Good Morning everyone.

Today is my weigh in day, weighed 2.4 pounds lighter on my home scale than last week and got my period this morning, so very happy with the results.

16.6 pounds to goal

Good morning everyone!

Put on the only size 12 jeans I have right now, and I keep having to pull them up. I wore them over the weekend and they were fine, but this week they are a little loose. Should have worn a belt with them.

I have to say it's fantastic to have my pants keep getting looser instead of tighter!

Sonya- Congrats on the loss this week.

Sonya-Congrats! That is wonderful!

I have a NSV today, I'm going to buy a smaller size of jeans and I am so excited!

I kept telling myself "If I dry my current ones on high heat, AND wear a belt, then I can wear them a bit longer." But I realize that is not how I should think about it. It is inevitable that I will need the smaller size, and the sooner I get them, the better I will feel!

I saw a commercial last night and Old Navy has jeans on sale for $15 on black Friday. I was thinking of buying a pair of size 10's, 8's & 6's so that I will have at least one pair ready when I need them.

Ragdoll, that is a wonderful idea, I did that three years ago and now all those pants are coming in handy. Last week I got into the 2's, this week they are getting more than comfy, I never bought the zero's thinking, really, who am I kidding.

Most of my weight is in the boobs and abs, so I will probably go to a zero before I lose all the weight.

Congrats on getting those pants loser, isn't it a great feeling, thank you IP.

Nolawhodatchick - Congrats on the NSV! let us know how the shopping goes.

That sounds like a great idea! I may do that as well....I have a feeling there will be at least 6's and 8's left when I get off work haha!

I am currently at work and wearing a pair of slacks I haven't fit into for 2 years. I am also 1.5 down from my Monday WI and feeling fantastic. Not hungry either.

IIRC, in past years, Old Navy has offered their black friday specials online too, and I think you can probably also snag free shipping.

I can't wait until I am back down to a 2.

It's going to be an ups and downs kind of day...

The downs - after getting my car back from having the water pump and coolant lines replaced, it all of a sudden just wouldn't go even though the engine was revving when I pushed the gas pedal. I'm 99% sure it's low transmission fluid, but it gets complicated getting to the auto supply store, back to where my car is parked, etc. I'm trying not to freak out since if it's something WORSE than tranny fluid, most mechanics around here are closed till Monday. Deep breaths.

The ups - I did my WI this morning - down 3.2 lbs!!! That puts me in the 170s for the first time in six years!!! I think one of the kids stole my tape measure so I haven't checked measurements, but I am SO encouraged going into the holiday with a good loss!!

I'll keep my fingers crossed that it is an easy fix for your car.

Congrats on the weigh in!!! I chuckled about the comment that your kids stole the tape measure. Kids love playing with stuff that isn't a toy.

Congratulations!!! That's a wonderful loss.
