    to buy a pair of shorts..
    I reached for size 40 I recently started fitting in, my friend told me to try size 38 too..
    I took it off the hook, looked at it and told her even when I reach my goal I can't fit in these..
    She told me to try both, so I did..
    I was very very sure I am size 40, so tried it first and it was loose!!!!!
    The way I came out of the changing room made my friend laugh out loud:8855:
    ended up buying size 38, I am wearing them now:D
    Oh how good this feels..

    Very well done! you must be so happy.

    I do believe that fitting into size 30 waist skinny jeans will make me happier than any figure on the scales would - will have to wait and see!

    I had a similar happy experience to yours the other day - went to Forever 21 for the first time (it's only just opened at Westfield Stratford) and thought 'oh stupid skinny teenage girls shop - nothing will fit me'. Which was sort of true - the first size L skirt I tried on was too small.
    But I then proceeded to try on a dress in a medium - it looked loose everywhere I needed it to be and they only had an M size, no L. But it was too big! Faaaaaarrrrr too big. And eventually I walked out of there with the dress in a size EXTRA SMALL!!

    Granted it was mostly to do with the style of the dress - but still! I don't believe that in my entire life I have ever ever worn an extra small in anything. So I am chuffed :)

    Wore it out on my 1st wedding anniversary to go dancing and drinking cocktails and it made me very happy (though after said cocktails it may already be a little tight again)

    October, XS?? wow!
    Even if I was just skin and bones I wouldn't be able to fit in an M:eek:
    Maintainer, the goal weight in my mind was 68 to be honest but DD website calculated it to be 65 and I thought why not.. But I will see how I feel when I am 68 and might stop there. I am apple shaped, very wide chest and shoulders and all the weight was on my upper body.. still I have a big belly and my arms don't look good, I don't think 3 more kg will be enough.. sigh..
    sometimes I think I was happier when I didn't care, now I am more into details.. :rolleyes:

    Elida I think we're opposite in that respect - the goal weight in my mind was 63 but Dukan site obv thought that was unrealistic - probably accurately as i've never been there (or perhaps when I was about 13 years old!)

    As for the dress - it was completely down the style, I am absolutely not an XS. (the dress is non clingy fabric and only fitted at the waist - which is the only bit where my body goes in rather than out :) So you never know - but I no longer believe dress sizes mean all that much.

    And as for being unhappy with your shape - don't worry about that until you get to goal. I suspect that when we both get there enough flesh will have been stripped off us to allow a better look about where we need to tone up, and we will by then be motivated enough to do so. I know the only time I've lost weight properly before (a year ago I got to 69/70kg) it spurred me on at the time to work out specific problem areas at the gym or with a trainer, and when you're slimmer that's easier to do (as the results are more visible)
