I'm officially no longer a muffin top... As of today. That blob around my tummy seems to have decreased more then the scale is showing. I don't know what happened but I learned not to argue with how my clothes fit vs. what the scale says especially since I like the heavier weight lifting....

I've flung those disgusting panties out before, bought them again, now I need to fling them for life? BUT wait... have you seen the pics of stars WITHOUT their spanx? They showed some in a magazine - and yup I buy some of those silly mags now and then - stars like Scarlett J. without Spanz and it's not good!

Perhaps I ought to keep the one pair of spanx that goes clear to my boobs?

Horsey...don't care how much weight I lose...you will never see me without my spanx.

Congrats on banishing the muffin top!!

Really... do you wear spanx on a daily basis? I forgot my drawer of that "stuff" even on a trip to Calif. this winter when my belly was hanging out. Blazers do wonders but I live in a cold winter climate.

Oh, not on a daily basis, that came out wrong. But anytime i'm going to have photos taken of me? You betcha.

I always pack them, though, if only because having them on does make me a bit more confident.

Once you are thin Madalinn, are they as uncomfortable as when you are larger?

Definitely, definitely, definitely not. Much less of the digging into your skin factor...and less rubbing!

Congratulations! Yea, I try to ignore the scale, as long as my clothes are fitting the way I want them to :)

Five lbs makes quite a difference in the stomach I'm thinking. Even 3-4 lbs. I gain my weight THERE and keep skinny legs, strange. But just think of a 5 lb weight, that much FAT, it's gotta make a difference to lose 5 lbs of it...

Ive got weight to lose all around. When i was pregnant with my son (who is now 17 months) I gained weight all over...totally ballooned! I cant use the baby weight as an excuse anymore..lol

I can't wait till the day my pants feel loose..ooh that will be great!!

Spanx? Oh my. I have actually never worn those. I don't like feeling constricted, PLUS I feel like that's just... cheating. I know people "cheat" all the time to look their best, but I love being all natural: I don't wear any skin make-up (I do up my eyes a little and that is it) and I don't need wonderbras (push up bras? sure. padded and filled? nah... my nearly D's are big enough as it is), so why would my lazy arse bother with anything else? :) I do have a tiny bit of loose skin, but it's enough to hide under my shirt. However, if I lost 133 pounds like mandalinn, I might see Spanx in a whole different light ;)

horsey, CONGRATS on the lack of muffin top! I never had too much in the way of a frontal muffin top, but the side muffins (aka HUGE LOVE HANDLES) took FOREVER to get rid of. It sure is liberating not to have jelly hangin' over your jeans, isn't it? :D
