    We were out this afternoon buying a couple of pressies for my son (it's his birthday on Monday) and quite by chance came across a couple of tops in a normal shop which actually fit me well. So I bought them. I can't remember the last time I made an impulse clothes purchase like that, it just wasn't possible because I couldn't buy from anywhere other than e.g. High & Mighty.

    So, showing off a bit, here's a pic. Ignore the mess lol

    Well done Jim. You are looking great! I looked at clothes yesterday but didn't really know where to start and somehow ended up looking at shoes.

    Thanks everyone, some nice comments there :D A couple of months ago I'd never have even bothered looking but there they were. Scary thing is I'm just over halfway, there's still loads to come off so god knows what I'll be buying in a couple of months! I'll deffo need a new wardrobe though.

    Warning: CD is bad for your bank balance lol

    I said I wasn't going to go and buy anything until I got down to goal. But most of my clothes are hanging off me, it's ridiculous. I've made seven new holes in my belt, all in the right direction this time lol so I've had to splurge on a couple of things as a stop-gap!

    Wow Jim! I was looking at your other photos and you have done so well!!!

    Being halfway is hard as you know you will be slimmer but your clothes look ridiculous as they are too big! A few new shirts & trousers won't hurt will they :)

    PS looking good!!! xx

    Haha yeah that's true, I've got a couple of T-shirts that are absolutely massive now, like tents. But luckily I found a T-shirt, a long-sleeved T-shirt and a casual shirt in a storage box in the loft when I was up there a couple of days ago. They'd been put there because they'd only been worn a couple of times and had become too small. Strange because all my other stuff I'd chucked out, and I had some really nice Ralph Lauren shirts and rugby tops which would have been ideal right now :(

    Oh and that's something, getting into the loft was a doddle! I struggled like mad to get in there before, pulling my weight up through the small hatch. Straight up there now! :p
