My clothes keep falling down and I just bought jeans two sizes smaller. The problem is i can't see it.14

LOL - I've found sort of the opposite: My keys used to stay in the capacious pocket of my size 14W (or bigger) jeans. But the pockets in my size 4 misses jeans are so much smaller, even in the same brands, that the keys keep working their way out. I have to attach them to a belt loop, or I lose them!
Yeah, I imagine when I'm wearing appropriately sized jeans, they keys will not be lost... have belt loop attachment on standby.2
A bittersweet moment today. I no longer need to undo the button and zip on my favourite jeans to get them on or off.17
I managed to fit comfortably into my next two pairs of "goal jeans" this morning - down from something like a 20W (not entirely sure; I just used to buy cheap things from the Plus dept. with at least one X in the size!) to a 15/16 standard. They are a bit baggy around the butt and thighs, but a smaller size won't do up over my fat belly yet! (Seriously considering looking at maternity jeans just so I can have something that fits better on the legs!) I only have one more pair of jeans and a couple of pairs of casual pants that don't fit, now.
And secondly, I'm finally starting to see a smaller woman in the mirror and to like what I see! Sometimes I still think I look just as fat as ever, but more often than not these days I can see how much I've changed. I think it really helps that my waist is becoming more obvious, it makes me feel much less of a blob!
I still have a fair way to go, but I can better appreciate how far I've already come.
(A scale-related victory - I'm now the lowest weight I can remember being for about 20 years!)

Great! I've been doing the same thing. I have a lot to get rid of. Some I'm sad to see go because they are clothes I really love. Trying on clothes and finding them way too big makes me better see how much smaller I am now.13
I've got a couple.
1. I can do up my size 14 goal pants. They don't fit well enough to wear in public but they're getting close.
2. My hips are wider than my waist. It always used to be the other way around...28
I actually looked at myself in the mirror before my shower tonight and I didn't hate what I saw. In fact I was pretty proud and I know I can do it!23
One of my all time fav dresses is two big to wear to work... according to some colleagues. I think they are right.15
I'm short to begin with, but also have shorter arms and legs and a longer torso. I've always had a problem getting tall boots to zip up over my calves. Last week I ordered a really cute pair of black riding boots that came in "wide calf"--they came yesterday and not only did they zip right up, I could stick my hand all the way down inside! I couldn't believe it.
Got 'em packed up to return for the regular calf size:)29

Course, then this morning happens...I get out of bed in my boxer-briefs and a non-baggy Tshirt and I walk past my mirror and am startled. Holy *kitten*. My legs are so thin - except for all the muscle. I can see my thighs flex and my hips look great and my package isn't LITERALLY in a shadow under my gut. And my gut is invisible from this angle...and I see my shoulders and arms and chest starting to form the lines of what will be a very, very attractive man. Someday. The process IS the victory.
Holy hell man! Radiate your sexy self from the inside and sure as shizza your outside will match that! but I get it ....working hard and you want to totally LOVE what you see in the mirror. Keep pushin!!!!
I love that, but that never really works. I don't want to be the only one who thinks I'm sexy - make sense? I'm tired of telling myself how good I am. I got it. I believe it. Now I'm ready to move on - hence the work. you.6
I JUST RAN FOR 20 FECKING MINUTES WITHOUT STOPPING. 5 weeks ago I struggled running (jogging) for 60 seconds.44
had someone at work tell me I look amazing in my jeans...the same jeans I couldn't get into until a week ago...yay, such a good feeling!!!19
I have been able to cut way back on over the counter pain relievers because i am not in pain every second of the day anymore!38
I was almost late to work today because I couldn't find a skirt that wasn't falling off of me27
Not really recent, but recently realized - chub rub is gone. I don't remember the last time I had that excruciating inner thigh chafing. Good riddance!29
Did my first back squats today with 80 lbs with the trainer WITHOUT the box. WOOT WOOT. This was a good morning.17
I had to clean out my closet again last night because so many of my clothes have gotten big enough that they're starting to look sloppy.16

I can so relate! I bought jeans, leggings, and even a SWEATER from Costco recently! Size 10 jeans, size large leggings, and a large sweater that probably should have been a medium - so very excited!!
