Hey all, I've felt my weight loss has been quite good on paper but haven't noticed any changes. My favourite gray and pink pinstriped workpants are dangerously loose! I can't believe it! I finally feel like I am getting somehere. Oh happy day!

Better invest in a belt, darlin' cuz they'll just keep getting looser and looser at the rate you're going (unless you want to show off your knickers and make a REAL impression at work) ;)

Good work!

Good work!

I might invest in a diamond studded thong and were my pants as hipsters!!! I've always aspired for that look!!!!!! :dizzy: :dizzy: ;) :D

I can't wait to lose a bit more and do my now second favourite recreational activity, shopping!!!! (exercise is now number one, scarily!)

The incredible shrinking woman! How great is that. Congrats. (Do they really make diamond studded thongs?)

I have proof of the existence of the diamond (well diamante) thong (http://www.cheshireknickers.com/item.asp?i=48). I'm picturing my pants worn as hipsters, with the whole Britney-esque visible thing thing happening, it's such an attractive look :dizzy: :o

:lol: I was chuckling at myself the other day when I saw Sam on Amazing Makeovers (an American show where the people get plastic surgery, do you see it there?) tell one of the women they could wear lingerie outside as a top and I said hunh??? not me, no matter how skinny I get :lol:

My daring fashion days are gone, ha. (Which raises the question, did I ever really have daring fashion days???)

I haven't seen Amazing Makeovers, I have seen a US episode of Extreme Makeovers, which is just plain scary.

The thong and baggy pants look was really popular here a couple of years ago. I think girls have realised it just isn't a good look. I hate the really low hipsters, I don't care how slim I get there is just no way (I also have a 16 inch scar across my tummy so anything that shows that part of my body is off limits!

YAY! Great job! It must feel fantastic to actually feel a difference and see it! As Jill said, I'd buy a belt - they're just gonna keep getting bigger and bigger. My other suggestion is, as you start buying new things - maybe buy them just a little tight so they'll last you longer! :)

:lol: You're right, it's Extreme Makeovers, my memory isn't what it used to be (even from last week). I like watching that show. Kind of a bizarre concept. I don't think I'd ever have plastic surgery, but I can relate to people who suffer due to the way they feel they look.

It's one of those fashions that look good on 0.2 percent of the population and still so many women want to wear it. When I was in college, jeans that hugged your legs all the way to the ankle were the big style, I loved them. On Oprah the other day (which I watched because it was about wearing clothes so that you look like you've lost 10 lbs, ha), they said no woman can wear those successfuly, toss them in the garbage. They make your rear look huge. Oh well, I was the fashion victim yet again :o heh heh

I did the skin tight bubble gum jeans, and the ra ra skirt, and bad eighties perms, we are not immune to falling victim to bad fashion. It seems like such a good idea at the time.

I have thought if I lose weight and have a miniskirt of skin I would consider surgery, but we will see, maybe the exercise will work wonders and I won't need it!!!

I watched Extreme Makeovers when i was in Amsterdam, and I think it was voiced over in Dutch, made it very amusing!!!!
