I can finally fit into an 11 (10 in even size stores)! It's almost unfathomable because I don't ever remember being this low in weight or clothing size.

It's crazy almost because I was always an overweight kid and I never paid attention to clothing size back then (except I DID want to be in smaller clothes). When I did start paying attention as a kid I was in the highest size, a 16. When I did my crash diet at 13 I only got down to 13 and went on a long binge and got back up to 18 and then beyond so this is amazing to me.

I have a cute little size 11 skirt that fits me GREAT but no where to wear it to:lol:! Thank you all for all your support here!! It's what got me started and kept me going (and will keep me going)! :carrot: :hug:

Yay! What a fantastic feeling! Wear the skirt anywhere - even just around the house - you deserve to wear it!

Thank you gals so much!! And you know what, that's a great idea.. finally a reason to wear it haha! I will go out and get a digital camera (and possibly a scanner if I have enough money) tomorrow:). I need to post progress anyway hehe.


Congratulations to you all, btw:carrot:!

I bought a digital camera and I'm going to have to find a way to take a picture of my before pics so when I do that I'll get pics up.

Since I don't have a scanner, I also had to take a pic of my before, and what I did was take the pic at a distance (so it isn't blurry) and then I uploaded it, transferred it to Paint, zoomed in on just me, cropped it, saved it into photobucket and then resized it.

I hope that made sense, if it didn't, tell me and I'll try to explain better. I'm almost ready to pass out . . . :tired:

Oh, and congratulations on your size 11!!! I think that's where I'll be when I reach goal. I bet you look fantastic!!!

I am SOOOOO happy for you!!! I know what an incredible feeling that is and I can picture the smile on your face. I am really looking forward to seeing the pictures.

I sometimes wish that I had done something about my weight when I was younger, but I have to accept that things happen for a reason, and at least I DID something, even if it took to my early 40s to 'wake up'.

You have definitely put a smile on my face, to make a lovely start to my day.

Take care,

Zelma

Thanks so much all; *every* one of you are sweet and it means so much because without the support I don't think I could have done it!!

You all have done so great in your journeys:hug:! You've all made me so happy! I wasn't having the best day until I came here:).

Btw! I just posted my pics here (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/showthread.php?p=1349702#post1349702)!

Harpo -- thank you!! I'm glad
Zelma -- I've said things like that to myself, "why didn't I do that before" .. but what you said is true.. you *did* do it and you have done so well!


I'm almost in tears here!

CONGRATULATIONS - that is a huge NSV. I agree with Sierra - wear the skirt, even if its just around the house, you feel good, look good, show it off girl.

Thanks so much gals!! I wore the skirt around the house twice and it felt so good!

PinkSnowDays -- I wish you the best on your journey and congrats on your weightloss so far! You're doing great and if you need some motivation just think of all the different things you can do when you become even healthier. I know it sure is easier for me to walk on the treadmill!!

I'm always here if anyone needs me:).

Wow Pixie! The change is amazing! Great pics. I love seeing pics of everyone's losses. It's great to hear about it, but to see the difference...wow! You're doing such a great job. Glad to hear you wore your skirt :) Wear it out shopping or something...no reason not to dress up!
