    Yesterday I was going through my wardrobe and I realised how many gorgeous dresses I have that I've bought in sales over the past 2 years with the intention of "it doesn't fit now but I'll slim into them" but of course I never actually did. Anyway, I tried a couple on not expecting them to fit but was astounded when I managed to fit into 9 of them (all a mixture of size 14s/16s) with three of them being too BIG!!!! I actually had a little cry because I can fit back into my favourite green Karen Millen dress that I've only worn once! I am so over the moon right now.

    I was moaning the other day about how none of my clothes fit now and I'm so shocked to actually be able to wear some of the things I completely forgot I had.

    I've by no means been perfect on this diet. But I have such a physical job that I think it's meant I've still burnt my blips off. I've been 100% for the past two days and I'm hoping today I'll make it a third.

    Two months ago I was 16st7lbs and 7 weeks on I weigh 14st 2lbs, in my opinion this is nothing short of a bloody miracle because there is no way possible I could have lost this much on any other diet. I've still got a long way to go but I feel so positive that I can do it.

    FANTASTIC! i only had clothes down to a size 18, never been less than that since i was younger, so i am having to buy all new clothes for work and everything. i am picking things up here and there in the sales, but it is pricy! i love karen millen dresses, they are gorgeous but so expensive! is the quality good?

    i'm 5 10 and still in 16 trousers, some 14 tops. i am hoping to get to a 12/14 top and a 14 bottom at my goal. still massive to some, but i'll feel amazing at that size and will be a healthy weight. don't worry about it, it will happen!

    WELL DONE!!! -Love your name too :)-

    It's great isn't it?

    The only thing that isn't that brill is that two or three weeks later you won't be able to wear them again! For a happier reason this time but nonetheless! I have had a Dior suit nearly framed in my closet. Bought it years and years ago for "when I'll be a well respected thin professional going to meetings". Lo and behold, the job part happened, the "thin" thing? Not so much :) After some weeks on CD I realized I may be on my way to wearing that ridiculous size so started trying. A couple of months ago I fit into it! For 6 weeks I wore it day in and day out for the sheer shock that it fit LOL Guess what? It looks like I borrowed it from a far bigger person now and have to have it fitted for a heck load of money. -Not till I'm done though, not that silly :)-

    Well done Dita, you must be feeling fab. It's lovely when you don't feel like a stranger in your own wardrobe. There's nothing more upsetting than not fitting into things you love and nothing nicer than getting back into them!
