Hahaha! Then prepare yourself, girl--you will be getting more Talbots jeans, cause I have more. I like that those jeans are of really heavy, thick denim. They have a very good "girdle effect," and really hold the belly in, haha, and they don't stretch out much when you wear them so the girdle effect lasts all day!

P.S. Anything that doesn't fit or isn't to your taste--no worries! Just pass it along to the next person, or give it to Goodwill! It gives me joy to know my long inseams are finding homes with other tall women.

I wish tomorrow was jeans day, it is on Fri I am wearing those jeans!!!! LOL

I did it I posted on Facebook, my size and the horrible before pics, LOL

It's quite liberating and just what I needed when I am all bummed about the scale not moving, this proved it, who gives a crap as long as I am eating well and working out it will move eventually!

The travelling pants will continue!!

Glammy better get on here and see this, she is next, I have brand new 16 VS jeans I never wore, I sort of was in 18's FOREVER then all of a sudden 16's were too big I sort of skipped that size!!!

So if I can wear a 12 does that mean I am no longer plus size or full figured? God I want to not be that!!!!

I would think so!!! You are now wearing regular sizes girl!!! WooHooo!!!

Still believe you will drop lower than you figured. Remember that the sizes are quite different from 12 and down. You will drop sizes faster!

Looking good, Amber! Fabulous transformation shown in these photos.

What an inspiration you are to so many others. Chin up and keep marching. You deserve to be applauded for your progress and ONGOING determination and commitment.

Just look at all you've accomplished. Never think for a minute that you "can't" accomplish your future goals.

OMG yes I am going to get there, I am going to be a finisher, not a quitter!!!!

Kristi- what the heck is going on with you, how are you feeling, what is happening????

I need to just chill and keep working it, it might take longer now but it will come!!!

So poor Capt America, he got the chills last night, was up all night barfing and he has to drive to NY today, I feel so bad for him, I guess it is a stomach virus or something, ughggh

Tonight is Bobby's holiday concert, I get to see him play the French Horn, I am very excited for him, he has been doing really well with this one, so we will see I prefer it over the trumpet, LOL Not as disturbing to listen to, LOL

So on we go!!!

Amber! I love all your pics. Especially Wonder Woman! So great. And I love that list of goals. I am thinking about my goals for 2012 and I will post them soon. It was really fun seeing your fashion show too!
Poor Tony. Stomach Flu sucks! I hope he feels better!

Poor Tony! Hoping he recovers fast.

Yes, you can do this! It may take a bit of time, but heck, we don't want to give up!

Ahhh! French Horn! My friend (the crazy one ) plays it! She would so approve! Too bad we didn't live closer! She could give him lessons!

Diane I know I seriously!!!!! I want to cut the tag and sew it to the outside, LOL I remember how appalled I was with Levi's that had the sizes on when we were in school, remember that? I had to scratch them all off, LOL Well the guy Tony is going with is driving, Tony had to rent the car but he said oh well let the young kid drive, he called me he had to pull over to puke, I feel so bad for him you know men are whiny anyway when sick, and now to have a 4 hour car ride, LOL I told him to drink a coke or sprite or something, he said I dont want to give it to you and Bobby I said I will take it maybe I will lose a pound, LOL

So I am approaching day 6 of no charging, it makes me a little sweaty but I am doing it, operating on a cash basis, it is very easy when you have no cash, LOL But I did stash my winnings, so I can buy Bobby something special in NYC next weekend.

I am sending some gifts to my special girls, I wish I could send to all of you, I get paid Fri so I am going to try to get them ready to mail Saturday!!!

All you girls are so special to me, I hope you all know that!!! You are the biggest reasons for my success!!!! We have overcome lots of issues in the last year, all the crap we all have to deal with, no one empowers me more than you ladies!

Found you and you look amazing in all the new pics! I will say it again, you are and have been my inspiration through all of this! I know your family and friends are so proud of you because we all sure are. Of course, we are your "family" now too!!!!!

You look great in the new clothes! Isn't there just something about JEANS that make you feel great about yourself! I think buying new jeans in a smaller size made me feel better than anything else in the world! AND I got more compliments on my weight loss when I wore those too! Not sure what it is, but jeans really shows it off!

Thanks for starting the new journal. I look forward to reading it every day and what everyone else post too!

Have a great day!!!!! I am going to catch up with you soon!

I am here Amber!! I was busy over the weekend.

Went to the gym yesterday and did upper body with the weights, I was so proud of myself...

