    I am now officially "NORMAL" - I have booked a photoshoot and makeover for half term - it doubles up as a treat for me and a christmas present for my parents (who keep begging for a skinny pic [​IMG] ) The down side was that I needed four outfits to be photographed in - having lost two sizes since Aug I was a bit stuck - so I went on a shopping spree today and had a flash of inspiration - I booked a personal shopper - something I could never ever have done before - I had to say what size I was, that would have been the first hurdle, second being they probably wouldn't have had much to fit me let alone look good!!!
    She went off and brought me a selection of outfits - in twelves on top an 14 on the bottom (if they made a 13 that'd be better!!!) Everything fit or was tooo big - I even fit in a stunning size 12 jacket by Coast - one of those teeeny tiny shops!!! [​IMG]
    If you need a celebratory spending spree, i would recommend it - it was free in Debenham's and you got a coffee, and an hour or so with a shopper who was a bit like Trinny and Susannah - only more pleasant and swore less (I know I was on Great British Body!!!)
    A great way to celebrate success!!

    Well done on achieving 'normal' hun. :D

    My OH has said he will treat me to a personal shopping experience as soon as I'm happy with my weight. I am so looking forward to being advised what best suits my body etc. Can't wait to replace the contents of my wardrobe with nice size 12's.

    Oooo, well done. I love clothes and can't wait to be able to shop in 'normal' places. I went down to just over 13 stones a couple of years ago on CD and it was great to walk into Next and buy a size 16 (which was the smallest I had been for years). Although I think Evans have got a bit trendier I still find myself wearing clothes that fit rather than what I would really like to wear.

    I think some photos of you in your new clothes are in order on here!
    Don't be shy!!!!!!!!! :gimi::gimi::gimi::gimi:

    you just need to resize them Dogtanion. if you put them in paint, then go onto stretch/skew in one of the menus, you can choose to make them 75% of the original size or even smaller if you like x
