    I cant stop buying things! I think its due to the weight I've lost I'm getting a wee bit addicted to nice things fitting me :p

    But it has to stop, my credit card is cowering in the corner after buying a load of St Tropez stuff yesterday (there was an offer on in Boots!).

    I've just been looking at the New Look website and theres loadsa lovely clothes I want...

    And dont even get me started on ebay!

    congrats on losses, I know how you feel - i have also gone mad lately, but have started to hit the charity shops now!

    I dont see the point in spending loads till i have hit target, cause i'll only have to buy again later!

    its understandable why you're doing it.. why dont you sit down and work out an amount per month to spend, and make sure you dont go over it.. or save so many pounds a month and save up for something you really want..

    I've done the same, I see clothes I like and think "Ooh I can wear that now!" and buy it!

    I know, its just odd to walk into a shop and know that their clothes will fit nicely rather than just fit. If that makes sense. I'm gonna try to stick with ebay til I get to my ultimate target (obviously will have to buy a few new things!) as long as the p&p charges are reasonable!

    It is wonderful to celebrate how great we look.

    My tip - just go and try stuff on regularly and note how completely gorgeous you look. Give yourself marks out of 10 for the outfits and then each week/fortnight/month - treat yourself to something.

    The buzz for me is seeing myself in the nice new clothes - not needing to have them.

    I am with another poster on the charity shops front. Got a fantastic Hobbs dress and jacket for £45 last week...looks like it has never been worn and it was a size 12 - yeeha
