My NSV would be coming to 3FC. I know I'll be here for a long time. It all started with a doctor who recommended the SBD book.

Jenne, love the wedding pic, what a beautiful setting!!
So I work for a woman's magazine, and our editors jokingly refer to our best-selling covers as "fat pants" covers... apparently, people love to buy magazine with skinny women modeling their former "fat pants" on the cover! When I put on my jeans this morning, i looked in the mirror and held out the waistband... I looked like i could pose for my own "fat pants" cover! So I went shopping for new jeans today... back down to my "happy size." Yay!

Last week, I bought a pair of jeans on the "normal" folks side of the store, and not the "woman's world/plus size"...:dance:
Jenn, that's a beautiful wedding pic...where was it taken?

We got married in Fort Williams park in Cape Elizabeth Maine. It was a park close to my DW's heart. We did have 2 bridesmen -- apparently people thought it was a double wedding at first, lol.
Not to hijack this thread but here are 2 more of our favs -- on the beach and the first rest we had gotten all day once everyone left the reception. I was about 208 in these pictures and I can't wait to get back there! The entire album is here for those interested so I don't take away from any more wonderful NSV!

:love: I love the photos of your wedding day, Jenn! You both just look radiant! And I always get a little chuckle out of the bridal party's flipflops! If anyone looks at the album, look for the pic of their favors. They are inspired!!!
:congrat: to everyone on the amazing NSVs! Love your experience, Jenn, and loved hearing about your newly "unpoppable" tunic, Clare! WTG!
Thanks for starting this thread up, Stacy! Congrats on fitting into smaller jeans...isn't that the BEST feeling? :cloud9:
Swandive, congrats to you, too! Keep those pants so you can see how much smaller and smaller you get over time! :hug: Have you ever seen Meg's (she's a moderator) after photos? There's one where she's standing with both legs in one leg of her old pants. Now THAT's a "fat pants" photo!!! :faint: (you can see it in a small version on her profile: http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/member.php?u=1619)
Jenny, that's exactly how I got started too--my doctor recommended I try SBD. :high:
