I should get a copy of my before pics. Even though I'm only going on my fourth week of IP, I still want to see.

Thank you! I had pictures taken every 2 weeks but, it was when I saw these 2 pictures together that I could see the difference for the first time. I still don't see a difference in real life. Even today, I put on a pair of shorts which were the smallest I'd been able to wear since high school, although they were quite loose, I wasn't able to reconcile that I am smaller than I have ever been.

Even when people say you are skinny, (I am not and they are polite ), I can't accept that they are speaking in terms of where I came from to now. I hear it and think "no, I am the same."

Thank you! I will post new pictures after my vacation next week. I should be able to get several new photos to share!

Remember when you were excited about your bathing suit?? Well, I tried on my last bathing suit yesterday. It is the last because I've toss out all the big ones. It doesn't fit!! It is loose everywhere. I was hoping to wear it for the trip as it was a size 12 and the top fit well last time I tried it. NOT gonna happen. I will be swimsuit shopping this week it seems.

Thank you. I appreciate that so much. By the way, I was referring to the exclamation points. I am quite expressing with my hands and voice. Somehow, I can't get away from over using exclamation points too. LOL...

I was wondering, are you a teacher, editor, or somehow very skilled with English writing skills? I notice that your structure is very clear and well done. I have even see you catch your own split infinitives. I wish I were strong with my grammar skills.

omgosh, i am SO excited for you!!!!!! i have YET to buy the new swimsuit, still waering the one that i bought on my honeymoon.

sad but funny story now. i was 4 months pregnant with my son on our honeymoon(my daughter was with a not so wonderful potential husband-so i left him for the hubster). i somehow FORGOT to bring my swimsuit on my honeymoon to south padre island(which is wonderful and i encourage you ALL to go there). well fatty McPregnanters had to go bathing suit shopping and i LITERALLY started crying in the surf shop we were at because i couldn't find any bikini to work right with me- mind you i've always worn a two piece-from the heaviest to the lightest, i always have refused to wear a one piece because i FOURTUNATELY did not inherit stretch marks from my lovely mother(love her for this)

the poor saleswoman just looked at me with pity the entire time i was squeezing my butt into MEDIUM bottoms-which are basically meduim juniors bottoms-because that's all they sell in two pieces

JEEZ-did i get a wake up call then that it was time for something different-and IP was completley IT!

just had to share the story, poor lady dealing with an overweight, pregnant mess

Well, uh, I have a PhD in English and Theatre so I d--m well better have some skill. But I'm also mildly dislectic, so it's always an up hill battle. I thank you, so very much, for the compliment.

OH my! I must say you were brave to be in a little 2 piece while pregnant. I don't think I would ever be so courageous. On the other hand, I have always been super self-conscious.

I feel so bad for you that you were stranded without a bathing suit and had to go through that experience. It isn't the easiest time in your life and, from watching my friends/sisters, you don't feel like yourself sometimes so, to had the bathing suit shopping (horrible under the best circumstances)... ARRGHHH!

I can't wait to hear which bathing suit(s) you end up with in a week or two! I am sure you can't wait to try them all on with your new, skinny body! YEAH!!

I thought so!! I didn't get that you had dyselxia but, I did realize that you had an English background. I was never very strong in that arena. I still remember doing sentence diagrams and CRYING!

I am trying very hard right now to get a new "burst" or change but, if things go as they have, I am about 8 pounds a month now. That seems to make it tedious and less noticeable.

ALSO, all the initial change was face and upper body, now, I am losing in the hips, butt, and legs.

Hi Erin, thanks for the greeting and the encouragement. I'm sorry to admit not a native texan (air force brat), but I have been here for 35 years (well transplanted, and use y'all just like a native).

Thanks for the photo bucket info. I will have to register there.
Thank you for the kind words. I've had so many others encourage me, that it's nice to know that I am now encouraging others.

Great Job ShrinkingSusie. You're losing like a champ.
