    Just had to share this with you all....

    After years of being very limited with where I can shop for clothes (mainly just Evans) I happened to go into Next today to buy my husband something. I walked through the ladies dept and saw a top I really liked. Thought 'that will never fit' but took a size 22 to the changing room anyway really believing that i'd just end up depressing myself when it wouldn't fit.
    I put it on and when I saw that it did in fact fit me I just burst into tears!!!! I still can't believe it now!! I've only lost 29lbs but have gone from a size 28 to a 22 and am thrilled!!!
    It must be at least 12 years since i've been able to buy clothes from Next.
    God help my bank balance now.....I ended up spending £300 today and have a wardrobe stuffed with lovely clothes.......makes it all worthwhile and has soo spurred me on to continue!!!!!!!!!

    Wow, I'm so excited for you!! I know that exact same feeling! What do you mean, only 29lb?!! That's a substantial amount of weight to lose by anyones' standards! I know you've got some way to go, but you're making massive progress, just as today showed!! There's nothing like a bit of a spree when you actually like the clothes you're trying on!! I bet it was also a great motivator for you to carry on and have that same feeling over and over again as you go down the sizes!! I can completely relate to you about the cost element! I'm finding myself rekindling my passion for clothes and it's getting more and more expensive the better I feel about myself, so watch out!!!XXXX

    Mel thats fantastic news well done, you should be so proud of your 29lbs - what do you mean ONLY 29lbs, its an amazing loss!!

    I can't imagine how happy you felt in Next, I see clothes in there that I could only dream of fitting in to but with each pound that comes off I'm closer to that dream. I'm giving myself £10 for each pound I lose so that when I'm done I'll have a huge bundle of notes to go and completely spoil myself :p

    Well done you!!

    I read your post and it made me smile, word for word this is the same thing that happened to me 4 weeks ago. I have lost 1 stone 4 pounds in 7 weeks on SW. I was wearing size 22-24 tps and size 20 bottoms. I was struggling to buy clothes and found evans overpriced and frumpy. So i was resorting to Simply Be catalogue.

    My collegue dragged me to next on our lunch break. She is a size 16 and always looks stunning. We call her Gok Wan!!

    I said next don't do big sizes, god i was shocked I found some items in size 22 also. I walked around and collected nothing. I said no way will any of this fit. Next thing my very own Gok had her arms full and ordered me into the fitting room. She collected size 18-20's and said get them on.

    I was over the moon. I am now wearing size 20 tops (big boobs) and size 18 pants. I felt like a new woman. My husband was delighted and even gave me the VISA, I used to hate shopping, I enjoy it now. Nice to find there are people like me out there. I am lucky to have my Gok!!

    Wow! Well done Hun, its a wonderful feeling isnt it?

    One thing that Im doing to save on pennies is to only buy clothes that I need rather than a huge new wardrobe as I know that Im not going to be in it for very long. I have even got some lovely things in a charity shop!
    My Hubby is moaning about the clothes that I have gone through already! Ok, so I have gone from a 28/30 to a 12-14!! But the clothes!!! Eeek!!!

    Well done Mrs V. Can't wait to be a 12. I also buy clothes from charity shops, have found some real bargains. I also love eBay too. Have sold a lot of my too big clothes to buy some that actually fit!

    Thats a fantastic loss.

    And what do you mean only 29lbs, i mean that's just under a stone less than my 4 years old weight that you have lost. It's blooming brilliant.
