    In my album is THE DRESS - it is a size 14 and i am currently a size 18. I [STRIKE]want to [/STRIKE] will! wear this dress for my daughter's 3rd b'day 1st July.

    I am a size 18. For me about 10lb is a dress size. I need to lose at least 20lb in 2 mths 3wks (arghhhh) - 11 wks ish. That is like 2lb a week OMG can i do it!

    I have a back up dress in a 16 in case but i still need to lose 10lb to get into that properly (although i can squeeze it on it is so tight it is about to burst lol)

    Will update and as soon as i can squeeze it on (even without zip) will put pics up. I will wear this dress it is just a case of when........................

    You can do it ~ it's a great incentive! I've a wedding to go on 18th April and I bought a dress awhile back a size smaller than my usual so it would give me the motivation to lose weight. It still feels a little tight but am hoping to lose 2lb before then. Your dress is gorgeous! xx

    thats a great idea, i've got a couple of things that i can't get into anymore, and a couple of things that my pal gave me that i can't fit into yet, so i should really look them out and even try them on every week to see if i'm getting that little bit further.

    i dont even think i can fit into all my holiday clothes just now, as i keep all my holiday clothes seperate and thats the only time i wear them, but when i went away at crimbo i couldn't take quite a few things with me cause they didn't fit. I've got 2 months, 2 weeks until Cuba, and i really need to fit into everything.

    Well done to you though, your doing so well, and YOU WILL look fabby in the dress for her birthday. xx

    I can't see the dress either (because I'm a newbie perhaps?!), but I wish you good vibes for achieving your goal! My daughter's birthday is also 1st July (she'll be 7)!

    That is a lovely dress Natalie. If you want it enough then you will no doubt do it! I'm about tp have a major clothing issue. The lowest size clothing I have is 16 and I'm just about out of them...ooohh no! It's great but at the same time not cos I'm going to have absolutely not one piece of clothing my size!!

    Size 16 - 2 asos dresses (beautiful!) and a black asos silky top, size 16 tesco dress (which actually fits but another few lb to feel comfy), Size 16 top from tesco

    Size 14 - Levi jeans BRAND NEW lol, 3 juicy couture tracksuits and skirt suit from juicy couture plus a skirt suit from river island (clue and i wore it when i was 13 lol)

    Size 12: A blue juicy couture tracksuit and a peach juicy skirt suit, about 5 juicy couture t shirts but they are large so 12-14......

    Size 10: A white dress with plaited neckline (some designer) from ebay ;)

    I love clothes too and have loads of really nice stuff that I'm considering just getting taken in. I am looking forward to buying 14's though, although it's gonna hurt my bank account :rolleyes: lol

    And I'm sure you won't be imagining size 14's for too much longer!:D
