Default Getting into smaller clothes!!!

I've got an interview tomorrow. Last time I had one I couldn't wear my suit (size 18) as the trousers wouldn't get past the top of my legs- I'm wearing it this time!!!

I also managed to fit comfortably into a pair of size 18 jeans today for the first time in a loooong time, and a size 18 T-shirt in Evans was too big!!!

isn't it a nice feeling? during the january sales I tried on a pair of size 22 trousers and they were too tight!!

Congratulations! You'll be shopping for 16s before you know it!

They say to "reward yourself" at regular increments when losing weight ... but I have to say the biggest reward of all has been to try on all those old clothes and be able to wear them, look great in them, and drop off a big bag of 24s, 22s, and 20s at the Salvation Army!

We're size twins - both 18s right now. We'll be size twins in 16s or 14s this summer!

Well done!

Consider selling your larger clothes on eBay to make some money to get some nice new ones.
