    I really dont want to by another pair yet.

    I hate going into the fat shops :mad:
    These trousers are a huge size 24, and I dont want to buy until im size 20, so I think Il buy some pins as they are starting to fall down :):D.

    Does a loss of 1 stone = to 1 size?

    Thanks

    I don't know about sizes.. but well done so far!!

    Maybe we should start a clothes swapping on here, I'm sure there must be a full spectrum of sizes no-one needs anymore!!!

    Love

    I did the same thing as well. Did not buy till I lost two sizes at least. As for the weight loss and size proportion. It did not work that way for me.

    I've been using safety pins too, tried using a belt but that didn't work and although my Dad has kindly offered me the use of a pair of braces, I had to decline - Not sure that's the look for me. :D
    No idea about sizes though, sorry.

    now that's a great idea, why didn't I think of that. I have gone down 3 sizes but luckily had a pair of jeans 1 size smaller than I was wearing but even they are like clown's trousers now. off to get some safety pins.

    oh and yes, I tend to find 1 stone=1size for bottoms anyway, my boobs tend to take 2 stones to drop a size.

    When I had lost half a stone I cleared out my wardrobe and draws and put all the clothes of 24 and above in the attics, that is the first time I have ever done that when starting a diet, so I reckon I was serious this time, now I have been CDing for over 6 weeks.

    We have an M&Co here in our town and I work opposite, they have just finished their sales and before they did I went in there and bought 2 tops one an 18 and another 18/20, then I went into our seconds shop and bought a pair of 20 trousers.

    My work wardrobe is really small so I am having to wash and wear, but I am blowed if I am going to buy any more clothes until I have to.

    My modus operandi now is to wait until I have lost another 1.5 stone and then perhaps start looking on the sales rails for 16's, and do the same with then with the above clothes that I did with my 24's and aboves.

    I have found my shape has changed so much since I was last this weight. When I was 15st for the first time I was a size 20, everything has gone south so much that at 15st I was still a 22-24.

    you are not the only ones! i am DESPERATE for a new pair of work trousers. mine are in danger of falling off! And they look awful...like clowns trousers...not at all flattering! but blow me if i can find any new trousers that fit properly! either too baggy or too tight on the general posterior area!!...not a good look...especially if i bend down and the stitching decides to give way!

    This thread was wrote for me today i think lol,

    All day my work colleagues have been laughing at me because i keep pulling my trousers up. They have even become too long for me so they are starting to trail on the floor. I dont want to buy myself some new trousers yet so i will have to invest in a good belt x

    Well, I have given all my 18+ clothes to charity...I have a few bits that fit now in size 14 and a couple of small 16s and there is no way in hell I am buying anymore!! Apart from the fact that I am flat broke, I need to keep my lack of wearable clothes as an incentive to keep going at CD!!

    I think ASDA and Matalan (not the hardest wearing of clothes sometimes) trousers are around £6 per pair... But if they do in the between sizes worth it.... and then there is their £4 jeans ;) I think that is my plan of action once I get on it if I find I have nothing to wear, but I think the bottom of my wardrobe has got 8,10,12 and 14's, so I think bra's and knickers will be my major expenses... (unless I go knickerless :rolleyes:)
