    now got a major incentive

    Oh no! Sarolium, take them back. Even if you do lose weight you'll need a little extra room for wineing and dining. Believe me I know. Lost 2 stone a few years ago and bought some lovely new clothes for our first cruise. Alas, none of them fit me now. Be warned cruising definitely shrinks your clothes.:D

      I agree with Marie, take them back or they will end up in the wardrobe and never see the light of day again - you Know it makes sense. you can always tighten the belt if ever they do get to big.

          I still can't get into a M&S jacket after losing 19lb since January. The problem is I take a short fitting and they are only available in 46" chest and smaller. Made to measure is not a alternative as I have always found off the peg actually fits me better (when I can squeeze in). At this rate of progress hopefully I will be on a clothes buying spree in December. The plan is to diet 40 weeks a year and spend the other 12 pigging out on holiday etc :D

            Typical.. the offer has now been withdrawn on the m&s site so emailed them to see whether can still take them back and they will honour the initial offer which was 2 sets of trousers with each suit purchased. Alternative is I suppose is to order 2 more pairs and return the original 2 pairs on second receipt.

                M & S clothes definitely shrink at sea. Known fact.

                    Bad Idea! I have still got clothes in the wardrobe, bought with good intentions Was going to lose weight before the cruise, Didnt quite get into them before the cruise. There would have been no chance if I had took them. They languish still, intact with the price labels on. Keep saying they are going to the charity shop. A belt to start with, then you wont even need that! Carol :D

                      I also have clothes in the wardrobe with tags on for the day when I finally get to 10.5 stone

                      It isn't going to happen anytime soon so I should save them the anguish & send them to the charity shop now rather than for when people will be buying them for noughties revival evenings or my daughter wearing them as "vintage"

                      Get them back to M&S and get two bigger pairs ~ you'll be far happier:D

                        My pal Dave buys "drinking pants". He showed me them in one of those good ideas booklets you get with the Saturday newspapers. You know the sort of thing, they have portable urinals and devices to catch spiders.

                        Anyway, drinking pants look like any other trousers but have waists which expand by about four inches, as necessary.

                            Take new stuff with tags to a dress agency, they love 'em, plus you get money back to spend on new clothes. Our local one gives me 60% of the sale price back. Everyone is happyCarol
