yay for being in that 14! I find sitting is the 2nd phase after zipping

To all the gals looking for dresses with sleeves...If you find a dress you like that's sleeveless, just get it and wear a lightweight cardigan with it. Cardis come in loads of different colors, are inexpensive, and the spring fabrics won't make you hot but will hide your arms.....just a thought

I'm all about little shrug sweaters or light weight 3/4 sleeve "jackets". I got one I've been wearing almost every day from Nordstrom rack. It got a little "pulled" by the EMTs when they took me out of the car and stapped me to the back board. They cut DW's shirt off so it could have been worse.

I won't be able to try on my stuff until later tomorrow night - probably long past when most of you are in bed. I did try on my jacket a few days ago and I can get the top 2 buttons (of 4) buttoned. Obviously its snug, and can't wear in public yet but we'll see how things go tomorrow when we try the whole outfit!

How cool is that???
SO cool! I am very excited for that transition ... especially for the option of petites which usually fit me better and are few and far between in the women's department.

Yay! So exciting! I know you love those jeans, and I'm so happy you didn't have to give up on this challenge!

Carly, your skirt is beautiful! Wow, a 2P. It looks gorgeous.

Dawn and LG, you both have fabulous arms! Beautiful tank pics!

I've lost 3 1/4 inches from my arms since starting, but it's a place where my body likes to store fat and I have far to go.

Thank goodness for lightweight cardigans and jackets ... I wear them in any sleeve length between 1/2 and long all the time, but where I live it will soon be just be too hot for even a light one, so it seemed silly to buy a dress where I had to have that to be able to wear it? Also, even with cardigans, they sometimes fit everywhere BUT the arms.

WTG Cindy! Size 14 is so great! Good for you!

Carly, you look amazingly slender! That's such a cute skirt, and I can't believe anyone actually fits in a 2P! Wowza!

Dawn, you're rocking the tank, girl! Nice arms!

I tried on my 16 Levis, and just as I thought, NOT HAPPENING! I have made progress, however. They do go up over my thighs, but still struggling at the hips and stomach. The two sides of the zipper couldn't be any farther apart! But it's fine, I'll be in them soon. I'm not so smart for picking such a lofty goal, knowing full well that TOM is likely to make it's appearance tomorrow, and I'm a bit bloated. I wouldn't have made it anyway, but perhaps would have had just a bit less stomach in the way! My 18s go on snug, but if I sit in them for 5 minutes, they are just fine.

Well done ladies! Let's keep on working it.

Ladies your arms look great!!!!! The tan top I'm wearing in the picture I have in an identical tank top, but I don't think my arms are worthy of that yet. They are so incongruent with other visible parts of my body. They do match my upper thighs and lower stomach.

My arms and upper body were the last place to get big, and they didn't get nearly as big as the rest of me so I'm thankful for that. It's also the place with the most noticeable weight loss (upper body, waist). You notice I didn't post a picture of my lower body. Thanks for the kind words.

We are all built so differently. My weight was in my belly, the girls and upper arms. My butt was still flat and I had fairly thin legs all considering.

My upper body looked like your photo when I got to about 140!

Oh really? I though she had long pointy ears!

Congrats on those who got to gaol, keep on keeping on to those who didn't.

Wonderful to see Carly, Dawn and Cindy looking so good.

I did get into my goal jeans, and did them up...they have NO stretch, I had forgotten that!

I am afraid after 10 minutes I took them off, they sit just below my waist and the muffin top was just a bit much for the world to see. Also, I noticed that one of the knees is very badly scuffed. May try dying them.

Anyway I was reasonably happy and the scales were nice and low too. If I could just get off my butt and do the callanetics all wold be well.

Watching and waiting for everyone else.

Your physical transformation is absolutely shocking! You're arms are gorgeous! You look so athletic! It's amazing how very toned they are after losing 120 lbs.!!!

You look spectacular!!So that's what a tiny 2P looks like...it fits you perfectly!

Can't wait to see more of how far you've all come with all the progress you've made in the last few months.

This is just the inspiration I need, because I seem to be going backwards.

Haha, I do have darker hair naturally. And, it's recently gotten a little wave and curl to it inexplicably (always board straight throughout my life till now), but I usually dry it and flat iron.

My "girls" are enhanced, or I'd be a lot smaller in my upper body.

Cindy, I've never been elfin, but I like the look!

ETA: That is a medium sequined tank from the Gap. It was riding up way higher than it was meant to be...be thankful you didn't see the lower half.

I will be trying my outfit on later today (I'm off from work this week so getting out of my jammies before noon is hard LOLOL). I can't wait until I am able to wear a tank top! My arms need a bit of work though. I am using the arm machines at the gym every other day so eventually by the time I get to my goal weight I will be much more toned. I also need work in my tummy area but honestly I will never be tiny on top. I have a large rib cage unfortunately so even if I was so skinny you could see my ribs, I still will never wear a small!

You guys look awesome! Dawn and Librarygirl congrats on having "public arms". Alas a public tank top is not in my future. Thighs and upper arms are my most problematic problem areas. Congrats to all those making progress towards your goals even if you didn't zip it today you are getting closer!

Be proud Cindy! You not only fit in a medium tank top, but it looks great on you! Really. Enjoy your youthful arms, and show them off while you can. I haven't gone sleeveless in over 8 years, because of my bat wings.

The more weight I lose, it seems the flabbier looking they get. I think that is what is discouraging me the most from reaching my ideal goal weight at my age. That may also be why each and every time I get within 10 lbs. of my goal, I begin to sabotage myself. Like I did once again in recent weeks. I'm now up 7 lbs. from my low last month.

ETA: A photo of me wearing a sleeveless tank top this morning at 148 (again). My arms have been big my whole life. As a teenager, the boys use to call me "Wonder Woman"...

Ok, I tried them on. I have good news and bad news. The good news is that both shirt and pants pretty much fit. The pants are bit snug but they button up fine. The shirt is clingy but fits. The bad news is that I can't wear both pieces together. I need a shirt a bit more forgiving if I want to wear the pants and I need looser pants if I want to wear the shirt LOL Does that make sense??? I put the shirt on with my yoga pants and they look ok. I can't tell you the last time the pants fit. I was so upset when I couldn't even pull them up past my hips a few months ago!

It fits, It fits!

When I tried this dress on at the beginning of the challenge I had to suck in to get the belt to go to the first hole - it was cutting into my skin and hurt so bad. Today - I'm at the second hole! I did not try on the dress through out the challenge and imagine my surprise when it acutally fit!

Monica, it not only fits you look absolutely beautiful in it. Stripes can be a tough call but you are rocking it. I think a date night is due.

Kismet, they were on you, so you win! It won't be long before you can wear them together I know.

Anna, you seem to know why you aren't losing. But I am sending a hug anyway.

Monica, your beautiful big smile tells it all. That's really a big difference in how well that dress fits you, after you've lost almost 10 lbs. It just skims so smoothly over you now. Great job!

This is so exciting to see eveyone looking good and fitting into all of these clothes!!!

I didn't do the challenge, but I am able to wear some of my 16's now. After I had my son I was wearing a 20 and was in an 18 when I started JUDDD.
