    Ive just been on my lunch break to buy an England top!

    I have been to all the sports shops and supermarkets and found nothing which i like.

    So on my way back i walked passed republic. I dont know if they dont do a size 16 or if they never have them but i can never buy clothes in there!!

    So anyway i saw these 2 gorgeous England tops and set myself up for disappointment taking 2 size 14s into the changing room.

    I think you know whats coming next...

    not only did the 14 fit me in the t-shirt (very comfortably!!) but i had to get a size 12 in the tank top!!!

    I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO pleased with myself :) I havent been clothes shopping for so long as im so fed up of things looking gorgeous on models and hangers and like an orange in a sock on me lol

    ROLL ON PAY DAY!!! lol i can now fit into the items of clothing i wore when i was 10 years old!!!! Time for a new wardrobe me thinks

    That is just fantastic, mate! What a wonderful surprise- I bet it takes ages to sink in that you are a 12/14- you will still grab the 16s automatically and get this lovely feeling all over again when you realise!!!

    oh, and I LOVE Republic- lovely clothes

    You blow away you should be proud of yourself ! We don't treasure our achievements enough and I think this is one reason we start to put the weight back on. I know that when I reach goal (been there many times)I start picking on different aspects of body imperfections e.g. my boobs are still too big etc instead of being grateful for all the pluses that being normal weight brings.
    Hoping this time round will be different.
    Lippy

    Thank you all so much!!

    My OH was really impressed when i got home, until it occured to him that i had a cheeky smile on my face and wanted money haha!!

    This is so true Lippy!! We dont celebrate our achievements so much, ive already started about 'once i get to target...' for me its my boobs aswell but because they're small not big lol

    I think we should definitely be happy about the things we can change - and have.
