    Hi all

    now i am feeling a tad bit sorry for myself :rolleyes:

    I know i have done fantastically well, (i keep telling myself this!) so i went shopping for some 3/4 length trousers so i can go cycling. All i asked is that they were a size 16. could i get any??????

    NO. it doesnt help that my whole wardrobe of size 18 and 20 doesnt fit me and i have had to sew up pretty much everything to stop them from falling around my ankles, oh no, to go into a shop and try on 16's and not be able to get them over my ar*e, well i am like i said feeling a tad sorry for myself. :cry:

    just thought i'd share, incase any of you are in the same boat and are feeling deflated - coz my OH says 'it's not you, its the darn shops that have it wrong'!!! lol.

    oh well, i will give it another couple of weeks and give it another go.

    sorry for the rant, but i do feel better now!

    ta for listening xxx

    Awww I know how you feel, I tried a size 14 jeans on in Tesco and they were too big, so grabbed a size 12 on my way out, so excited that I was a 12 at last and they were too tight.... I kept them anyway and 2 weeks down the line they fit much better.... never know what size to buy without trying them on. Have also found when I was a size 20 you could never get a size 20 in the shops, always sold out, now that I am a size 12/14, they seem to be the ones sold out....
    Persevere and in a few weeks the ones that dont fit will be too big and you will be glad you didn't buy them.

    Izzy I was nearly in tears last night because of my hips. Went shopping to get a work skirt and a dress for the weekend for my birthday.
    Found out I am into size 14 dresses. Thought yay that's great. Size 14 skirts too, but only if they are floaty types because my hips are about an 18 still!!!! :(:(:(
    So no shift dresses for me and even tesco's 16 trousers were too tight. I hate shopping

    Izzy go try some other shops.
    I'm the same greeneyes, Tesco 22's are too big and 20's are still too small grrrr!
    Watergirl, i sympathis about the hips, but they WILL eventauuly catch up.
    Maybe it's just Tesco's? :rolleyes:

    Oh I totally know that feeling! I got big fat hippo hips which are a couple of sizes bigger than the rest of me and shrinking at a much slower pace so I'm not impressed! I have a size 20 waist, size 18 bust, but hips and a tummy that stop that!

    Thanks Vickie (binned the FF idea lol). Yes, maybe it is. If you want to feel better about yourself go to Sainsburys. I got a skirt from there that was an 18 and I kid you not it was more like a 24.
    So I got a 14 (this is when I was an 18) and it was miles too big still.

    Glad it's not just me Caroline. Keep thinking when I am slim I'll have a lovely curve from my waist to my hips, instead of a ledge!! :)

    I so know about this! I swear all sizes are different in the shops. I thought when i got to this weight, I would just be able to walk in to a shop and buy anything I wanted. NOOOOOOOOOOOO. I still find myself stressing in the changing rooms. Some shops I feel great and others put me right back where I started. Anyway sorry for the rant but I went looking for hen night dress today and last weekend and couldn't find anything. I look like a bag lady in all my work clothes as they don't fit properly (but it makes me feel good just knowing they are too big).

    oh I agree about Tesco sizes too- definitely weird sizes.

    That's what annoying me Aloize - feeling like a bag lady. My 18 trousers that I only bought a few weeks ago are hanging, but I can't find other trousers that fit.

    I also don't want to spend money when I'll have to buy something else in no time at all. I can't afford it!

    It's funny because having a shop make you feel bigger does set you back. My BF last night said - why not just get in an 18 and I almost screamed:

    "because I've done this bloody diet and worked hard to not have to buy size 18's anymore"

    I think I was in one of my CD rages/moods lol

    It'll happen so quickly Zoe if you stick at it.
    I'm at the in-betweeny stage too, my future MiL even offered me the money for new jeans LMAO.
    I think I'm gonna drop into Sainsburys tomorrow ;)
