So I don't want to seem self-centered, but I need to crow to someone, and there is only so much that DBF can handle :^::^::^:

I am involved in a "Biggest Loser" competition at work, and back on January 5 I gave my Q1 goal loss as 15 pounds... and today, on the last day of March... 15 pounds!!! As a department (there are five of us in the competition), we've lost 55+ pounds... it really was so inspiring for everyone involved.

So I decided to treat myself with a quick shopping trip... it was my first real shopping since starting to lose... AMAZING. I was still in my old mindset, so I was expecting things to be too small that were actually way too big. I bought three pairs of pants in a size that I haven't seen since high school!!!

Incidentally, I've dropped two pant sizes... but my bra measurements haven't budged. I am comically top-heavy, and becoming more and more disproportionate by the day as my backside shrinks and my top doesn't. So fingers crossed that's the next to start disappearing!!!

Who better to crow too than the chicks? Great job! Many would envy your weight loss pattern - for me the boobs were the first to go, bootie last. :(
