    Here we are once again trying to get dressed for our bike clubs Christmas doo.

    Do I have anything festive to wear? Of course not. Havene't felt festive in about a hundred pounds. errrr...I mean years.

    Will the other wives? Of course they will. They are stick thin. :rolleyes: They'll be in their little strappy sparkly dresses or tops and I will be in my make-you-look-thinner (like heck) black jeans. lol

    All the men will comment on how nice they "clean up" and they will say hello to me. lol

    I REALLY HATE THIS. And I don't want to go. Hrumpfh.

    I want to go next year. Just not this year.

    Does anyone else feel like this ever? Or used to? Its just the worst.

    I am trying to look nice, and I get overheated, so by the time I have done my hair, makeup and get dressed, I have lost my hairstyle because I am too hot. URGH. I just feel awful about myself right now. I really really do.

    ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!!!!!

    I'm going to my Xmas Do tonight - In fact I'm typing in my outfit. However, I am nearer my goal, and 4 stone lighter than I was 3 months ago, so I am feeling fantastic. Got 12 jeans and 10 sparkly top and put make up on, hair decorations etc. I feel a million dollars.

    Although this probably doesn't help you right now, think about how you'll feel at next year's Xmas do! You'll outshine the lot of them. Chin up!

    What you have written was exactly how I was feeling this time last year. I would rather have been under a bus than out at a 'do' looking like Greenpeace had hauled me in from the whaling fleet. I started lighterlife in Jan this year and lost 4 1/2 stone in the 12 weeks, I didn't continue as I felt I had mastered myself and could go it alone. 8 months on, I'm 2lb heavier than when I finished LL, so I'm happy with that! But, what I really want to say is, I feel for you, I've been there and I know how awful it is to feel so uncomfortable, but you are going to do something about it and this time next year, I'm sure you will be writing on here encouraging someone else in the same situation. Have a good Christmas and look forward to the New Year You.

    Yep, me too! But now I'd like to go out more, once I buy myself some clothes that fit...
