Anyone else not able to get yer head around it all? it's probably cuz i have been so big so years i just can't get over the fact im now a 'normal' size.

Ordered this dress from kays the other day in a 14 ....

sat here in it now and am :( i have to send it back as i have room to move and in 6 weeks for my holiday it will be too big!!

I feel a little :( cuz i just cant get used to this 'normal' clothes size stuff. i have no idea what size i am and it's been years since i have been in a dress! let alone a size 14! but i guess .. bring on the size 12!!!!!!!!!!!! :D sorry to be bragging about it again but no one is home to tell! lol :giggle:

its a good thing that your sending it back ...what would you rather a 14 or a 12???

Im a 14 and there aint nothing wrong with that but if you have got to a size 12 thats an AMAZING achievement.

I still can't get my head around looking in the mirror and seeing me but in a much slimmer version. It's really weird. I even went in to the changiong rooms at Next the other day as they have the mirrors set up so that you can see your front and a rear view. In the past, standing there in just my bra and pants and looking in both mirrors was stomach turningly disgusting, however now it's just someone elses bum staring back at me. Don't think I'll ever get used to this. I also keep taking size 18 in to the changing room with me, even though I know they're going to be too big! :eek:

yeah i am pleased i am sending it back just i really cant get my head around being in 'normal' size clothes! im delighted with a 14 fitting, a 14 is great seeing as i started around the 20's/22's.

i wanted to get to a 14 bottom and 12 top for my holiday, looks like im guna make it! lol

Awww i used to hate changing rooms too, thats probably one of the reasons i hate shopping - cuz i had to try it on and look at myself but now look at us lou! i think it will take a long time for our brains to catch up with our body and actually recognise that we are smaller than we were!

Good for you Tanya.

I started about the same size as you, 20/22 and am now in a comfy 14. My jeans from DP are a 14 and starting to get loose! Can't believe it but like it a lot.

I can't believe it's my reflection looking back at me most of the time too, so long I was so big and now this slimmer person is looking back at me. This is what I've wanted to be for such a long time and am thrilled to be the size I am already. I still give people so much room when walking past them cos I think I take up a lot more room than I actually do. Like you said, our brains really do need to catch up with the rest of us.

I think for my hols I will be mainly in 14s but maybe a few 12s slipping in there too.

Woohoo us!!!

Shopping..what's that?

I too hate clothes shopping..and THOSE mirrors eeeek!! I still have a way to go before I am going to hit the shops again, but I have put that down as one of my goals when I lose 2 stone.
My hubby has always wanted me to wear a dress, but naaa. Its the 'ol XXXL trackies etc.
Time for a change..innit?? :copon:

Here's hoping.

Like Candlewix, my hubby can't wait to see me in dresses again. I have a lovely one for tomorrow night cos we're off to a wedding evening do. I also have about 4 for holiday too. Me in a dress, don't think I've worn one since we got married 7 years ago!!

The shocking thing is, I actually think I look quite nice in the dresses too!! Never thought I would think that!

I love clothes shopping now, got a few dresses which i would have not gone for before.
Also buying bras, never been able to buy fancy ones before, I am always looking.
Have to stop buying at moment and wait till had boob reduction.
I like now going into little boutiques noing I could fit into clothes, I don`t buy to expensive.

Fabulous news Summergurl. I was totally bombed last night as I bought 2 size 14 full length dresses, one in Primark and one in Wallis in Romford ....Too late to try either on.....WELL The Wallis one MUST be a size 12!!! And the Primark one JUST fits my friend who is a size 10 !!!!!!! GRRRRRRRRRRR!!!

My size 18 jeans are starting to get a little loose on me but I don't think I'll be in "normal" size clothes for a fair few weeks yet. I'm hoping it's soon as I've got a dress I'm itching to get into. Well done you though Summer! That's fab you're sending the 14 back and getting a smaller size. :D:D:D
