    How dis you manage it? ATM all I wear is leggings and long cardis, probs got 3 outfits and that's it lol
    I really want to find the real me when I get to goal, but I can't! I don't have a style ATM and want to be trendy for first time ever lol but also bit classy?!
    How dis you find your style and what is your style? I look at things still and think god you have to be a size 6 to wear that lol

    The other thing you could do.. do you have a friend who's style you really admire? Ask them to bring you shopping/trying on (you don't have to buy) and to choose the clothes?

    it is really hard hun , I have always shopped in Evans and Simply Be as these were the shops that sold the clothes that fit me .. and i chose whatever i thought would make me less huge !!

    Now I am able to shop anywhere and wear what I want .. its strange . I had no idea where to start when I first got to a size I was happy with ... its just a case of looking at everything and if you like something , try it on !!!! I found myself in a shop called Apricot and I love nearly every item of clothing in there so I now know what i like and am buying bits and bobs as and when I have a little money . I still buy stuff in charity shops at the moment as I am still loosing so refuse to spend a fortune on clothes that will be too big in a few weeks .. but you will find a style it just takes a while :)

    im an ex-fashion student & even i find it difficult to style myself lol.. i would totally love to be Gok'd! :D i just think its a case of having a major girly shopping day (or weekend!) & take along friends u know will be brutally honest.. others tend to see what we can't see for ourselves.

    i think your age defines your style. i used to live in jeans and gap fleeces with trainers. i'm now more leggings, boots, long jumpers that go almost to my knees. i've just bought a couple of pairs of jeans but i'm struggling to know what to put with it so have looked at combos in next and bought a couple of gypsy style tops with corsages with them (same top 2 different colours).

    i can shop in any 'normal' shop now and am a 12/14 but even i find it had. i tend to go looking online or go into a shop and see what's what. see if i like anything, try it on and see how it fits. etc.

    I love fashion and had always found it quite easy to style myself somehow.. Just before I started the diet I was a large size 18/ almost a 20 and was struggling (for the first time ever) to find clothes that were my style to fit me. I think thats why i started!! I've found ASOS are good because they go up to a 20 in their normal range then have a plus size range which is items from the normal range but larger. I hate these plus size stores that thing cos you are big you should wear horrible baggy clothes! Surely they would make clothes that weren't like a potato sack because that just makes you look bigger!
    I can't wait till I'm skinnier though because there's so much I want to wear but I can't yet fit in places like Topshop :(
    I almost went to uni to do fashion styling and would love to actually take the plunge and do it, because I've studied fashion before but I think all the girls will be so skinny and pretty I would stick out like a sore thumb!

    I wear allsorts. Usually nice dresses and tights with boots and a cardigan (I have 38 dresses in my wardrobe)...

    totally untrue hun! i was a size 20/22 when i did my fashion degree - and there were a fair few girls bigger. but maybe u should set it as one of ur goals.. UCAS opens again in september, by which time u could be exactly where u want to be ;) u should go for it! new size, new direction! Xx

    Aww thanks you're right :) I'm planning on doing an access to art & design course next year (got to save up the money so can't go this year!) then hopefully going to uni. By then I should be slim!
