Default NSV - Size medium running skirt!

I've really been struggling to get any weight off lately. The blasted scale just doesn't want to budge. However I noticed that my Sparkle Skirts, my favorite running gear, were no longer staying in place. I was spending a lot of time pulling them back up. I went to go visit a friend a few weeks ago, and she said that I looked like I'd lost a lost of weight in the 5 weeks since I'd seen her. 6 lbs isn't a lot when you're 200+ lbs, so I thought she was being nice. I figured what the heck, and I tried on one of her medium skirts. It fit! It's a little snug, but it looks fine. So I sold my larges and got some mediums. I've only lost around 15 lbs since Jan, but I'm happily shocked by the difference in how I look. I can't wait until I can add another picture in Dec, after I've finished training for and finish my first marathon.

July 4 Goal

Wow! You look like you've lost so much more! It's a perfect example of how the scale doesn't show the real picture of what's truly going on. Congrats to you!

First goal: under 180:
Second goal: 175 or below:
Third goal: 168 (no longer overweight):
Fourth goal: 160 or below:
Final goal: 145-155 (not sure if this will ever happen):
