It’s a week until Christmas Day, all your Christmas shopping is done AND wrapped and sitting neatly under your tree. Your Christmas food shopping is all pre-ordered from Marks and...

“Thank you so so much for helping me turn my life around I soooo needed this!”
“I am starting my weekend off on a massive high girls and thought I would share.
So was in town today and thought I’ll just have a wee look in the shops. Shopping has always been a nightmare for me, never finding anything that can fit me, and usually I couldn’t go to your typical shop such as River Island for example, and would typically have to find something “plus size”. As a result I have hated shopping and would only go if I really really needed something!
Anyway, today I took a shot, and tried on a pair of jeans. I have not fitted into a pair of River Island jeans since I was 19/20 – they were really popular in my uni days and used to wear them everyday- so this was a huge deal. I am massively pleased to announce that not only did I get a pair to fit but their size 18 was too big. I actually couldn’t believe it!! I wanted to fling the changing room door open n hug someone but as I was on my own I came out and phoned Michael straight away and he was as ecstatic as I was.
I know this sounds dead stupid, but you have no idea how good it felt going into an ‘age appropriate’ shop for me and easily finding something to fit me. I think I used to be delusional. Thinking things would fit me when in reality I hadn’t faced facts that I was actually much bigger than I was and feeling totally miserable for it.
I am feeling super awesome and totally empowered to keep going on this amazing journey!!!! Thank you so so much for helping me turn my life around I soooo needed this!”
