I have told myself I am not going to buy any new clothes until I get to my target...hopefully by November (the big birthday!) I am just going to wear a belt! Can already pull my trousers down without undoing them! My friend said I will look like the little kid in the film Big at the end when he is wearing his fathers suit!.....Hope so. Has anyone else left it that long before going shopping or do you think there will have to be an interim purchase?
