    Hi, thought it would be a laugh if we listed the things we do to pretend we're thin when we're not.

    Tie a cardi round your waist to cover your bum.

    Eat in secret.

    Sit in corners of cafe's.

    Cut out the size label.

    Sit on the edge of seats and pull our tops down smooth over our tums.

    come on join in, a secret shared is a laugh for us all xx

    When guests come to stay in my house (particularly mother in law!) I peel the labels of the clothes hangers in the guests wardrobe!

    All this sounds quite eating disordered to me. It's a bit worrying.

    I constantly wear BLACK. or tracksuit bottoms because they stretch and you can get lower sizes than you really are!

    always crossed my arms over my stomach to try to hide the bulge (who was I kidding).. I have to learn how to sit all over again - so I can show off my flat tummy!

    hide the sweet wrAPPERS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BIN, NEVER A GOOD IDEA TO PUT THEM IN THE BOTTOM AS THEY END UP ON THE TOP WHEN THE BIN GETS EMPTIED!

    SIT WITH A CUSHION INFRONT OF YOU.

    WEAR BAGGY CLOTHES IN THE BELIEF THEY ACTUALLY MAKE YOU LOOK THINNER!

    Change the little hanger labels in shops so it looks like you are carrying around two sizes smaller than you are. Then put them on your hangers at home, so should friends look in your wardrobe, they are foxed as well!

    That's a fantastic idea - I shall do that from now on. Size 8 :rolleyes:

    I'm definitely a label-cutter-outer, especially jackets and cardigans that you take off when out.

    Black or darker colours actually make us look BIGGER as the block of dense colour solidifies the quantity beneath.

    Better to wear camel, stone, khaki - strange but true!

    Sitting with a cushion in front of me is a must, buying mens tracksuits because then i can get a small/medium!lol...

    Hiding all the naughty things under magazines in the supermarket and arranging them on the conveyor belt so they are mostly hidden, then hiding the food at home and eating nothing in front of people to sneak away and eat my forbidden things!

    And yes...it does seem strange when i write that down and think what i actually do!
