    I am so thrilled about my weight loss but I have a few downers too, and I wonder if anyone else has some downers. Mine are:

    • I can wear small clothes now but nothing too short and my skin is now more flabby and hanging. So all my plans on a fab summer wardrobe have to be changed.
    • I am a huge charity shop fan but most of the clothes there are bigger sizes so I can't find much that fits me now
    • My hubby always used to tease me about my big bum, now says it's too flat and need to get some roundness.. how I can do that, I have no idea!
    I tried so hard to get to where I am, and I won't change the new me but I have realised we can't have everything :cry:

    Yes I need to do exercises and will try what you said allie plus leg lifts and all sorts.
    I guess for every plus there are minuses. I need to get off the couch and do something!

    Perhaps I need to do that. I have a gym about 100 yards from where I live. I need to get out of my lazy mode!

    Try charity shops in more upmarket areas for smaller sizes.

    Every single pair of jeans I own are too big, and I can't afford to buy any more!

    Although going into Next and trying them on is a great way to lift your mood :D

    I miss my boobs. They weren't very much to begin with, but they were there. Now I look like a boy!

    For me it's the clothes thing too. I'm in between sizes with most of my clothes now, but some favourite things are getting too baggy to wear-they look daft. Just cannot afford new clothes :(
    That's all I can think of at the moment, but I haven't gotten very far yet so I'm sure I'll find more things to complain about later ;)

    That's a good idea... when I go to other towns I will definitely look for them!
    Here in Ilfracombe, we have 4 charity shops but not many with small sizes.
    Mind you I do grab the odd bargain. I bought a fantastic suit last week for a fiver!

    BTW I lived in Kenya when I was a sprog too! I was 9 and left after a year! My mum and dad split up so came back to England, my dad married a Kenyan lady and I have a half sister. :)

    I am now a size 12 *screams in delight* and have found that it appears to be the most popular size- whenever I see a nice top I try to buy it but they are almost always sold out of a 12

    All my lovely shoes are too big! Who knew your feet got smaller!

    I got bought some lovely clothes for my birthday last year and now they don't fit, I have to keep spending money on work clothes (which I HATE) I have rings that no longer fit, some lovely underwear that I had to throw away and I have had to buy bew coats every year............but it is ALL so worth it!

    Malaika- I bought the Davina super body DVD and do the 'super sculpt' workout from this and can highly recommend it for firming up, feeling toned and having a lovely firm bum

    You won't say that the morning after you do it for the 1st time! lol- you will be cursing my name when your bum and thighs are aching, but I promise it works- I have really seen results
