    Hi all,
    I have a wedding the 9th October and with all the end of season sales on at the mo I was hoping to pick up a bargain and avoid spending a fortune.
    I am on my 3rd week of LLT and have lost 13lbs so far, when I started I was in a size 22, I'll be in week 9 when the wedding comes aroung. If I see a bargain this weekend what size should I buy?
    I know its a bit of a daft question as its anyones guess what size I could be! Any advice would be great and hopefully save me a few quid!

    Hi, I'm in the same boat. I've got a wedding the following week. I'm going to hold off, probably until the week before lol. I plan to hit the charity shops...no point in spending lots of money when we are losing so much :)

    thanks for the advice, maybe the charity shop is the way to go, don't want to spend a fortune on something that will be too big on me at Christmas. Thanks again

    yep and we all know you generally lose one stone per month - so you could work it out pretty closely. :)

    The idea of losing a size per stone is terrifying to me - if that's the case with six stone to lose I'd end up a size 8 and still only be half a point away from the "overweight" category.

    I can't imagine that would suit me, nor can I even imagine ever being that tiny! I've got big bones, big hips and big boobs - I'd look like glamour model skeletor! :bolt:

    Surely it's not the same for everyone?

    Like all parts of this diet, of course it won;t be exactly the same per person - but that is kind of a rough generalised calculation.

    For example, I lost 10 stone and went from a size 26/28 to a 10/12 and the rarest of rare 8s - (hey - rare counts! They were an 8!! :giggle;).

    My whole life I always said I could never be that small too, and that I had big bones.

    When I was done, I was shocked to discover I do not have big bones, in all reality my frame is considered small/medium!!!

    So never say never - and you will know when a weight suits you and what you are happy with. :)

    I still have a pair of trousers that I wore when I got to 147lbs when I was 23 yrs old, once upon a time. That lasted about 6 months but I look at those trousers now and they are tiny, might cover one thigh now...I did stay at 11 stone for about 2 years though and that was managable. So underneath all this is a size 12 but probably not a size 10.

    Holy grail of a size 16 for me. Maybe a size 14 if I am feeling thin motivated. I want those Nigella and Marilyn curves. xx

    Onwards x
