    LOL just realised my profile pic has me on honeymoon in one of the aforementioned dresses I can now wear again. My husband nearly fell off his feet when I came out in it yesterday.

    When I first lost weight i lost about 25 pound, the scale was showing the weightloss, even my clothing size, but not my measurements?!?!?!

    A friend hugged me tightly on Saturday and then was running her hands over my back poking my rips, she was like 'you're skinny! O.o.' lol and I figured out to tumble dry my work trousers so they shrink as they otherwise nearly fall down now :D- don't want to go and buy any new ones just yet.

    My jeans are now too long! I was constantly pulling up my underwear from the inside of my pants. I got new p.j.'s and underwear for my birthday, and it's a good thing someone else bought them . When I opened them I thought, "these will NEVER fit, they're size mediums". Guess what, they fit! Oh it's so nice to not have my underwear falling down, and to feel like I look nice in my p.j.'s.

    I am smaller and in much better shape than I ever was in the Army. I even help people in my husband's company with losing pounds.

    A couple of years ago, I succeed to get from 95 to 68 kg (I took it back since) thanks to many runs in my favorite sport suits: I was once running and the pants went down in front of a 3rd age couple :blushing: . I catched it at my knees and got the elastic changed for the next session

    Train and subway seats seem bigger. My guitar straps all needed tightening. A booth in a restaurant is no longer an anxious worry of will I fit between the seat and the table. Strangers talk to me more.

    Here's a weird one: photos. When I see pictures of myself at the moment, sometimes I really perceive the loss, sometimes I am amazed how big I still look. ( 41 lb down) - very fluid self-image.

    I get this too. In photos taken on the same day I can feel I look both tiny and huge. Logically I know I am a 'normal' weight and my clothes are all four sizes smaller, but it just doesn't compute all the time.

    I've had to switch my wedding ring from my ring finger, to my middle finger. If I wear it on my ring finger I'm scared that I'll lose it due to it being so loose!

    I now look like the me that I thought I did. This caused motivation issues along the way because the picture Iheld of myself in my head wasn't as big as the reality so I feel I've reached an even keel.

    I also have that problem with my rings, even worse when my hands are cold, they slip right off

    Exactly this!
    In my head (and sometimes looking in the mirror) I do not see the mass that appears say, when I'm caught on camera. It's usually a shock to see my true size. In my head, I'm a bit overweight. In reality it's 70lbs or so.

    I apparently have very elastic underwear. I keep reading about underwear falling off. After a 31 lb loss, my underwear isn't saggy and doesn't threaten to fall down. In fact, it fits the way it always has. I know I look smaller and I can see that my jeans are now saggy in the *kitten* where they used to be very tight. Maybe I have magic underwear?

    Mine are magic too. I've lost 58 lbs, down a couple of pant sizes and still my undies stay up
