    I knew I was succeeding when I put on my shirt and it hung straight down from by boobs, not my belly, when I could take off my formerly tight jeans with out unsnapping or unzipping them. 25 pounds down 50 more to go...

    When I feel confident trying on (and buying!) skinny jeans and the stretchy tight workout pants.

    I knew I was losing weight when I was finally able to wrap and tuck a towel around me after bathing and when I was able to cross my legs and relax

    I knew I was losing weight when I was able to cross my legs without tugging on my jeans to help my leg over the other.. and the leg didn't just slip right off!!!

    This! I'm still excited about this a couple weeks after realizing it.

    I knew I was losing weight when I could pull my jeans off my hips without undoing the buttons.

    When my snug but comfy workout pants started getting loose.

    When my bras started getting more comfortable.

    When I could see my cheekbones for the first time in years.

    When my rings slid on and off with little effort.

    When I realized being on top was easier than it had been in a long time ;)

    I knew I was loosing weight when I didnt have to unbutton my pants to go the bathroom lol

    Hahahhaahha me too.

    I knew I was losing weight when I needed a belt to keep my jeans from going down.

    I knew I was losing weight when the frames for my eye glasses started falling off my face.

    I knew I was losing weight when I didn't feel my love handles roll and collapse when I take off my bra.

    I knew I was losing weight when my husband complimented me on not snoring anymore!!!

    Me too! Though my husband would tell me that my snoring was like a purring kitten, I was unhappy knowing that I was snoring whenever I slept on my back.

    Also, I hardly ever have heartburn. I don't know if it's from my 12 lb weight loss or from not stuffing myself full at dinner!

    I knew I was losing weight when I put on some old gym clothes and it looked like this:

    I knew I was losing weight when my cardigan started to slip down off my shoulders and pool around the tops of my arms when I was walking! One of these days it's going to slide right off me, lol.

    1.I knew I was losing weight when child's pose felt more comfortable.
    2. I knew I was on the right track when I am thinking when is the next time I "get" to work out, instead of "have" to work out. 3.I knew I was becoming the gym rat I always wanted to be when I get upset or disappointed when a class is cancelled.
    4. I know I will reach goal because I have had my a-ha moment.

    I knew I was on the right track when I stopped having cravings for junk food. I've only lost 3 pounds so far, so my journey is just only beginning. But for me, this is huge. I always struggled with fast food and junk food. Way to go everyone! (:

    I knew I was losing weight when I ran out of holes on my belts, when I got in those trousers I'd bought 10 years ago (horrid but they were even lose on me!), slim cut shirts fitted me and I had to drop two sizes in jeans. But most of all, it was getting back my mojo!

    When I could wrap the towel all the way around my body and it stayed on no problem!!!

    When I put on a pair of my lounging capri sweats and the synched calf part was loose (and the waist).
    When the larger pair of jeans I just bought began falling down when I walked.
    When I started to drown in my old shirts that used to be snug. (Went from XL/XXL to L)
    When I no longer was so depressed to shop for clothes because the larger sizes were so limited and sometimes I didn't even fit those.
    When I no longer needed to shop for a size 16. I fit into 12s and some 10s!
    When I could wear the necklace in my profile pic again. It got too snug it felt like a choker. (I've lost about 3" in my neck)
