My underwear are getting too big and baggy.
My rings are getting looser.
I have a pair of jeans. Haven't worn jeans in years.
I'm fitting into my cargo pants from my old wardrobe.
My back looks smoother where my bra is instead sticking out above and below.
My breasts and belly don't blend together anymore; definite delineation.
My curvaceous figure is back!!
I'm not feeling as self-conscious about my appearance as I was.
My little double chin is disappearing - this one was SO embarrassing!

My skinny jeans are my baggy jeans, my shoes are loose and had to put extra holes in my belts and shoe buckles. Can't find anything to wear that does not look Like I am swimming in it.

The other day we were out for breakfast and I got chilly in the restaurant. I got one of my husband's shirts from the car to wear, and I was swimming in it, to the point that the sleeves were getting in my way. His shirts used to almost fit me. Actually, I weighed more than he does when I started this.

Oh yeah, and it takes a lot less alcohol to get me drunk. Learned that the hard way Friday night.

I noticed a guy that I was ringing up in the checkout line buying Atkins things and told him I was on low carb too and he looked and me and was like "You? You don't need to be on low carb."

My work pants, which were always a little loose, are now huge. I'm going to have to buy new ones soon. They're starting to look like clown pants.

I had to buy a new bra today. This is good and bad. I'm glad I'm shrinking, but I'm sad that it seems like all my inches are coming off my chest. Ugh. My old bras were becoming way too loose.

I'm starting to see veins and definition in my hands and fingers. I love that. They don't look as puffy and bloated as they used to.

Instead of my pants being tight on my calves, they are now fitting the way they are supposed to and now show the square cut they have.

And you're thinner than me.. I think I'll stop losing now. lol Seriously though, it's kinda hard for me because being mostly invisible is why it was so comfortable for me to be fat for so long. I'm almost always alone too when I'm out. It's not even boobage because I had them flattened to death with an Enell sports bra one day. I guess I can hope once I'm thin again that I'll just blend in and be nothing special to gawk at.


Yesterday, 2 creeps were following me out of a parking garage in their car and he's making hand motions at me to come near him. Nice car and all dressed up in a suit and and I guess that was supposed to to be the attraction but it wasn't at all. I gave him an..uh, no look and got out of there fast. He didn't even open his window. It made me all paranoid like making sure they weren't following me. They had plates from a state 3 hours away..made it creepier. This was also around 9pm even though plenty of people were around.

This doesn't work for me.. my current pair of jeans are FINALLY loose on my calves but now the crotch is hanging. I can pull them up and down without unbuttoning them. It's like I can't find that perfect fit where the waist is small, wide in the hips and thighs and calves. Bootcut jeans are too tight on the thighs for me.

Said this before, will say it forever: husband recognition of weightloss is the biggest NSV ever, even better than anything the scale says IMO

That does sound scary, you did the right thing to get away from them fast!

I know I've lost fat because I moved the great black jeans that were in my "not quite there" drawer to my "these fit" drawer.

I also moved a pair of jeans from my "these fit" drawer to my "take to consignment" pile.

My "not quite there" drawer now has one pair of blue jeans "not quite there" and one pair a bit smaller than that. There is also a pair of black jeans that I'm not motivated to try on because they are 3 inches to long so I will probably not wear them anyway.

I finally tried on those too long jeans. They are too big, too. lol.. I got them years ago at a thrift store. They wre skin tight & I thought I'd lose weight soon, shorten them & wear them lots. They are very light weight & I know that is why I got them. But they are in the laundry hamper & will go to consignment on my next trip.

I wore those cool black jeans that fit when I went out tonight along with a new top that is loose enough I could surely wear the next size down. The smaller I get the faster I seem to go through sizes. That won't last so I might as well enjoy it!
