    Hello!

    Well- with only 2.5lb to go until target I am getting VERY impatient- so much so that the other night I bought my 'target dress'.

    I hadn't meant to, but saw it in a window and just KNEW it was 'the one'. I tried it on and felt utterly fantasic in it so bought it.

    I know it is a bit previous but it is my husbands birthday on Thursday and we are going out for a meal with family- do I wear the dress or wait until I get to the big T??? (bearing in mind I am currently as excited as a puppy)

    p.s.- that isn't me in the dress btw

    Ooooh, it is stunning. I wouldn't wear it - wait until T-DAY and then go out again!

    It's a gorgeous dress. xx

    You may unofficially be at target by Thursday given how close you are.

    I'd probably wear it but then I am an impatient b*gger. :D

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the dress - Do you mind if I ask where its from???

    I think that you are going to look absolutly stunning in it, that's if you wear it on Thursday or when you hit target!

    When is WI?? Do you know if its likely that you have got to target? By that I mean is a 2/5 loss doable for you or do you have smaller losses??

    If you wear it, then I guess you could go shopping again & get another dress then hubby can take you out to celebrate you getting to target??

    Ok so what would you be wearing for OH birthday if you hadn't bought THE dress?

    Personally I'd save it for when you reach target as that is what you bought it for. Just imagine how special you will feel, you've just reached target, your wearing THE dress you will look & feel a million dollars.

    SAVE IT for when you reach target, it will be worth it:D

    It's a Ted Baker dress from Hurley

    No chance of me hitting target by Thursday- my WI was this morning and I am VERY lucky if I lose 1lb a week at this stage

    Maybe this is a sign- MY birthday is in 3 weeks so it may be a better idea to save it for mine (and possibly be at target by then??????)- hate to put the pressure on myself though!!

    Aaargh- I hate clothing decisions- lol

    Thanks for all your advice, girlies

    Chicaloca- check out my albums for some before and during photos- not nosey at all xxxx

    WOWZER!!!

    I LOVE the dress and am thrilled to see you are ever closer to the big T!!

    I personally think you should save it for T and yes, in 3 weeks you could be wearing for your b-day :D.

    Wear something equally fabulous for hubbys birthday as you deserve it.

    (Am so excited for you being so close :bliss::party0011:!!!!!)

    I was going to say wear it, but then read it's your birthday in 3 weeks. I would wait until you reach target, I am sure you can do it by your birthday.

    Good Luck and enjoy Thursday night x
