    Nobody told me how much my libido would increase.

    I feel like a hormonal teenager again.

    Holy cow I am not the only one then. It's insane the difference. My wife and I both want it more often. My wife has lost 30 pounds or so and I am 73 down. Not only do we do it more but it's insanely better quality. That should be enough motivation for anyone.

    Amen to all that. Some times I wear a grin all day and I am just in an all-around better mood.

    That your clothes will get longer when you lose weight. I tried on a dress this morning that was a little loose, but wearable, but the length had changed and I just hated how it fell on me.

    I find jeans shopping hard, I've shrunk out of 4s and a lot stores only go to 4. I found some 2s at Goodwill that I like. I have actually found dresses in the Junior's section that fit me fairly well, as I'm also petite. I bought an XS dress at Target I have been so unhappy with because it's just big everywhere. Not like I can buy any smaller in women's clothes.

    It is a bit of a pain, but do you have a friendly local seamstress or tailor?

    There is only so much they can do, but it's always worth asking if it's a favourite that would otherwise have to go.

    Well here are things that surprise me being down 73 pounds, 9 more to goal. The strangest is I'm cold more often, I mean cold in situations I would not have been before. I used to wear a regular old flannel all winter, I'm already looking for warmer clothes and jackets/coats because I know I'm gonna be freezing.


    LOL... yeah I went to Florida a couple times for work and I turned the heat on in my hotel room. In July. In Florida. lol
    In spite of everyone saying how hot it is there, it was 20 degrees cooler than it was in Texas. so I was pretty cold.

    I am absolutely freezing this morning. I mean this is real trouble for the winter if I'm this cold in summer still. :'(

    Ok, so I understand that the boobs would get smaller. In a way that was a relief. But why do they have to look so awful! There really is no discernible shape to them unless I have a bra on.

    Did they improve over time? X

    Winter is hard.. but at least you have the excuse to layer up. One good go to product is thermal underwear/leggings. You can wear them under jeans.

    Very true, I do think layering clothes is super cute, especially with a nice jacket. I just realized I need a new winter coat this year unless I want to look like a kid wearing her mother's clothes.

    So this one is definitely TMI.
    But being around 35lbs in (and a lot to go), it's my time of the month. So I needed to wear my underwear in bed. But they were uncomfortable. They've gotten to a looseness where they're fine normally, but in bed, they're not clinging to me enough. It's unpleasant!

    Completely relatable. ;)

    I'm 20 pounds down and I have noticed an increase. I still have 180 pounds to get to the top of what is considered a healthy weight range for me. What is it going to be like then? :o Is mine naturally higher and I've been smothering it with fat? It was noticeably higher 38 pounds down too before I went back up another 60 pounds.

    I live in Northern New England, and what I recommend if you can find some are silk thermal underwear.
