    I ordered 2 pairs of dress pants online; one size 8 that I was hoping would fit well in about a month, and one size 6 that would be my "goal" pants, maybe by thanksgiving. The 8s turned out to fit perfect, I will wear them Tuesday to work. and the 6s were still tight, but they zipped and fastened which is way more than I had expected. At the end of June I started out in size 12 (from the same store).

    I haven't been able to do my normal workout routine, since most of my equipment is still packed in boxes from my recent move. But I have made sure to get my steps in everyday with my FitBit to make up for it. Before I wouldn't have even cared and just flopped on the couch with junk food and a movie!

    I also just checked out the pool at my new complex for the first time and my first thought was "I wonder if they allow people to swim laps?"
    Good job girl! Way to go :)

    Thanks!! :smile:

    I kept getting sweat in my eyes when I was working out today.
    I've never worked out that hard before.

    I just went for a yearly checkup. Since the last one was 2 years ago, I got really good news. My total cholesterol went from 236 to 162. My LDL (this is the bad cholesterol) went from 143 to 103!

    Bought a size 8 pair of jeans. Size 8! I haven't worn that size in 24 years.

    I wasn't going to post because it was a small victory. But then I thought what the heck. I lost 2 inches on my waist 1 1/2 on my chest 1 inch in my hips and 1 inch on my thighs! Yay

    I wore pants that I haven't worn in a while (they fit, just was wearing other items) and they felt pretty baggy in areas compared to the last time I wore them.

    I did 155 squats PR

    Did a bunch of different weight exercises today too. In a shirt this weekI noticed my arms looked smaller, more fabric.

    Went clothes shopping yesterday to get some shirts, and the larges were all way too big, like to the point where they're ill-fitting and baggy in the neck and shoulders, had to switch out for mediums which fit correctly. :)

    Non Scale Victory...anything that is positive due to your hard work and food changes, that's not related to the scale.....Mine? I fit into the size 5s that have been waiting for me......FINALLY!

    Putting on a company shirt that I had stuffed in my closet when I received it because it was so tight it was uncomfortable and it fit!!

    Just before we went on our walking holiday I bought a new sports/rain coat for daily use. For years I would buy in the men's section as with a short back and wide hips nothing in the female section fit over my hips. I now have a longer coat to my mid thigh, female area and a size M. I could fit a size down, but then it would not have fitted with a wintersweater, which is a very important consideration.

    Second one; I walked Hadrian's Wall. A lot harder than our long distance walk last year. Even my husband (very fit runner) felt it was at the top end of his abilities. It was hard for me, but I did do it and with about 5 kg on my back the whole way (135 km plus)

    Fitting into a skin tight red dress that I bought 2 years ago and couldn't fit and receiving several compliments on it. Best feeling ever!

    Beat my personal best time at running 5k again today :)

    I just tried on a stretchy (stretch waist included) pair of size 16 jeans that were so busted the seams in the front are splitting and the chub rub had worn them down so bad that the entire back of my right leg is fully exposed. They were LOOSE, no lower belly bulge and super roomy in the back. I also tried on an old college tank top which was super baggy when my gut and boobs used to stretch it to the max. Glad my hard work is finally showing up and out.
