    This diet is saving me a fortune. If I go clothes shopping, I never try anything on, I buy an item that I 'think' will look lovely on me. Then I get home to try it on and I look like crap. And i never can be bothered to go back and try and find something else.

    So now, when I got into town, I window shop to see what I would like to wear when im at target. Haven't been in evans' since I started!

    Course I do wonder what people think of me browsing in miss selfridge.....but hey who cares!!

    :D

    Haha, I do exactly the same. I'm always browsing round River Island,Miss Selfridge and the like when I'm in the Trafford Centre. I'd never go near them before I started this because I'd just get upset. I'm saving a fortune on food and drink as well, I used to spend more than 36 quid a week just on alcohol :eek:

    Its really funny to be able to shop in shops other than Evans and Elvi etc and I still have to tell myself than I have every right being in those shops as I'm now a size 14!! Although I still dont feel that comfortable yet and often wonder if people are thinking "whats she doing in here?" When will it sink in? XX

    Totally agree with you there hun, we're saving a fortune, cos we're not doing any food shopping at all... And we've stopped going out for dinner and drinks every other night...

    So we're putting the money aside to buy new clothes with when we're at our target weight - I'm looking forward to the shopping spree when I can avoid the likes of Evans :)

    lol
    Im the same! I havent needed to buy any clothes since I started this diet because of the number of times I have gone shopping and bought things that dont fit me... so i now Im wearing them... but to be honest, Im kinda running out of those too..

    Ive been window shopping so much and making a mental note of EVERYTHING i will buy when I lose weight :)

    I'm also saving a fortune because I don't mooch round Asda and Tescos anymore. I always used to end up with some new itemof clothing in my trolley. Am buying more magazines though coz I like the diet inspiration stories!

    We're saving money too cos my hubby is doing the shopping whilst I'm at work and only picks up what is written on his list! It's great. No extras and certainly no more rubbish. I must have been spending so much on rubbish through the week. Just another benefit of LT.

    If I do go shopping I also do it a lot quicker now. The fresh bread is hard but the cooked chicken section is really hard. Lately I've really been feeling tempted by smells of foods. Last night was quite hard. It's not that I wanted to eat, I think it was more a case of wanting some different tastes. Luckily hubby was really supportive and I didn't give in.

    Like I said it wasn't wanting to eat just wanting a change I think. Ok again today but can't wait to have lost all this weight and get back to different tastes.

    I still shop for the family and often buy them little treats!!! I also bake for them more so although I'm saving on all the chocolate I used to buy for me I'm feeding them up!!!!

    I've loved the sales this year and picked up some real bargains. I was in New Look yesterday - and nowhere near their Inspire range which was the only range I used to fit into!!!! - and I found a black skirt in a size 10 and thought, it'll never fit me, I've never been a 12 and their sizes are so small that I still buy their t-shirts in a 14 or 16. However it was just £1 so I decided to try it on - it was a bit loose on me!!!! I could have cried with happiness - in fact the assistant was very sweet and let me gabble on about it! I bought the skirt!!!!!
