    Seeing as all I ever seem to read on here is women (rightfully so) bragging about dropping dress sizes, here is my own victory today.

    Managed to buy an off the peg pair of jeans from Next, previously have had to rely on my trips to America to get the jeans I wanted.

    Odd that one of the pairs I tried on were button fly, but they had no buttons - thought it might have been some sort of new fashion I had missed out on but the assistant assured me they were faulty :D

    Well done Lee - that is fab.

    I know that being able to buy clothes from regular shops was a real milestone for me - and remember don't go crazy and buy too many new clothes as it won't be long before you will be needing to buy the next size down!!!!

    well done Lee - thats a real milestone, I bet you were dead chuffed with yourself.

    As ruth said though, dont spend too much money as they'll be too big in a couple of weeks at the rate you are losing weight.

    I'd like to be able to buy jeans from a regular shop.
    Most of my clothes currently come from online fat shops.:D

    Well done. I read your post out to my husband - he's been losing weight too and until a week or to ago he could only get the jeans he liked in the US - we'd come back weighted down with denim. He's just into a size 38 waist and he's really pleased with himself too. I've told him that's not a good enough excuse not to go to NY anymore, or else :D

    I remember the first time I bought a pair of jeans in George (Asda), I wanted to hijack the customer services tannoy and announce it to the world!!

    Well done Lee - just one of the many rewards you'll be reaping for sticking with the plan :)
