    How pleased am I just been clothes shopping and instead of my usual struggle to find a bra anywhere that fits me i managed to fit into a 38 C comfortably instead of my usual 44DD, and a pair of size 18 trousers instead of a 22, for the first time shopping wasnt a complete nightmare.

    Losing weight is going to be expensive all these new clothes but what a great reason for a shopping binge, and i feel fab

    Hi Ozzy

    So glad you have had a great time shopping it's fantastic when it no longer is a chore.

    Don't get to comfortable in those new sizes though and same some money for when these new clothes are hanging off!

    I can't wait to be able to buy lovely bras off the peg in any shop! Apparently if you are overweight you like frumpy bras lol. Or have to pay a zillion quid for one!

    Well done, cant wait to post the same post in a few months!

    Oh, I so know what you mean! This losing weight business can cost you a flaming fortune in new clothes - especially as you can drop dress sizes so quickly on a VLCD. Fun though innit? :D

    As I just posted on my diary thread, I've just discovered the previously undiscovered joys of charity shops - I'd never realised before what bargains can be had in them! A real bonus for those of us who are having to replace our entire wardrobes on a regular (ish) basis and don't have loadsamoney to spend on new clothes :)

    Posted on the general thread about this, but I'm so thrilled here it is again!! I bought some linen trousers in the sale at Tesco today, and they fit beautifully. THEY ARE A SIZE 12!!!!!!!! I still can't belive it - other people are a 12 - not ME. Chatterbox is saying that they're making things bigger nowadays.............
