    Hello... I thought I'd take my mind of the other post I've just done about wanting a nutella sandwich!!!

    Today I went shopping to get my new jeans... I have been buying 2 pairs from the same shop, every time I drop a dress size (well normally, I get them before I reach, so they are ready!)

    ANYWAY! On Boxing Day, I bought some size 22 tall jeans from Dorothy Perkins (I'm 6ft 2! Tall is needed!) - at the time, they were a sqweeeze to get into... but I battled it and they were comfortable a few days later :)

    Then on to size 20... same idea, I got them before they would fit, but I think it was about 2/3 weeks ago that I got into them and they were comfy.... Over the past few days they have been falling down a bit after wearing them a few hours (they are nice and snug after just being washed!)

    So today... ho-hum... I went and bought my two pairs of size 18s... (tall... dorothy perkins!)

    and well blow me down........ I can do them up :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

    Now... for those of u with a little bit of weight to lose... "Size 18?!" I hear u say!! But bloody hell... I was a size 26/28 on November 14th :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

    (I can't wear them just yet... but I reckon another week and they will be there)

    This is amazin... but scary... is this for real :confused::rolleyes::cool:;):D:eek::eek:

    Yep Claire that's how it works -- that's me and the getting into a size 14 skirt last year when doing LL (I'd gone from a 24/26). Got it on and the diet went to pot.

    Now is the time that you really do need to stay strong, you can do this - you're a strong, determined and focussed young lady - don't let it sabotage you to ruining the brilliant work you've done so far.

    And I'm still green with envy at you being 1 foot taller than me :D

    Hehe... ;) its only a foot! ... actually thats quite alot!! But who cares, we'll both be so slim that we won't look any different!!

    ... As for the sabotaging... I'm struggling to understand it ... because I didn't get um on and then think "I need to eat, I don't wanna be that size" - so what on earth? :eek:

    I don't understand it either Claire - I've told my LLC about this and she said that we'll work through it ... so hopefully soon I will get a better understanding.

    It's amazing though how something good can knock you for 6 like that - I wouldn't have thought it could happen.
