Height: 5'6"

Talking 58 lbs lost!!!!!!

I joined weight watchers in January and since i have lost 58 lbs!! I feel so great about myself. I am only a few points away from being inside the "normal weight range" for my height! Im really excited to be "normal" instead of "overweight" and when i started i was "obese" My first goal is to get down to 150 and after that i'll just keep lossing untill i like how my body looks. Im thinking 130lbs, but we'll see. I went shopping recently (actually i go shopping A LOT because im growing out of my clothes so often) but i bought a pair of PJ shorts at Old Navy.... size medium! and i got one of those long tank tops... size L!!! I think my jeans/shorts/skirts is like 13 maybe even an 11 now. The thing i love most and hate most about lossing weight is buying cute smaller clothes and then growing out of them within the month. Its getting VERY Expensive! I was feeling good so i thought id make a post, good luck everyone!

Congratulations that is wonderful. I can't wait until I reach the normal weight section for my height.

You are almost to your goal, keep going for more success.

Cherry, good for you!! I'll bet you'll look fabulous at 130. (okay, I have no idea how tall you are... )
I was a BABE at 128 (I'm 5'-2").
I'm really happy for you.

I treid to find a smiley that was apporopriate for shopping, none found but here's you speeding off to the mall for some new clothes. Better go fast becasue it's falling right off you It's such a great feeling to wear smaller clothes. I can't imagine buying anything medium So tell us now how you did it. What's your secret to success?

Wow! I am so happy for you! The only thing that comes to mind is that for once you are not "growing out" of your clothes, you are shrinking out of them. I dream of just being able to get back into some of my cute clothes that I used to wear. I still have them because I could not stand to admit defeat and get rid of them. They are packed neatly away in a bag in my basement just waiting on me! Enjoy your victory, but don't forget how you got there! That is what I did and the next thing that I knew, I was back to where I started again! Twice!

Congratulations on the smaller sizes. It does feel fantastic. It can also be expensive. I have found a consignment shop in my area that is great for getting some cute things to use while I am still losing. This helps a lot on the budget. I got to where I was losing sizes so fast that it was hard to spend much money on clothes knowing they'd soon be too big. But, it is a great feeling. WTG

Awesome job! Yep, think all of us that have been successful at weightloss have the same issue. I call it shopping for "disposible clothes". That means, trying to find clothes that are not too expensive, that I won't mind giving to Good Will or the likes a month or two down the road. Let's just say I'm happy to do it! I never liked clothes shopping before, and am becoming quite the shopper these days! Its much more fun when you actually fit into the clothing opposed to wanting to ( try ) to hide in it!

Enjoy!

Susan

I loved your quote about having to buy smaller clothes, but you have to say you are shrinking out of your clothes. Not growing out of them! Great job and keep shrinking out of your clothes!!
