    i am thinking of changing it to 10 stone 6 rather then 10 stone as im in a 10-12 tops which was what i always wanted and my bottom half i am in 14s but they are too big but i wear a belt as not buying size 12 jeans yet and this one pair of jeans i love so much i dont care if they too big i wont throw my o neils out no matter what. i think if i get down to 10stone it is going to be too much and my wedding stuff wont fit me i feel so much more comfi in my size now and after the wedding i might decide to go to 10 stone and ask for clothes for xmas, what do you all think??? help needed

    I'm in the same sort of position hun! I too am in size 12 tops and 14 bottoms but large with a belt (12 is a liitle too snug for my liking just now) I really don't know what to just now. I am going to go to my original target of 10st 7lbs and then see how I feel. I am really scared of my face getting any thinner though!! It has got really thin and I really don't want it to start looking gaunt. I thin i am prbably just shocking mysel with the new me more than anything as I am not used to it!! Keep going until you are comfy hun....you'll know when enough is enough :D

    will my slimming world women let me stop when i am happy or should i talk to her on tuesday and say i want to change it for now and explain my position, i am glad i am not the only one going throught the same position since before i started this diet i said i want to get to a 12 and feel happy and thought 10 stone would do that but now we are both at the size and still wanting to go further i think if i didnt have my wedding dress i would just carry on but everyone says i look great and the children do and say i dont need to lose more

    Speak to her on Tuesday hun, and of course she'll let you stop when you are happy. I really must point out that you people shoudl always stop when the are happy and not what modern day society dictates as the "norm". You're sizes, and mine are a great size to be!! Celebrate it chick :D

    I'm sure you can change your goal weight... It just means that if you go 3lb either way, outside of that, you'll start paying again (as I understand it).

    It's your body and your happiness is the real goal! If you are content with your weight you're allowed to stop.

    Congratulations you have done so well.

    I think you set your goal weight at what ever you feel happy and comfortable with.

    Wishing you well. X

    Just reading you original post i think your own 'plan' is good. and feelin good in your own skin is what matters.. for me i wanted to loose 5 stone but have changed to 4.5 as i am also happy now, i plan to call traget and enjoy sts for a while and make a descion later if i feel i want to lose more.. i think to feel comofrtable in ur own skin on ur wedding day is what matters most. Do what u feel best with xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    I think it's all about how you feel in your own skin. Nothing to do with numbers, weights, measurements, sizes. If you can walk around everyday and think, I like this then that's there is all there is to it!

    One or two of the members have changed their goal weights at class. One before she got there as she felt she was slim enough, and one felt she'd like another half stone off. It's up to you to call when you think you're at a comfortable weight. You'll probably lose more in the few weeks before the wedding anyway!

    How far off 10 stone 6 are you now? Perhaps you could get to that weight, maintain for a while and see how you feel.

    It's difficult to know before you start losing weight what weight will suit you best. Only when you get to the right size do you know when you are happy with what you see.

    Do you want to be a size 12 bride or a size 10? It sounds as if you are pretty happy with where you've got to. So, in that case, go for it and change your target. Well done on doing so well!! xx
