks for that!

    I too had huge problems eating socially, but I don't any more. You've definitely hit home here I think!

    So now to the other extreme, I can't eat out because I am on shakes, bars, and tiny S&S meals until I reach my goal weight! It's going to ruin my social life for a while, but I am hoping the results will be worth it!

    Lol, ftw....was wondering!! xxx

    That's what it's supposed to be, and from experience, what has happened to me too.
    I am currently a size 14, even though I still weight 12st 8lbs (could be more - I have had a massive chocolate blast given I am starving from tomo!) - if I drop to 12st, I know I'll get in most of my size 12's. Because I did before I got preggers!

    Sizes have changed over recent years, have you noticed? When I'm around the 11st mark, I am a small 12.
    Yet when I was 8st 4lbs (which was always my weight until I was 28 yrs old), I was a size 10!

    If I was 8st 4lbs now, I would drown in a size 10!

    I think they've increased the sizes to allow for the sizes - double zero, zero, 2, 4, and 6, which weren't around when I was younger! If I was smaller than an 8, I had to buy kids clothes!

    It also niggles me that sizing from shop to shop is so inconsistent too! I have a couple of size 10 tops I can easily wear now, yet others which are size 1 and are snug at that8. Go figure!!
