    Went after work with OH to look for a pair of jeans that will fit me for the next month or so as none in my wardrobe fit anymore. Considering I started this diet just over 10 weeks ago and a size 22 was tight I have just bought a pair of jeans from Debenhams in a size 16 :eek: They have some stretch in them but still they are so small to look at! I was shaking a little when I went to pay for them at the counter, I thought the woman would refuse to serve me or ask me who they were for!

    Then went into Next and picked up a top in an 18 and a 20, but when I tried them on the 18 was actually a 16 and I am even more amazed that it fit me and that is the size I bought.

    I still feel a little strange about it to be honest - but in a good way.

    I know the next half of this diet won't come as easy the first half but I am excited to see where I end up!

    To everyone wondering if CD is worth it - all I can say is YES YES YES!

    Fantastic... well done. I remember trying on a 14 dress 2 months ago (amazing in itself) & wondering why it was all gappy & weird on top... I needed a 12! Never in all my life had i ever had a size 12 anything before. You've done so well hon, and it's gonna get better still!

    well done hun! Just goes to show a glimpse of what the future holds for us all!
    I started a big size 18, and i'm now a 14....in 9 weeks! Never in my life would i have dreamed of being able to get back into a 14 this soon in!
    Cant wait until we're jumping up and down about being a size 10 or 12!!! :)

    Well done Wales, you've done fantastically well and it's a lovely feeling.
    It takes the mind a while to catch up and I always think people will tell me that there's nothing in my size available.

    Thanks for all your comments. I can only see positives from this diet at the moment and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel - even though I still have a way to go. I think we are all doing so well just sticking with this diet day in day out achieving our goals - however we get through the days ;)

    Have a great weekend everyone (hope this good mood lasts me!!)

    Imagisil.. you've done well with your loss too, just in 5 weeks. My loss has been slower then other ppl's, but I'm like that in every diet. Inch loss is what I look at now, after 5 weeks I'd loos 18 inches all over.. So as long as it's shifting, I'm happy. xxx
