    I have had a couple of rough weeks with my health and was feeling really down. However since the weekend things have got a lot better so I popped into town to do some messages.

    I popped into fenwicks and was looking at a lovely maxi dress but the only size left was a 16 :( I thought I would risk buying it, to try and get into for a party I have at the end of June so I treated myself.

    I got it home and IT FITS perfectly !!!!!! :D:D:D

    I started sw in November weighing almost 20 1/2 stone and a size 26 and just 25 weeks later and 4 1/2 stone lighter I can pick a size 16 off the peg in Fenwicks :eek::eek: I havent been able to do that for 10 years :eek:

    I cant tell you how excited I am, its definitely inspired me to lose the other 5 1/2- 6 stone :D:D

    I cant thank all of you enough on here you have really inspired me through the hard times xxxxxxx thank you

    We do need a piccie of the dress please!!!

    Congrats on getting into a 16 - i think it is one of those sizes that most stores go up to, so its a definate milestone....most shops now do a size 16!

    Oh and remember Marilyn Monroe was a size 16 - gorgeous gorgeous woman that she was! xxx

    That's really exciting, I bet you look lovely in it. Enjoy wearing it :)

    I'm so short maxi dresses are too long for me but I'd really love to wear one.
