    I'm only a month in to my diet and there's a long way to go.
    I'm about a 26 at the moment.
    My question is - do I trust myself and buy this size 16 skirt I've seen online which I really love and put it away ready for when I get down to that size or is that too much of counting chickens before they are hatched?
    DO I buy or not?

    It just seems so far away - I have never been down to that size since I was a teenager.
    I AM determined to do it this time...

    Go for it. I've put on 3 1/2 stone since the begining of may and have an entire wardrobe of clothes that don't fit. I have to believe i will get back into them.

    Get the skirt and know that it will fit you in the not too distant future.

    Looking at your losses already I wouldn't hesitate in saying "buy it"!

    You are doing so well Alexice - you will be able to look at the skirt as a motivator and before you know it, you will be wearing it, beautifully co-ordinated with other lovely items in your wardrobe.
    Go for it x

    I just tried to buy it - but the shops site (river Island) won't accept my Spanish Visa card. A few shops don't but most do.
    lol It's frustrating having decided to get it and now I will have to wait until I can sort it out tomorrow. I have mailed them. Most places who can't put a card through their system are happy to do it over the phone and if not then I shall phone mum and use hers!

    No Kellymundy - can't find it on ebay. I shall have another look later though. lol I am determined to have it.
    I shall sort the card stuff out with the place tomorrow. I am planning on picking it up from my mum's when I go over at the beginning of December then hanging it up on the wall in my bedroom here as inspiration for what I will look like next summer!

    YES DO IT PLEASE!!!!!!! I bought a size 16 top from next about 2 years ago (yep...) and vowed that one day I would get into it. After many diet failures, I found cd in April again and this weekend I wore my 2 year old (but barnd new - tags and all) size 16 top! And I felt amazing. Loads of people commented!!!!
