I currently have 2 pairs of jeans - my fav's which have a hole in the inner thigh from my bloody legs rubbing together :(
And another pair which frankly are falling off my arse at the moment cos my belly isnt as big as it was !:)
I really dont want to buy anything new just yet as its still early days - For you ladies who have lost a fair amount, when did you go smaller clothes shopping?

I bought new clothes once I reached size 14 I think, I lost nearly 5 stone on Cambridge Diet last year, unfortunately have put back on a stone so am trying to lose it using SW and a bit extra besides, but I started buying clothes when I could buy them in a size 14 or when my trousers were blatantly falling down.... lol Tops I wasn't so bothered about...

I buy new clothes when I can take off my trousers without undoing them!!
Always find that buying clothes that fit gives my confidence an enourmous boost, as you always look better in something which fits well.
I was lucky that I had a range of clothes in smaller sizes in the loft, but I do also love 2nd hand clothes shopping - you can get some absolute bargains!!!

I didn't buy new clothes until I was approaching target and my old clothes were falling off.
I donated all my "fat" clothes to the charity shop so I don't have them to fall back on.
My advice would be to buy the basics in the size you are now and then hang on until you are where you want to be.

When I can get my trousers on and off with out unfastening them, then it's time to have a rummage in the loft. I have an array of sizes up there :eek:

Tops I'm not too bothered by though. I usually only stop wearing something if someone makes a comment.

Not sure what size you are but this for any1 that reads..
new look do jeans that quite stretch and very comfortable.

8-18 - £10
18-24 - £12

there leg sizes are 28"-34" so great for little people too (im 5ft 2 and hav sall legs)

I have a prize pair of true religion jeans which my other half bought me last weekend which were stupid amounts of money...I can get them on and do them up but the muffin top is still to much to wear them...so they are my goal jeans.
Up until now I have just gone and bought cheap ones from tescos for £8 a pair which have done me just fine!
I have also now got rid of most of my big clothes just so I cant slip back into bad habits!

I have been buying the odd thing before it actually fits me usually in sales I started my diet at a size 16-18 and I picked up a pair of jeans in a 14 and a 12 for fiver ages ago I now wear the 14s and the 12 is not too far off :)
Great incentives and each time I try them on I say to myself nearly there keep going you will get there soon.

Ive also had a few shocks bought some size 12 jeggings to slim in to and when they arrived (bought them online) they fit! :)
Leggings are always good because whatever size they say they will usually still fit one size up or down :)