I know what you mean about the size thing.... you are not in the plus sizes anymore!!!!!! Those pictures are so inspiring.. I haven't been with you through you journey until just a few weeks ago, but I am now!!!

I seen that you need to be eating ~2400 cals/day, what are you going to eat? I am having a lot of trouble eating enough calories.....

I have a coworker leaving for NYC on the 18th, I am so envious.....

Dren- you know what it is, when you wear something that fits or is a little tight it makes you look smaller versus walking around in tents trying to hide everything, I always say that, get something tight and work your way into it, versus big and bulky!!!!

I was so not a jeans girl, I am totally girlie girl I always like skirts and dresses but now that I fit better in jeans I am loving them, I got my grey mini skirt, and purple boots on today the purple boots that are too tight so my feet are already killing me LOL I know Ang is going to yell, but I will suffer for fashion! I have a 2x lavender cardigan on that is way too big but I tied it to the side so it looks a little better. I love me some purple!

I got this cute dress at Dots I was going to wear today for the concert, umm hello I pulled it on and it barely covered my butt, I already had tights on, but it will be a cute long sweater top with black leggings, that is the problem with their stuff the junior stuff is way too short!

Kristi- there was another Kristie that posted, I have not heard form her, but of course I missed you too!!!

OMG eating 2400 calories was tough, I felt like a hog, and I was down a pound, after a trainer workout, that usually doesn't happen!!!! Let me see if I can post ****** in here so you can see what I ate,

Ok I didn't hit 2400 calories I ate 1968- hey my birth year! Here is what I had yesterday it seemed like a ton of food, I was not hungry and was not woozy there was no way I could stuff in any more food at all.

5 cups of coffee
5 ounces of half and half
3 slices bacon
2 eggs cooked in butter
1 c coconut milk
1 scoop protein powder
1/2 grapefruit
2 ounces of almonds
LC bagel- that was pre workout
4 slices turkey breast
4 ounces of rotisserie chciken
mayo
2 ounces cheddar cheese
pure protein shake
LC muffin
Salad with celery, baby carrots and grape tomatos-that was post workout with olive oil and apple cider dressing

Ended up at 55% fat, 34% protein, 11% carbs, but net carbs were 30

Be sure to count all your fat, like the olive oil, butter, mayo all that adds up, it is tough to eat 2400 calories, man that is a lot of food, I kept shoving almonds in but too many almonds is not a good thing, so I have to watch that, this morning was a disaster since Tony was sick, so I had a shake and bacon then drank another shake and a LC yogurt when I got to work. I have to think about the rest of the day!

Well we will see I am really hoping that maybe this will work, every time I went back to low carb I was no where close to eating that many calories, maybe with all the exercise it just boiled down to the fact I was starving myself, and that is why I don't lose.

I love fat though, I love lC, cheese, bacon, olive oil bring it on, can I tell you how sick I was of spinach with no oil on it, yak, and wings I told tony I want fried wings this weekend drenched in good old old bay butter yummy!!!

I hate to say this but I discovered a really good lc pastry, more muffin then donut, but but they are like cream filled donuts, 2 net carbs, no fake ingredients and low fat and high fiber. Thank God I ordered a ton before my charges went bye bye, LOL

I am going to eat one a day it totally kills my sweet tooth and I hope I can still lose, I love that they are low calorie and low fat as well.

Cookies are not good, don't get them!!! My fav is the vanilla with white cream and the chocolate with white cream, and the whoopie pies, OMG the pumpkin whoopie pies! I swear I will be able to get through the holidays with these, not that I like pushing LC treats but darn sometimes you need them!

I will not be too blame should you overindulge though, LOL

Somewhere I was reading they use Agave nectar which is suppose to have a low glycemic index??? you know I am not a fan of LC treats they usually taste like crap, but these are almost ******ic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am a total freaking nut, but at this point, I just don't care, I lay it all out there, LOL

OMG I am going to blow up those size pics and stick them to my butt and my front---- on Friday everyone in Reading, PA will know I have on size 12 jeans, this is almost as exciting when I fit into 18's at Old Navy, I remember sitting in my car and bawling all night that I didn't have to go to Lane Bryant, LOL. Certain things affect you this was one, being stalled for so long its easy to get discouraged, but exercise is my secret weapon, I am standing by that! The thing with me is we are talking 30 + years of being fat, it wasn't like 10 years ago I was thin, I have always been fat, fatter and fattest, so for me everything is more shocking! LOL
