    OK... Sorry... I just had to tell someone and my LLC has kinda deserted me (we were supposed to have a session today but I turned up and nobody was there and when I foned her she said it was cancelled and she had text me... but I had no text!!)

    ANYWAY... Because of the lack of session today... and despite binge-eating for the past 8 days..(its ok, im back on track now). I went Xmas sale shopping today and decided I needed some new jeans because mine keep falling down...

    Before LL I owned a pair of size 28 *oh the shame* jeans... I also had a few size 26's... but all my 24s were too tight...

    The 28s and 26s have been too big for a few weeks now, and my 24s that I wore shopping today were hanging off me...

    ANYWAY sorry im rambling... I bought a pair of 'skinny' jeans in a size 22 tall (im 6ft 2...hehe so I need tall stuff!) today.......... its so exciting........ and they fit me......

    FIRST TIME IVE EVER SHOPPED IN DOROTHY PERKINS (Evans will go out of business)

    Yes I know they are still big... but its such a change in just 6 weeks... wow :rolleyes::cool:

    You go girl. :happy036:

    There is a certain pleasure to be had in your breeks having to be hauld up every few steps...certainly makse the old dears sitting on the shopping centre benches day when you do the 'hands full of Christmas shopping bags, desperately trying to keep yer kegs up by clenching yer butt cheeks' walk.
    :chores016:
    That'll keep you motivated. Well done!

    oh you will do that easily :D

    Don't forget to buy cheap as you shrink and save the pennies for when you reach your 'normal' size! (Unless it's for shoes ):innocent0002:

    Well done!!! What a good feeling. :D

    Marks and Sparks do really nifty jeans for around £12 - £14 in their basic/outstanding value/I don't really know the name of it range. They are very good quality - not that that will probably matter much as you'll be dropping sizes so quickly, lol! I also love Primark - can't beat it.

    Well done great aint it. I was a very tight fitting 22 (bulging all over) and wore a size 20 yesterday. I felt a millions dollars and I strutted around as if I was an American size 0.

    Doesnt it give you some great enthusiam when you go down a size.

    As a 32-34 myself (having been in denial for a yr or so now thinking i am a size 30 - as i didnt want to be over 30) being a 28 would even be a godsend for me at the moment!

    CONGRATULATIONS! i cant wait to be 'wear' you are!!

    If it's any encouragement to people, I started in August as a 22 and I'm currently in (donated) 14s. Nothing in the wardrobe left to wear! But I'm not buying anything yet...

    So that's 4 sizes in 4 months. I love this programme. It just does what it says on the tin.

    its great!!! Good luck to everyone (i forgot all ur names!!)

    Its quite funny fitting into size 22s... I was walking around today in my new jeans thinking 'oh yes I look great' ..... (which I did... haha) but then in comparison, people were probably thinking 'look at her, strutting around in her jeans like shes a size 6' lol!!

    And to the lady who (yes another one whose name I forgot!) is a size 32/34... good luck, I was in denial too, but ive come to terms with it! And irrelvant of what size you are/were, that wedding dress looks fab :) xx

    well despite having real non man type flu I recovered suitably to brave the shops. I am now in size 16's! and I didnt have to go into Evans - Yay!

    Bought a rain coat and parka (cheap and cheerful as I was swimming in my coat) a pair of jeans and a cardi from New Look :D

    Isn't it great? No disrespect to Evans - I'm glad it's there - but it's wonderful to have so much choice! Having a terrible job reining myself in from buying loads in the sales. (Repeat ad lib: I WILL NOT spend until I'm at goal and have my girly day having my colours done)
