    Im loving ww, seriously i am loving every minute of it.
    I dont feel deprived, hungry or depressed like I have on previous diets.
    I work in my local ASDA i started working there last July.
    When i was given my uniform my size 26 trousers didnt fit. I'd only ordered them because i was too embarrased to have my size specially made for me! i didnt really expect them to fit most of mine were a 28 to 30.
    I still tried them on though i couldnt get them half way up my legs!
    So I ended up wearing my comfortable size 28 evans trousers!
    I didnt start ww till the middle of Jan this year, but since then i've noticed such a difference in my clothes.
    The first time i put my combats on and they felt loose round the waist. I felt the diet must be starting to work!
    The belt round my jeans needed tightning. I felt exstatic!
    Now 2 months on if i dont wear a belt around my jeans they WILL full down, my evans work trousers have been safely tucked away for me to look at when i get to goal. They were hanging off me.
    The best achievement was trying my ASDA trousers on and being shocked that they would go up and do up. I was really uncomfortable but at least i could do them up.
    Now a few weeks on from then i wear these trousers with pride. They're no longer tight they do up easily and feel really comfy! Nearly a year ago when i started my job there would have been no way i'd ever have thought i'd get into these trousers. Now im longing for the day when i can order a size 24!
    Yesterday i went to George, they go up to a size 24 in there. It wont be long until i'll be able to buy some clothes from there...with a little staff discount...he he...
    I saw some jogging bottoms in there size 24 they had them in grey black and navy for only £3 a pair. Mum told me to get a pair that i'd soon be able to fit in them. When i got home i tried them on not thinking they'd fit but guess what??? They did they're not even tight. And yes i do know jogging bottoms are baggier etc etc but i was so chuffed.
    I joined curves gym about a month ago now. I went to evans and bought some size 28 bottoms for £14. They dont fit now. Im just pleased i dont have to be ripped off with over priced clothing anymore. £3. for a pair of joggers is nothing i could have bought 4 pairs for the price of the one at evans!
    The gym did my measurements a couple of days ago. They printed it all out for me and im so pleased i've lost 7 1/2 inches. I new i'd lost but the feeling of achievement makes me want to succeed even more.
    This morning was wi, I started at 20 stone 9, im now 18 stone 13. Going down into another stone bracket is great.
    I've always given up on diets before i started to get results.
    Now its a different story altogether. I've lost weight and inches, and i know now i wont give up!
    Gosh dont i go on and on.

    Isn't it fab? I too bought a suit for work in teh January sales and got home and found that I couldn't pull them over my thighs......
    I lost a little bit by myself and got them up but they were about 5" from doing up....
    Started CD on 24 Feb and on Wednesday 19 March, I wore them to work - everyone commented on how well i looked......

    I so hear you Laurie...... its a wonderful feeling to see your body changing shape to the one that you really want.....

    Power to you my friend.....

    Long may you continue

    Lots of love

    Thanks everyone this is the best forum ever!

    May I ask a question plz?

    I just dont want spend much money on clothes at the moment cos i see it as a waste of money... I know you can sell them on ebay later on but still dont see the point. Once i can fit in clothes from cheaper shops i wont mind. But at the mo its still Evans or Simply be. And they're so dear. What do other people do?

    Ive actually found Evans really really reasonable. Theyre doing a lot of tops for £5 or £7 and often do buy one get £X of a 2nd one.

    Ive bought loads of tshirts & things from them & theyve been so cheap I havent minded getting rid of them as I go down the sizes.

    Ive a stack of 26/28 which are too big... wonder if its worth Ebaying??

    Hi Laurie, you are doing so well, I think MK One is great for plus size clothes at a really reasonable price or even new looks plus size range is pretty nice, I get alot from those 2 shops.

    Firstly, well done you are doing brilliantly!!

    Re clothes I used to buy one pair of work trousers and 5 t shirts in each size and just keep washing and wearing. Wasn't very glamorous but did the job and didn't cost too much, £15 dotty peas trousers and £5 t shirts from M&S. Save those pennies for goal and then spend spend spend!!
