    That a whole new area of colors in your wardrobe will be welcomed and look GREAT on you.

    This made me so sad because it sounds like someone bullied you and called you awful names. Even if they didn't, you did to yourself. I'm glad you're losing weight, but I hope you see that you were always worthy of wearing any color you wanted no matter your size. What color looks good on you has nothing to do with poundage. And elephants, pigs, and bears are all wonderful intelligent creatures after all. Be kind to yourself, OK?

    I know this is an old quote, but thank you for the comment and support. Need more like this on MFP and face to face. Great example.

    Anytime! Be kind to yourself!

    ^^^Hahaha I'm glad I'm not the only one. Every time I lose 5 lbs it seems like "just another 5 pounds and I'll be there"... Then lose 5 more and still looks like I need another 5

    Me too!

    Wanted to make this thread for motivationial purposes more than anything but they don't all have to be super positive! More of what came as a surprise. I'll start..

    - how much confidence it will actually bring, especially when strangers start treating you like royalty all of a sudden!

    - Sitting (particularly in baths) and laying (particularly in beds) will become ever increasingly uncomfortable.

    - how vain you will become! I can't walk past a mirror without checking how I look nowadays!

    Your turn!
