After bouncing around the past 3-4weeks between 199 and 202, I've finally gotten consistent weigh INS around 198 the past 3days and as today is my official weigh in day, I'm totally claiming it!

I just wanted to stop over here (my favourite place on 3fc) and say thank you to everyone here. To people in my real life, apparently the weight has just melted off stress-free on its own because I never talk about it IRL. But you guys here KNOW how hard it is/ has been. If you haven't come across one of my whiny posts then you've gone through this journey or are going through it right now, so you KNOW!!! You know the ups and downs and the highs and lows and the everything it takes to win against each pound in this journey. So thank you!

I don't post that much anymore but I come here every single day and read all your posts and I don't think you can imagine how much they've helped and inspired and gotten me through tears and frustration, picked me up and made me laugh and learn. So thank you all so much for helping me get here when even 10lbs ago it seemed impossible.

Its taken 2years to get here, 50% of that time spent on actually being on plan and the other 50% spent faffing around in subconscious "maintenance" (i.e. being off plan and not losing, but not gaining either). I'm totally psyched for the last 33 (or probably more) pounds and look forward to sharing that with you guys.

This is very exciting for me and I'm so appreciative. I'm going to take progress pics this week and post them sometime this week.

Thanks soooo much for all the encouragement and support! I promised pics and though I suck at progress pics and I absolutely refuse to involve anyone else in taking them, here they are!!!

Sometimes, I'm not altogether convinced I look THAT different (I mean 75-lbs different) especially in the chest, but I think there is some difference. It's complicated. I know my clothing sizes have changed but I don't really see that much of a difference in pictures.

270s was in lane bryant size 20 pants, 198 is in size 12 lee "slim fit" jeans. I can get into a M tee shirt and M in cardigans (down from an XXL), a size 16 non-stretch jacket/blazer (from a 22), and the chest has gone from a 44J to a 38G.
