    At the moment i weigh 17 stone. and i'm size 22. If i lose 4lbs a week until Christmas then I will be 14 stone (or there abouts). I started this diet at 21 stone and was a size 28.

    In all seriousness, what size do you think i will be at 14 stone??

    I have seen a dress i really want in river island and i just know that it's not gonna be available at xmas, so do i risk buying a size that i may be too big or even too small for, or go ahead and buy one??

    This is the dress is u can be bothered going through the rigmarole! lol

    click on 'women' then 'just arrived'. go to page 3, and it's the third dress from the left on the top row. xx

    So if you've gone down 3 dress sizes after losing 4 stone and reckon you'll lose another 3 stone by Christmas perhaps you're looking at about 2-3 more dress sizes by then which would take you to 16/18 but the problem is this is obviously all just guesswork and no one will really know until you get there babe.

    By the way, if it's the purple dress you're talking about it's hella pretty :) xx

    it is that dress yeah. i want a nice dress to go to my husband's xmas party in so i've been on the look out for the perfect one, and thats the first one i've REALLY liked. maybe i'll just have to resign myself to looking for one closer to the time and hope i find one i like just as much :confused:

    It all depends on your height & build hun.

    I think when I was 14 st I was a size 14/16 but then I'm only 5'3".

    Not much help - sorry. :) xxx

    Well depending on you financial situation you could always buy it in a size 16 or even a 14 and hope for the best, then if you can't quite get away with it in time for the party you put it away until it looks fabulous :) If not then looking closer to the time might be the better option.

    I know it sucks, I've refrained from buying any clothes since starting LT (except 2 tops which I bought in a 10 - motivation and wishful thinking I think lol) because I just have no idea what will fit when and I can't afford to waste money on clothes that I'll only wear for a few weeks :( xx

    maybe i should just wait until closer to the time and see what is around then, you normally get a flux of dresses around xmas time, i'm sure i'll find one that i love. and i guess it would be better for me to see the dress on when i'm at a size 16 or whatever, although i would have lost alot of weight, i will still be seen as a fat cow! LOL

    forgot to put why i say 16 cos i had one daughter shouting me and the other screaming. when i started lipotrim i was 13stone 6.5lb size 14 was too small for me and size 16 was bit to big for me i had to wear a belt i am 5"6 so i would say if i was 14 stone size 16 would have fitted me right. keep up the good work and i really hope your dress is the about when you get nearer to xmas. xx

    I'm 5'5" and weigh 12 stone 6lb and on Sunday I squeezed into an Evans size 14! However, to be comfortable I would say I am a 16/18. I am big boned though.

    Seriously, I would wait closer to the time hun.
