I know the feeling. I was buying a top today for my holiday, they had S, M, L, XL and XXL. I thought the XXL looked very big so picked up the XL and discovered it buried me! I don't know how they sized those things, but I wasn't complaining.

SW - 260, Original GW - 160 - achieved 21 March 2006, CW erm... I'll get back to you on that

4 sub-4 hour marathons! (PB 3:44:05)!

WTG Sunshine. I love it when clothes don't fit anymore and you have to go smaller.

WOOHOO, Sunshine! What a great feeling! Well done -- keep a memory to keep you going!

Isn't it great to see such tangible results? Its one thing to see the number on the scale change, but to actually feel yourself fitting into smaller clothes brings it home even more forcefully! Good job, people!

My o My don't I know the feelin Sunshine. Tis the best feelin in the world. I remember when about 3 years back when I lost about 25 pounds and I pulled out some jeans with no spandex in them that I had not worn in about 5 years. They where tight when I bought them but I didn't want to take them back. When I pulled them jeans on and I had room to spare I sat on the edge of my bed and just thanked God! Well since then I had another baby and with him came the same darn 25 pounds. So now he's 1 and I'm back on a mission.

Highest Weight 284
Current Weight 209
Goal Weight 190ish
ShortTerm Goal 199

Summer Goal Aug. 31st

Fantastic...way to go! You hard work is showing and finally you can reap the rewards. I had the same experience a couple of months ago and it was wonderful. I need to get working at it so I can experience it again. Again, congrats!!
