    Some of you might remember, not long ago I purchased some size 18 trousers (have three pairs now) down from a 22/24...

    Anyway yesterday had the jeans on and noticed they were bagging at the waist, I was a bit cross really as thought they must have relaxed too much (cheap) Anyway..........

    Just now, i was desperate for a wee (sorry tmi) Had been on phone trying to say goodnight, then had to dash!

    I flew into the bathroom and slipped my trousers down without undoing buttons and zip... then realised these were the fitted 18's i bought recently!!!

    Now I can't get into 16's! It is a step too far.... But I feel so good now.. knowing that in such a short time My clothes around my waist have loosened a fair bit... I am so excited by this journey and all the sadness and upset I have felt the last few days, has now just evaporated!

    :)

    Caroline- yes I have lost the 22lb since April 2nd
    hopeicandothis - the 16's don't fit yet! But the 18 trousers are defintiely loose enough to slip down without opening button and zip...
    Lexie - If I could get into size 16's in about 2 weeks which would be about 7lb's I would be deliriously happy :) It's funny as I have stopped seeing any changes now when I look in the mirror, but I know I am losing inches.... I think it is coming off my bottom half more than my top half.
    Curly - I think someone 'up there' knew I needed a 'lift' yesterday!
    Eye on the prize - Thankyou :)

    Going from a 22/24 to an 18 in 4 weeks is amazing, you should be very proud of yourself!! Has given me hope that's for sure :)

    Maybe my size 16-18 by the middle of June goal isn't all that unrealistic as I was beginning to think it was! I'm in a great mood today diet wise, feeling very motivated and excited by it, just tired from lack of sleep last night! Thanks for the very uplifting post tilly :)

    Well done. Small moments like those make you smile. I remember needing a brown chunky waist belt and when I went into Evans and picked up the medium it was too big, tried the small and that was even too big then it hit me that I have become too small for Evans belts. Small things like that make the tough moments easier to handle.

    I'm so jealous!!!! (kidding, well done!!!)

    I have lost 36 lbs since 1st April (so rougly same as you) and I've only gone from a size 30/32 to a loose 28 - still it's all going in the right direction. Maybe I've not gone down as many sizes because I'm a lot bigger that you?!?!?

    Again, congrats and keep going!!

    Thanks....
    If i'm not mistaken I think I read on a thread recently that there is more difference inch wise between the larger sizes than the smaller ones?
    Not sure if thats the case, I can't find the post now, but think it might have been Lexie??
