I'm happy to report that I've managed to hit three milestones in one week.
1) I have lost 25 pounds.
2) I have lost 10 percent of my body weight (starting weight 249.8).
3) I had to buy new jeans last night due to the weight loss, and for the first time in YEARS, I had to buy them in the misses section and not in women's/plus. It feels very weird to see 16S instead of 16WP on the tag (weird, but good!).
