I can tell I'm losing because my lounge dress, which originally hit my legs mid-calf, now hits the top of my feet. lol... If it gets much longer I'll trip on it.

I've been focused on replacing clothes worn in public, figuring that, if no one sees it I can make do.

I love this thread!

I was able to finally take off the ring my ex husband bought me years ago; it was stuck.

I have 8 pairs of jeans whereas in January none fit me.

I love my closet. It is small, with only 36 hangers, but each item fits me and I am not cramming things in helpless as I have nothing to wear.

I have only 1 storage bin of clothes in the next size down and after that, NOTHING!


So, right now with the clothes that fit me currently I am having a blast accessorizing them in different ways. Going forward, I will NEVER buy something just because it fits. I will buy it only if it flatters me, I love it and it is amazing!

I just picked up some tights too and tights have not fit me in a long time! My wardrobe options are expanding! Can't wait until the maxi dresses fit me!

I can scratch my back easier. I had to climb into a Tow truck this morning and it was easier than it was last time (which was a year ago).

That irritating feeling from the crotch of your jeans now hanging in between your thighs... I chose to deal with this by wearing shorts as underwear and wait until I drop a few sizes before replacing jeans. lol

Ugh, try out a thrift store. I found 2 pairs of good jeans at one for $5 each.

I have underwear in 3 different sizes - just can't seem to give up the baggy 8's and I keep the too tight 6's as an incentive.

I havent broken my office chair in quite some time... It was just dropping and would lean to one side horribly like it was off the threads.

Dont need as many pillows for sleeping...was up to six pillows. The leg pillows for taking pressure off the hips and arm pillows for resting on. More room for DH in the bed now.

Can lay on the couch and my stomach isnt the first thing I see when watching tv.

This is what I plan to do once I have shrunk through all the sizes I saved as I gained. There is one lonely pair left in my "not quite there" drawer.

I suddenly "exist" to men again. When I was at my biggest they studiously ignored me. Even with just the 25 pounds that I have lost so far, I am starting to see them to do the "look you up and down" thing again. Still annoys me as much as it did when I was thin! :-/

I can tell I've lost because yesterday I dropped off 4 pairs of too big dress pants, 6 pairs of jeans, and 5 tops at consignment.

They only take 15 items at a time (and that is up from only 10!) or I'd have taken more. Bit by bit my pile of too big clothes is disappearing even though I add a few things to it every month.

This spoke to me so much -- not because I think geting leered at is amazing and wonderful, but because it's such a crude-but-honest benchmark. This happened for me also, and it was much faster than the scale.

As an aside, probably feeling better about ourselves, standing up straight, etc also makes them notice us. I know that with the weightloss I also try to look my best.

Funny.
