    I can't quite beleive it :eek:
    Further to my thread at the weekend about buying a size 14 jacket in primark; my sister gave me a size 12 River Island Top and a size 12 Hennes skirt and they fit perfectly.

    I am in total shock!
    I can't ever remember buying size 12. I don't know what to do with myself now. I never thought I would get this far. I wanted to get to a comfortable size 10 and I am nearly there, I am just flabbergasted.

    alibongo that is fantastic. And I know what you mean about being in total shock. I actually had it when I went shopping for work trousers yesterday (I had NONE at all and couldn't bear wearing a drss/skirt and tights again so had to spend money on trousers that won't fit for long).

    Enjoy the feeling and remember you won't be bigger than that ever again as long as you remain focused.

    I am totally amazed.
    I think I will have to go and try some clothes on tomorrow, I am quite excited. I am not going to buy anything, although I was thinking of getting a nice pair of jeans in a size 10.
    I have a few other bits my sister gave me that also fit, so I have something nice to wear that fits when I go out on Saturday.

    Thank you everybody for your lovely comments.

    I still couldn't beleive it so I have been out this afternoon trying on, and it is true!! I think it is totally bonkers, but I have got a pair of size 12 combats from New look, a size 12 top from next and a pair of size 12 jeans from Next, I also got the 10s in the same jeans, which are now my guide jeans. They go on my legs but I can't do them up.
    It doesn't seem real, I don't think I have got that small in my mind yet.
    I actually had a few tears in the changing room as I just couldn't beleive I got them on and they were comfy sitting down and everything.
    I feel quite emotional about it.

    Silly moo!!
