    12! Yes, 12! ha ha

    A couple of weeks ago I bought a pair of jeans in a size 12, they were a tad snug so I didn't wear them.

    Last week I went to buy a lil black dress for work, I tried on the 14 and it looked naff so "had" to buy the 12. I did the whole "it must be big for it's size" blah blah.

    Thursday I bought a lovely cardy from Next - had to get the 12.

    I struggled slightly with the size 12 thing as I almost felt a fraud (!) it was an acceptance thing which I am over now!

    Today I bought a dress and two tops, all from different shops - all in a size 12!

    I just keep spending money but that is ok now as I am staying here in the 12s :)

    Wow wow wow

    SIZE 12 :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    I think for many people Size 12 is the huge marker of being normal range. It seems to reflect the start of the normal BMI in most people too; which is a fantastic feeling!
