Well done mum, I actually tried my wedding dress on the other day and it is two sizes too big, not bad considering I married 16 yrs. ago.

I think you should go and get yourself a size 12 dress to hang in the wardrobe. It is one of the tactics that I have used to help keep focus and it works for me.
I bought a size 16 leather jacket last year at the sales, at the time I would have been a size 22, I tried it on the other day and it won't be long before I can get the buttons done up. Pretty good considering when I got it I tried it on at home and then had to get hubby to almost peel it off me as I couldn't bend my arms and I didn't want to burst the stitching :oops: .

So in short I say go for it.

Well I'm happy to say that this Christmas I actually wore a bikini for the first time in years! Woo hoo!

Step one down. Step two is to look good in the bikini. Hopefully I'll achieve that by next Christmas. :lol:

If that was the pic you posted a while back EWQ, you already look fantastic in a bikini.

well bugger me, i had bought a pair of 3/4 jeans in november and to be able to wear them i had to do the zip up and tuck the button part in and have it undone.... i now have problems trying to keep the pants from falling off me, not even my ass will stop them from hittin the floor! wooohooo and thats just after losing 7kg's

Next aim is to fit into the dress i wore to my "motorama sales excellence awards night" beautiful long purple satin dress with heaps of beading, not that i have anywhere to wear it, but itd be nice. ooh and to wear my black zip up dress without tummy control underwear...

i was excited on friday, i now buy size 16 undies and 16dd bra's instead of 18 undies and 18d bra's, i just wish the rest of my clothes would be a size 16
