    Hi Laura,

    No I haven't bought anything unless its a tent!!! I have so much weight to lose that just to get into the clothes I have will do for me at the moment.

    Good Luck with the size 12, I know you will do it..

    Hey, I'm the same. My OH doesn't know my weight :( I was a size 14 before having my son, he's one now. I'm a size 16-18 now, and would looooove to be a size 12 as I was when we started seeing each other 5years ago. I asked this question when I tried ww 2years ago, and have thought about buying something in a 12 :) I think it's a good idea. Xx

    well my daughter is now 7 and my son 5, and my weight as just gone rediculous!! i was a size 20 when i started sw 5 week ago, now im a comfy 18(which is gr8 for me)so i have a loooongway to go, but just seeing the weight coming off is such a gr8 feeling for me and now i actually feel that maybe SOMEDAY i may be able to reach my target, i think what i aught to do, is just buy something in a 16 and once i fit into that, then a 14 untill i reach my ultimate goal, wot u think???

    Hi Laura,

    I DIDN'T do that, because I'm sure that I would have chosen something totally inappropriate! I had 4 and a 1/2 stone to lose (just the last 2 with SW), and I was so used to looking for big baggy cover-ups, that even the thought of anything figure hugging didn't cross my mind.

    What I DID do though was treat myself to something "new" regularly from charity shops as I diminished - that was enough of a boost for me!

    Still use charity shops a lot now, and STILL find myself drawn to their Extra Large or Plus Size rails, which ALWAYS have much nicer stuff on them now than when I HAD to buy from them...

    Oh that's a good idea!! More excuse to go shopping (which I'm not a fan of much anymore, I feel everything looks silly on me). I know someone who got back in their pre-pregnancy jeans in 6days after the birth! That just can't be normal, or healthy for that matter! :( x

    Oh posts crossed then! Charity shops can have some good stuff, but there's none round where I live i'd go to :| Might do some shopping online and buy myself something size 14 :) (...and that means have to buy shoes too... and a handbag!) X

    Charity shops rule Roz, I love them! New stuff every week.....

    As for the original post - I didn't buy anything to fit into but I did have clothes which I had outgrown and for some reason I hadn't parted with (most of it ended up in charity bags as I'd convinced myself I would never be slim again and I was made to be that weight....) and it was so rewarding getting back into them.

    There are people at my class though who purposely buy something in the size down as it is their motivation for losing weight. I say, if it's going to work for you then you do it girl!

    hi,
    i have never done that i have bags of clothes i have never fitted in and still have them in the hope of getting there.

    when you buy your outfit dont buy shoes and bag to go with them make them as little treats as you go to keep you interested, say but the bag when you can nearly get the dress on and the shoes when you can, may keep you more motivated on the way

    Hi Byron,

    I agree with all about the charity shops, always worth a rummage hun! :D

    I have acrually always bought myself one pair of trousers (usually jeans) in a size too small to aim towards. I do not get them out all of the time to try on, as that would depress me lol. I try them on after about 6 weeks and get a great suprise. It works for me, but may not for others I suppose.

    Well done on your loss so far. :D
