So I've lost weight...

It's hard for me to see the changes to my body because I'm a slow loser and being big is stuck in my head.

I need a swimsuit for an upcoming weekend and I tried my swimsuits on from my honeymoon in Jamaica. See picture over there <---------------- for example. I weighed about 230-235 there.

Well, the top no longer stays up and the butt looks like I'm trying to sag the swimsuit. And, the tummy squeezer part to flatten everything does nothing for me cause it's too loose!

I cried. Like not cried, I sobbed. Holy crap, I'm actually doing it. I'm actually sticking with it and losing it and it's actually coming off. This may have been the first smack in my face to make me realize it's happening.

Love this post! I can relate. Something just clicks and you find yourself realizing that you are doing it, actually doing it!!!!

After years of trying and failing I still pinch myself.

Congrats Tina!

I'm so happy for you and know exactly how you feel. I can't see changes because I think I broke that part of of my brain lol so it's the clothes that let me know as well.

My husband kept plucking the excess material on the back of my swimsuit and snapping it at the beach last week. It made me very happy. Suggest you dig through your old jeans, because I'm now in a smaller size and maybe you are, too. I was litterally prancing around when I put them on.

You go, girl!

Congratulations! And you see the differences in a swimsuit, too - one of the least forgiving articles of clothing on the planet!
