Got out of the bath today and groaned when I saw there were none of "my" towels in the closet. I've used beach towels for years now, as they cover all of me when I wrap them around me. So, reluctantly I grabbed one of the regular bath towels.

It fit around me! I wrapped it around myself and tucked it in, and it stayed, without a gap showing half of me! I was stunned. It's been, gods, maybe 15 yrs since I could do that. I've been really discouraged this week as I've bounced up and down a few lbs and finally am back to 206 (I had some chewing gum the other day and apparently it tossed me out of ketosis?) but this made me very happy!

A small thing, but not so small to me

Always carry a towel :P

Sorry, had to get that out of my system. In any case, great job! It's amazing how much being covered by something smaller can give you a little ego boost. In Japan they have "body towels" at bath houses that are about 90 cm long and 35 cm wide and I was ecstatic the other day when I wrapped one around myself and could stand up and be *mostly* covered (while it went all the way around me, my torso is longer than most Japanese women's apparently, so it was still embarrassingly short).

Fantastic work! Congrats!

It is those "small things" which no one else sees that make us see what a long way we have gone. A couple more: crossing our legs without much effort, or noticing out panties don't leave read marks on our legs... Yay!
Congratulations!
