    Okay so this isn't the cleanest scenerio but I knew I was losing weight when I became "easier to throw around" during sex. The hubby said so. :wink:
    Nothing to be ashamed of, a sign of health in every sense! Good for you!

    I knew I was losing weight when I bent down to take off my shoes and my ring nearly flew off my finger and rolled across the room, I knew it was loose but didn't realize it would fall right off.

    I remember a lot of these things. I lost 97 pounds and then had a major tragedy in my life, took my eye off the ball and gained 80 back. Think I'm ready to start down again and will use this thread for encouragement.

    I finally realized I was on the right track when I realized my paint sizes went from 42 to 40.. and I could slide them off without unbuttoning... Then after picking up some 38's again I can slide them off without undoing them.. Now. my original jeans are able to fall off if I don't put a belt on... .. Love reading theses...

    It's annoying, right? Even though at the same time it's amazing!

    When I mistook my daughter's shirts for one of my own and pulled it on. It actually fit, which would not have happened in the past.

    I knew I was losing weight when:

    my jeans is baggy and would fall down if i dont use a belt.
    all my blouse is loose and looks baggy

    i can wear my 'skinny' skirt that i bought at at the start of my journey

    i can now wear size m and its still loose enough.. (i used to be size xl)

    1st 3 months, people are commenting how im glowing. now, at 6 month, my mom is forcing me to buy new clothes for the family gathering because my old clothes is too big.

    i feel weird while walking because my thigh doesn't collide much like before..

    I knew it when I could no longer fit in anything in the plus size section! That was the BEST feeling!
    I knew it when I kept having to hold my pants up when I walked.
    I knew it when I saw older pictures of myself and couldn't believe that was ever me!
    Also, when I stopped being hot all the time and actually would start complaining about being cold.

    I knew I had lost weight when I didn't recognize myself on the CCTV at my local quickie mart.

    -When the size 26 jeans that I had to do lunges in to loosen them up after washing were too big.
    -When I could see the top of my thighs because my gut wasn't so much in the way anymore.
    -When the circumference of my hips/stomach wasn't the same amount of inches as my height.
    -When I could run up a flight of stairs and not keel over gasping for breath at the top.

    & I'm only a little shy of being half way to goal. I can't imagine how much bigger that list will be when I get there...

    The things we acclimate to when we are overweight; you really don't realize how much the little things change.
