    Allbeit not today but havent really had the chance to post since.

    I went and did the food shop on Friday evening and didnt get home til gone 11pm!!!

    Anyway.... I went into Dunnes (a bit like Asda with food and clothes) and picked up a few bits ofschool uniform for the kids. My skinny daughter was looking at clothes so I took a peek at what I might fit into in 3 weeks for my hols. I had seen a lovely dress weeks ago but I wasnt buying it in a size 16.. In the middle of the shop they had a rack of jeans all reduced between €5 & €7.. All size 12's would you have it... I was gutted... they were lovely and so cheap. I have promised myself I wont buy anything until the week before the holiday and besides, a size 12 wont fit yet. My daughter persuaded me to try them on anyway which I was a bit concerned about. I mean if they were way too tight then I would be so deflated and de-motivated. In the end curiosity got the better of me..... I tried them on..

    OMGG they fitted and well at that!!! They are lovely and I feel so great its unreal. Total motivation to carry on until my hols!!!

    I know Dunnes can be generous in their sizing but we moved to Ireland 7 years ago and have never been able to fit into any of their size 12's since then!!

    Dunnes aren't generous in their sizing- try a 'next' size 12 and you'll see what I mean!!!
    That happened me in Oasis a few weeks back- I was trying on dresses in 16's (they are small fitting! LOL!) and the 14 fitted perfectly! But it didn't suit me so I didn't take it. Out of curiousity I tried on some jeans in next and the 12's fitted perfectly- so I hit Ebay when I got home and bought 4 pairs for 99p each! LOL! My dunnes 12's are still a little tight though? But they're low rise boyfriend ones so I'm making a bit of an allowance! (they were €8 in the sale rack too!)

    Way to go!!!

    brilliant - it#'s great to get these extra boosts as well as the weekly weight loss!

    I went shopping on Saturday and bought 2 new dresses from Monsoon for the upcoming hen weekend I have in a fortnight. both size 18 (no size 18s in there fitted me a fortnight ago!!) and a size 18 mac. I will be posting photos soon :)
