    Me to assistant in the changing rooms: "Excuse me, do you have these in an eight?"

    First time ever!!!!!

    And then I went round telling everyone that obviously Next's sizing was wrong and they were too generous. I'm so angry with myself - why did I have to belittle what is for me a huge achievement? Does anyone else do this?

    Not a size 8, but I did buy a size 18 trousers last night that look fab. Considering I was about a 24-26 back in October, I'm pretty pleased with myself :D

    And for a Gok Wan style boost, I'm even wearing a pair of "magic pants" under them to help smooth a few bumps. I'm feeling pretty good right now...

    Congrats everyone its brilliant! Harrie - I think we all belittle our success because we either are angry we didn't do it sooner or we've always had low self esteem, it's time to boost it - congratluations on your success xxx

    Congrats! I did the same when I got in to a 12 - oh they are big 12's I refuse to accept that I am a 12 despite the fact that 14's hang of me and I can wear 12's in work trouser and Jeans!

    that's how I see it too - I still can't quite believe I can fit into a size 12, keep thinking that it must be just the shops where I've tried stuff on - M&S and Oasis, I'm nervous to go to shops like Zara where I've not bought anything for at least 5 years... tomorrow I'm going to the new Westfield shopping centre with my mum so I'm going to be brave and try lots of stuff on in lots of shops!!!
