I bought 3 tops and a pair of cut off trousers yesterday, all size 12. With the thought that they'd be a good incentive to slim into over the next month. After the demoralising morning I had with the scales, I was a bit wary about how I'd feel trying on clothes that were too small for me, but hoped that being just a cm or so off fitting into them would give me a boost.
Bit of a fabby NSV then, when they all fit easily, no tugging of waistband or squelching of flab required! Was tempted to take them back and get the size down, but have decided I deserve the "reward" of clothes that fit me now, as I've already hit the target of size 12 without really noticing!
