    Hi all I am on my third week of slimming world (newbie) and wondered if anyone has any 'goal clothes'? I was thinking of buying a dress in the size I aim to be but a bit worried it might be disheartening.

    Has anyone done this?

    I haven't because my goal size is what i was before 3 children so I don't want to get something which wouldnt fit my new shape because what ever weight i get to inevitably i will be a different shape

    I haven't bought the item of clothing that I want to get in to, but its my best freinds wedding next year and she has already lost 9 stone (although she's starving herself, and not doing it proper) but I have a picture of the type of dress I want to get for her do. Its a really posh wedding and I want an expensive posh frock to go in! X

    I did have some "goal clothes".

    I didn't go out and buy something too small - and I don't recommend it, either, because your shape might well change, and something that you think will fit might not - but I had a gorgeous pair of purple jeans that I'd saved from when I used to fit in them.

    I loved those jeans.
    So they were a really good goal to aim for.

    But then I slimmed past them and had to give them away!

    I did have another goal though: there was a brand of clothes (Desigual) that I absolutely loved, but couldn't wear, because they don't do big sizes, and they come up really small anyway.
    So, although I didn't go out and buy anything from them, I kept going into the shop, and reminding myself how gorgeous their stuff was, and promising myself something as soon as I was at target.
    Which I just bought, last week!

    So I'd say, if you haven't got anything of your own in your goal size - don't buy, but look, and make a promise to yourself to buy when it fits. That's good motivation.

    3 yrs ago when I first started on my journey I saw some jeans in next for a fiver a size 16 they aren't goal clothes but well on the way to goal clothes I'd say another 28lb and ill be in them hopefully.

    I wouldn't suggest people spend a fortune on a small size because as someone said your shape may well change x

    I dont have goal clothes, but I love the idea.
    The only reason I dont have them, is because I dont have a 'goal'. Well I do, but it's kinda 'I'll know I'm there when I get there' kinda thing. I just want to look, and more importantly feel good about myself. As I have never been slim, I dont know what weight/size this will be.
    Great idea though if you have set a goal - I think it'd keep you really motivated xxx

    My biggest goal when I started was to lose enough that I could fit into my wedding dress. I've had 3 children in a short space of time so thought that if I could get back to the size I was before I had them I would be happy even though at the time I thought I might be a bit optimistic. I'm pleased to say that 10 months later & my wedding dress doesn't fit me because it is now too big & I'm wearing clothes in a size that I probably wouldn't have been able to fit into since my teens & am determined to get to at least a 12. Like Jim of Troy I love desigual but I have always been too big to wear their range. This winter however I do plan to treat myself to one of their fabulous coats so long as I keep losing over the summer as my reward :D

    Im nearly at target & have found nothing more satisfying than going into a shop & trying on a size 10 dress that fits...........so my advice would be to wait til you're near/at target & then get your 'goal clothes', the feeling is wonderful!

    I have a wardrobe full of them! I have lost count of the amount of times I have bought something and thought 'I'll slim into it' and sadly i never do... Not this time though!!

    I have a pair of size 10 trousers that I bought 9 years ago from Topshop, I've only ever warn them a couple of times and my aim is to wear them in 40 weeks when we go on holiday, i want to wear them to the airport. The few times i did manage to fit into them i think i was the happiest i'd felt about myself ever so I know how proud I will be of myself when i achieve my goal as the trouser have been hanging up all these years and I've longed to be able to wear them again.
