Default Banished the safety pin!

Don't know if 'safety pin' means anything in American? Very small diaper pin?

I graduated a couple of Sundays ago into my slightly smaller workshirt but still had to have it pinned on the inside for when I sit down, to avoid a nasty gape.

When I put it on yesterday - no need for the safety pin! That is a big woohoo for me, because my midsection apple is my worst point, fat or thin.

Ailidh, I share your apple shape (and I don't mean my rosy cheeks) so I know how absolutely WONDERFUL it is when that area of your body lets go of some of its pounds and inches. That is a really cool non-scale victory, my dear! You are really making great progress !

WOOT! WOOT! BYE-BYE BELLY!

How wonderful for you!!! When I saw the title of your post, I knew exactly what you were talking about since I have to pin a few shirts closed myself. On the flip side, soon you will have to pin your pants up because they are to big!!
