    Well folks, I have spent most of the day in my room sorting lng overdue piles of this that and everything. I was meant to spend the day with the inlaws but pops got a cold/flu, so they cancelled. So I decided it was fate, I was meant to do the mindless chore I have been putting off fopr weeks and weeks!

    SInce I started LL last year, I started buying smaller clothes straight away - and tucked them away - I had a system.

    I still had several items in my crates. ANd I had given up on most of them. I figured I was to optomistic i choosing 10s.

    I had bought a little manadrin neck top ins a size 10 - very fitted. And I really liked it - but it was soooo tight, I figured it would never work. I was gutted, so figured maybe if I was creative and moved all the buttons and added a little panel if necesarry I might be able to wear it later by making it a bit bigger..

    Well - I don;t need ot do that. It FITS!!!! :bliss: :D

    I was very surprised! So I tried all the other that were left behind p and they are all now hanging up in my wardorbe!!!!

    What a great surprsie! And it now means I can clear my room of these bins - and finally be DONE with the wardrobe. Yippee!!!
    I am pooped!!

    I went for a 6 mile walk, came in and got stuck in and haven't stopped. I;ve been on my feet since 10am and I am knackered, but so very happy and content.

    :) :) :)

    I also found, under my bed in a deep dark corner, a pant suit. It was a size 26/28. I put it on. It was visually difficult to comprehend if I am honest.

    SB - I tried your one legged thing. Oh - My - GOD. I must get a pic too. I also found some size 24 jeans.

    I must say though, the jeans made me cry. They were a size 24. They were what I always thought were my 'skinny' jeans. The times I was able to wear them, I always felt pretty good.

    How could I!!??? You could park a bus in the arse.

    It made me really tearful to see what in my mind was "good" - what I had accepted and gotten used to and felt was as good as I ever would get. It was really somthing!

    What a day. What a diet! WHat a YEAR!!!!!

    <contented sigh>

    I am going to have a nice cuppa and deservedly chill out now.

    I just wanted to share. Its been awhile since I had a size change!!! (Though I think I will still me mainly 12's, it felt amazing to get into a 10 - comfortably.

    Have a good nite all!!

    I was gonna say earlier in another thread that you look a size 10 or smaller in your photo...very trim indeed! You must have a lot of lean mass, way to go!

    THank youeveryone!!! I was really chuffed!! To say the least!

    PB - I have NEVER been a size 10! Not as an adult!! :D :D :D SHot right through that I'm afraid - but there at last!

    Nex and Daisy - thanks for that! ! I still don;t see myself as trim - not completely yet - the old head games and all..but its very reassuring that others do. :)

    Nex - unfortunately I have a lot of loose skin - but for the first time in my life I can actually feel a wall of muscle under it all, and I "feel" lean in attitude and movement, etc.,, if that makes sense! Dman skin though, distracts from it all :( Really hoping the skin shrinks back during the next 8 or 10 months. :)

    Thanks everyone for your comments!! :) :)

    Considering how excited I was to get into a size 18 earlier today, I can only imagine how excitable you got for a size 10!
    Well done honey!

    I look forward to seeing the pics of you in that mandarin top!

    As I was posting my post there was a Google ad at the bottom of the page for a clothing company Justforcurves.com - womens clothes sizes 16-36 (US). You sure dont need them now!!!

    Fabulous BL!

    Totally understand you about the plus size jeans on a thin day - it's amazing how one's "acceptable" moves up the sizes as one gets bigger; I guess for me LL has to be the end to that, and you are such an inspiration for me.
