    Hi Guys-had a great day. Its my birthday tomorrow so my mum came down today to help me find a new raincoat for going hillwalking in. We went to the local outlet centre, and had a fab time trying things on- got my coat which is a size 16-18! Also got a lovely cotton shirt in size 16!! And my first ever speedo swimming costume in a 44 instead of the biggest one they had in Markies that I usually get at this time of year. And new bra in size "ahem" (you don't think I'm going to tell you that do you!) So my sizes are all over the place depending on the shop, cos I'm still a size 20 jeans in M&S- but what the heck, size doesn't matter, if it fits I'll wear it!

    Wowee I am so chuffed. And I have lost 4lbs since last WI, so back on track after my holiday sins.

    I love this diet, and love you all for supporting me, and I pretty much love myself right now too!!

    Kx (loved up!)

    I am glad to hear you are back on track and you are having a good loss.

    I agree we all get hung up on clothes sizes but at the end of the day we should just buy what fits and looks nice on us.

    That said I bought x2 pairs linen trousers for my holiday in august (smaller of course) but unsure which size to go for, or if should just take them back.

    I know they won't be there come August!

    Hi Soonbe- I have set myself a target clothes size- size 14 top, there is no way that my chesticles will ever fit in a 12- cos I saw a shirt I loved for £4 in M&S outlet, and they only had a 14 left- so I bought it. I know it was dirt cheap, so not much loss if I never get in it, but I gave it to my OH with a note saying that I would fit into it by the end of my LL journey. So why don't you set yourself a target for the size of trousers you are going to be and I bet my short that you will fit into your chosen size by August!

    Yes that' a good idea.

    There is still that element when I picked up some size 14 and then looked at the size 12 that I am kidding myself (just like all the other times I have bought clothes only for them to sit in the wardrobe with tags on).

    To be honest they have a draw string anyway so wonder if should go for the 14, but unsure if selling self short!!!!!

    Only £8 and if did nt fit this holiday, would by the next.

    MMMMM? :blahblah:
