Thank you! I had pictures taken every 2 weeks but, it was when I saw these 2 pictures together that I could see the difference for the first time. I still don't see a difference in real life. Even today, I put on a pair of shorts which were the smallest I'd been able to wear since high school, although they were quite loose, I wasn't able to reconcile that I am smaller than I have ever been.
Even when people say you are skinny, (I am not and they are polite
), I can't accept that they are speaking in terms of where I came from to now. I hear it and think "no, I am the same."

you are A~M~A~Z~I~N~G~!!!!
Thank you! I will post new pictures after my vacation next week. I should be able to get several new photos to share!
Remember when you were excited about your bathing suit?? Well, I tried on my last bathing suit yesterday. It is the last because I've toss out all the big ones. It doesn't fit!! It is loose everywhere. I was hoping to wear it for the trip as it was a size 12 and the top fit well last time I tried it. NOT gonna happen. I will be swimsuit shopping this week it seems.

I appreciate that so much. By the way, I was referring to the exclamation points.
I am quite expressing with my hands and voice. Somehow, I can't get away from over using exclamation points too. LOL...
I was wondering, are you a teacher, editor, or somehow very skilled with English writing skills? I notice that your structure is very clear and well done. I have even see you catch your own split infinitives. I wish I were strong with my grammar skills.
