Lol your mind works just like mine! Why did we do it? I think for me it was convenience and denial. I put on all my weight after having a baby and my life got so busy with raising my daughter I put myself last, including losing the weight.

You really don't remember it either, it's wierd, like you block out getting bigger. I went from a 10 to a 20 in less than a year.

OMG Abz, what a great question. I wish i had tried harder to lose the weight instead of just buying bigger sizes. As i lost the weight last year i chucked out my bigger clothes as i went down the sizes as i was determined not to need them again. unfortunately it hasnt worked but i have refused to spend a fortune so im having to wear stuff thats a bit tighter than i would like and have bought a few cheap things from places like asda.

I think i did similar to Kelly - i had 2 babies exactly a year apart and it was all too easy to tell myself it was "just baby weight". It was all too easy to keep wearing maternity clothes & stretchy things round the house. It was only when i had to actually go out & buy something that i would think WTF whats going on? And then proceed to tell myself that it was because they make clothes much smaller these days.
I was totally convinced in my mind that i was no bigger than i was before i had the children, but i also know i was self-deluding because i could see in the mirror how big i'd gotten. Somehow though it just never registered. I could see it, i could physically feel it but i didnt feel it mentally iykwim?
It was only when i went back to work a few months ago that it started to sink in...probably aided by the fact that i had to buy some new trousers and i needed a size 26 :(

it just occurred to me the other day. and then i lost a lot of weight and didn't want to get rid of some trousers because i really liked them. and then i 'rediscovered' them and wore them a lot and they got tight. i just grew into them!! this time i mean to throw away all my bigger clothes as soon as they become too big. a lot won't because i'm hourglass shaped skirts that used to rest on my hips now just fit around my waist and only go to the knee instead of the shin *blushes* but my trousers are going to go the second i fit into a smaller size!!

Hiya hun,
I hear you. However, I got rid of all my size 14s so I have no choice but to get into my 10s and 12s. its so easy to just keep fitting into bigger clothes and ignore the whole weight issue. I been avoiding scales since march but thanks God only put on 7lbs...wake up call. back to SS tomorrow.

Well, same here. Just kept buying bigger sizes..
I have no idea where it all came from either because I wasn't a great eater. I guess I ate the wrong stuff and I wasn't active either...

I don't even have the "excuse" (it's not meant as an insult to all you mums, it's meant to kick my own arse..) of having had a baby.. I only have a dog...

So there we go, put on about 7 stone in 10 years and never noticed...well, denial is the word..

I lost and got down to a size 10 Oz and then .....well..I dont know bought the next size up and still thought it looked good. But really I dont like wearing that size and now I feel uncomfortable and want my old clothes back. I want to feel fashionable again not just "wearing these clothes today because they are the only one that fit!"

Totally understand you there!!!!

After I had my daughter last July I was very ill and lost all my baby weight in less than 3 weeks - actually weighed less than pre-pregnancy!!!! However I have gradually put the weight on and then some, without really realising it. I was going through a rough time and my weight was at the back of my mind!!!!

It was only when I went back to work in Feb and had to get some new work clothes that I realised how much i had gained!!!! Had to buy size 24 trousers, whereas I was 20/22 bottom half before. I still blamed it on post-pregnancy tho!!!
