Congratulations! I'm with Emel. I'd rather lose a size than see it on the scale. I remember losing 2 dress sizes without the scale showing even a loss of 1 lb but I could feel it in my body. Sometimes I think our body is restructuring in less obvious ways (and getting ready for that next loss).

Garlic the best thing to me is hearing how your mood has shifted into positive gear!

Sort of off topic, but moods can be pretty changeable. I was dreaming about an alcoholic drink yesterday . . . I think because I was a bit mentally weary. My losses are slow, not unexpectedly, but it was sure nice to wake up this morning and my work-in-the-yard-jeans feeling wonderfully not tight fitting!

Now imagine if I start losing considerable weight!

lisarray and Garlic, you both just gave me the best end of the day laugh I've had in awhile! Nothing like tucking yourself in after a laugh. No better way to end the day, imo.
