Thank you everyone! It is nice to get positive support from others.
Elizabeth - I did not take measurments, and while I have lost 9 pounds (as of last weigh-in) I can feel and see the difference. Last week I put a pair of pants that would have been comfortable, but fitted, last winter and I could pull them off without unbuttoning them!
I also notice that where I would have come home from work and immediately put on sweats, I am so much more confortable leaving on my "work" pants, as they fit better.
