Last month l bought a dress for our staff Christmas night out and a dress and bolero jacket for New Year, size 8 (UK size 12). When l bought them l could zip the dresses up, but they were tight and l didn't like how l looked in them. I thought having them in my wardrobe would give me motivation to stay on track and it did. I tried them on and they now fit great. I've been carrying a picture of them in handbag and also put one up on the door into the kitchen and another on the fridge which has helped resist temptation.
