My new dress size!

Hi!

Im really struggling on the clothes front! And cant wait to get new clothes - I havent bought any new clothes from last september 2007 - i did get my 2 dresses online recently though. So I am so looking forward to building up a new wardrobe of nice new slim clothes...

Before I started LT i used to look in my wardrobe and say... "ahhhhh nothing fits me!!!" cos all my clothes were too small for me :(

Now when I look in my wardrobe I say... "ahhhhh nothing fits me!!!" cos all my clothes were too big for me!!! :) lol

As I am going to be working hard in the gym this month and I got my final body wrap session this week also, and I got my last 12 pounds to loose to get me to my target - I really dont want to buy clothes cos i think i will probably drop a dress size by the end of this month - and would rather have my clothes all fitting me well rather than having loose trousers etc.

SO! I havent got a clue what size I am at the moment and decided to go to river island just to try some clothes on so I can figure out what size I am now and what size I am going to be by the end of the month...

Dum dum dummm...

I was size 12-14 trousers before LT and i was size 14-16 top.

I am currently (10 weeks later) a size 8 in trousers and size 10-12 top (still got big boobs).

So i cant fricking believe I will probably be a size 10 in tops and a size 6 in trousers and skirts! OMG! This is like unreal for me to think this. Blows my mind - I feel giddy - but I feel giddy most of the time - but like I really feel giddy!! :) lol

AND before any freaks out please remember by BMI is only going to be 21.5 when I get to goal so I am not over doing it - I am 5ft nothing. The guy who went shopping with me was a complete jerk about my weight and I just couldnt be bothered with his negative energy about LT. He really cant understand the whole diet and I have explained it to him upteen times??? I am not going to mention LT or my weight to him again ever. Men??? Who would have them??? This guy is only a mate - ffs - could very well soon be ex-mate though cos he is doing my loaf in. lol

Anyway as I am very happy about the fact of my dress size reduction and probable goal dress size that I had to share it with someone - Im afraid to tell anyone else - cos to be honest most EATERS dont get it now.

I feel like I am at the stage now where I have to always defend my decision to get to the BMI I want to be at. It really is quite annoying so I just going to say feck all to anyone from now on. Also I am going to call my chemist tomorrow and agree my target with him on the phone. I am happy to do TFR to I get to BMI 22 that gets me to around 8stone - I would just like to get to 7st 12 for the craic of it really - cos it sounds so much better and BMI 21.5 is hardly fricking anywhere near skinny ill looking. Think it is a pretty healthy BMI to get to and not unrealistic at all.

Sorry I have totally went off on one on this post - It is a mixture of complete happiness about my success on LT and then frustration at some peoples reaction to it all.

wow well done, i bet you look great! maybe try getting a skirt that fits on the waist and then after goal you can wear it on the hips? if its an a-line skirt style no one will notice, it will just be a tad longer.

just a thought as when i gained weight i was wearing a skirt that fit on my hips slightly higher on my waist! it worked for me. and no one noticed!!

depends on your hips though, i have not got huge boobs but got huge hips, even when skinny i struggle to get below a 10/12 as my hip bones are like razor blades sticking out when i'm slim.

sooo looking forward to having a waist again!

well dne julz, we'll have to arrange a meet somewhere before xmas so we can show off our new wardrobes!

HEY, thanks ms blonde! :) As I am so short though most skirts are already longer on me than on anyone else when i have them up at the waist... if i moved them done to the hips they would look way too long! Im only 5ft - like i tried on regular length jeans in River Island with my high heel boots and there was half a leg on the floor! lol eeek!

Its pretty amazing having a waist again - and you will get there too babe!

Having a small waist now compensates for my small height. When I was fat I felt short and dumpy - now I feel petite :)

ah yes i get that too, i'm 5'3" i can get away with skirts but trousers and jeans are a problem. try next petite range or ann brookes (in debenhams)

I always had petite for everything, then i had to choose 'fat person' clothes i'm looking forward to being petite again, its funny how a fat bum makes clothes ride up so much! and tops, always struggled with arm length when i was slim, now i need regular as my fat bulges make the item rise up!

when you are at target landsend do tailored trousers and hem them for free at your desired leg length (jeans too) they are in american sizes so check size guide first. go to Lands' End UK

i'm too slim for my evans' cords now :D:D:D:D very pleased about that!

Hey TFB thats amazing. Must be a great feeling and I am sure youwill look fab in all those new clothes you are going to buy (although you will be broke!!!) You should not defend your choice of when to stop and what BMI you are to anyone. You are clearly a v intelligent woman and would not do anything to harm your health, so just ignore anyone who tells you what to do.

So happy for you babe you deserve it xxx

Hey - people can really try to put you off cant they? So frustrating - this has happened me before and I have stopped without feeling I got to goal - this time nothing is stopping me.

Awesome changes in your body size babe! You must be buzzing! xox

Hey thanks daisy! You always leave me such lovely comments! :) And you are so right - I totally am focused on being the best weight for my height - I know what that is cos its my body and I have been 8stone before and I know it was when I looked and felt my best! I would never want to be unhealthy - ever. Cant wait to start shopping - my wardrobe is soooo outdated and big! Be nice to have slim trendy clothes! xox

Hi hun,

Wow what a buzz knowin you can get into little clothes, this next month is going to be ace for you, seein what you are finally goin to achieve. You are doin brill.

If its any consolation I know without a shadow of a doubt that when I get within a stone or probably more all this crap will start. I also know that if I can not eat for all the months thats gonna take then I'm strong enough to ignore the comments and of course so are you. Don't let anybody rain on ur parade (bein polite) u are doin brill an u will look fab at the weight u choose.

Still think you should buy an item that fits, even if it only fits for a month,cos ur worth it. Tara x

Hey.... Wonda - sounds like an interesting shopping trip :rolleyes: - I never take men with me, they're either moaning about hanging around or just huffing and puffing..... size 6 sounds scary to me but I understand you have a tiny frame - I bet I could get my arms all the way round you and back to me for a big weekend HUG !!. I'm sure we'd all love a trip to the Emerald Isle to help you shop for stuff xx:Dxx

Thanks - really appreciate that! Just think everyone should know me better enough to know that I wouldnt be so stupid to take it to an extreme!!!! lol Maybe its just the change is so dramatic that people cant get their head around it - I know my head still struggles with it sometimes - I can hardly believe it when I look in the mirror! lol xox
