Default My clothes are starting to fit again!

So the scale is telling me I lost 17 pounds these past two months but I wasn't really seeing it or feeling it until yesterday.

I have these jeans that a few weeks ago I was forcing myself into...the whole "hold your breath, suck in your gut and try to yank that zipper up hard as you can while giving yourself callouses on your fingers" scenario. Yesterday I tried them on and they fit...no hard labor involved! Then today I put on a jacket I also hadn't worn for a few months and noticed that it fit me looser and I didn't look quite as round in it.

It's strange...our perceptions of our bodies...what we see or don't see. Others saw it before I did. I mean, I believed what the scale was telling me but I didn't "see" it until I put those jeans on.

Thanks, guys!

I don't know about the "slim and trim" part but I'm glad I'm at least heading in that general direction.

I have a closet in my basement full of jeans for all sizes, lol. Hopefully, I'll be able to fit into some of those soon.

I gave away all my thin clothes... well, maybe that was a good thing, since they are 10 years old and pretty much out of style...

Guess I will have to buy some more in a few months...

Ellie -
Hats off to you. Sounds like it might be time to treat your self to a new pair of jeans. I like to give away my old "thin" cloths to charity and treat myself to new cloths as I lose weight.

Hi Ellie!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE those victories over clothes!!!

I know what you mean about the perceptions of our bodies. When we're fat we are tricked into thinking that we are actually thinner, and when we get thinner...well, we still feel that we are as fat as we were before or close to it! Confusing!
