    Currently i'm a squeezed size 18. my friends son is being christened on 13th September. I'm hoping i will be able to fit comfortably into this size 16 dress (I think I might be pushing it :flirt2:).

    Anyway, I'm an hourglass shape (under the fat :D ) I like to think of myself as a type of nigella lawson - so think this style will be good.

    Anyway, just wanted to share !! now i just need to re-read the shoe thread of howdy's to establish if i need a new pair of shoes :rotflmao:.

    What a gorgeous dress...love the colour and the style...very nice indeed!

    I am sure, with your determination, you will do it! Gives you a goal and that makes all the difference...sometimes just having something helps us to focus even more!

    Look forward to hearing how you are getting on!

    Where did you get it by the way..it really is lovely and my type of dress too!

    THanks Scots.....ok, you got me - its from Next - (via ebay :flirt2: !!). I'm not spending a lot on clothes at the moment - don't see the point.

    Wearing a 99p pair of jeans at the moment - very comfy, and even better cos of the price !

    Caren.

    Predictable?

    I was once told by a friend that She used Sex to get what she wanted, and perhaps I should try the same.

    She clearly did not understand men.

    Hi Caren,
    fab dress, I believe you can do it, nice to have something to aim for. Perhaps a bit of toning exercise, you have a month and could possibly have a stone down by then. Wishing you all the best.

    Caren you have a month before the christening and should lose a stone+ in that time so the dress is definately doable.

    I love eBay and charity shops, most of my LT-journey wardrobe come from these places - bought a gorgeous Per Una skirt for work for £4 today!

    We ARE simple and predictable, I would not deny it, one task at atime, one thought at a time. Most of our Bad Press comes from "people" who try to complicate us by demanding or expecting more.

    (...for "people" I would may have suggested another word, but that may have been considered stereotypical or sexist....Lol)

    Sticking to the subject of Caren and her dress, I am sure you will be able to do it, it sounds like you have all the right reasons and the support from all of us here.

    Promise us a piccy of you on the the day.

    Bill
