    I find that buying a smaller size really helps me to carry on.
    I started off in tight 16's.
    Then i bought the (famous) size 14's that im now wearing- getting into them finally was such a fab feeling!
    I v bought s size 12 dress for a ball that im going to the beginning of May.
    Even if your not in it for the summer- you will be in it!
    and if im not in my dress by may- it will be worn!
    I would buy it- maybe look on ebay or something and get one a bit cheaper.
    or just sod it and treat urself!
    i think its a really good way of reaching ur goals- but everyone uses different methods!

    Oooooh. Have seen very nice potential dress for wedding on there; all flowery and flouncy and lovely. Might go and try on on this afternoon and then order it off the web! (But then there's the whole which size to go for issue...)

    Claire, buy it! But I know what you mean; I can't remember ever being this small (can remember being an 18 in sixth form) so imagining a slim me is fairly difficult!

    Oohhh Claire... I have this skirt and it is LOVELY! It is a little above the knee so not too short - you will be fine.

    Definitely go for the size 12, and look forward to swooshing around in it all summer

    Never say Never!!!! You go and buy it - it'll give you a visual goal to achieve. I'll bet you a caramel shake and two thai chilli soups that you'll be in it by Summer.

    Claire, I love the skirt, its trendy, if ur worried about whether it will look too short against your fantastic height, just make sure u wear flat shoes. I might get one myself, hehehe, no honestly i really like it and love the indigo denim colour!:)

    Go for it Claire whats £30 you derserve, if you dont get in it you could sell it on ebay and you never know some peep migh pay £60 for it.:D, so its a win win situation.

    The only thing that worries me is size 12 and 6' 2", I am 5' 3" and was hoping to be a 12, perhaps I have worked it out wrong cause I am useless at maths.

    claire, if it is any help, I was size 18-20 when I started on 1 Nov and was comfy size 12 by the end of Jan. If you stick to the program there is no reason why you shouldn't be in a 12 for summer.
    Buy and try it on every week, it will soon fit and will keep you going until it does cos each week it will get closer to fitting. I did the same with a pair of size 10 jeans, to start with it was silly, I couldn't even get them up my legs, but it wasn't long before the started getting further and further on until one day they just went on and did up.

    BUY IT!
