I've had a year off and have lost hardly any weight. I look a total frump. Why oh why did I not take dieting more seriously??

Anyway, I'm 12 trousers and 14-16 top. I'm 5'3" (so look massive) and don't wear skirts.

Can someone help me to decide what to buy please? I've lost all confidence sad

are you going back to where you worked before or is it a new job and what is it

Yes going back to where I was. Am in an office job in the City.

cant you just order LOADS from Next and send back stuff thats no good?
does that make you apple shaped?

do you have to wear a suit?

if not, smart trousers and tops and co-ordinating jackets work well for me (actually now I'm 6 mo pg I wear whatever fits grin)

also if you are in the City can you do some clothes shopping in your lunch break? If so you'll only need a few outfits to start with
