    Hi Everyone

    Wanted to share something with you all. I went to the wedding dress shop with my friend and her other bridesmaid to try on the dresses she wants us to get. Last time we went I was trying on size 18. My friend asked the lady if I could try on a 14. The lady put it on me and said this is far too big for you. I was delighted so I put on a 12 and it fits beautifully. So She reckons ill prob need a 10 when I get to goal! I am proper happy. This week has been great seeing all the changes in my my size.

    To anyone struggling stick with it, its so worth it!

    Wow Emz - I bet that was an incredible feeling. I've really started to lose inspiration for carrying on because I feel so great... but the idea of getting in a 10/12 might do it... :D

    I know exactually what you mean. I do feel great but I am quite determined to reach what I set out to. Hopefully get there by Feb Just keep your eyes on that magic number or size you wanted so much.

    I have to say I am getting lots of "Dont go too far" now and people asking when I will be finished. Also saying to be carefull cause it willbe hard to maintain the smaller I get. I know people mean well or are just jealous but its really annoying me. Infact I think im gonna just tell people ive stopped in the new year but continue becuase for the 4 -5 weeks it will take to get rid of the extra stone i have to lose.

    I guess we have to just take the compliments and keep going until we are happy with where we are.

    Thanks everyone I did feel great, didnt expect to have had on size 12 dress!!

    I love the dress. Not sure what color she is going for but its a full length dress with beading round a sweet heart neck line. It has a corset back and is boned. I love it!!!

    Greentea it is brilliant! I found trying on the dresses quite depressing last time as I was in size 18 dresses but this time I was thrilled. Felt like to princess!
