    @BethWallace1 you have come to the right place to get some support ! Welcome ! Do you have a tape measure ? If so take your measurements if you haven't already that way even without a scale you can still see your progress in inches as the months go by ! (Our walmart here has tape measures in the sewing dept for around and even under $2 sometimes)
    Can't wait for you to jump right in ! Weight loss begins in the kitchen the more eating habits you can change to healthy ones the better!

    I got a walk in yesterday! lol Beautiful weather, warmer, though I should have taken a pair of gloves because my fingers were froze by the time I got back - warm when I left, but as that sun went down, the temps rapidly dropped. Probably won't get one in today, but hopefully tomorrow and Friday as well. I need those walks!

    Now that lockdown has eased up a bit, I borrowed my son's car today and picked up some "new" (for me) clothes from Value Village (a used goods store) and a few things I found on Facebook Marketplace.

    Some 3/4 length sleeve light summer blouses - because I have nothing for this summer that fits :smiley: and I'm thinking I want to cover up these upper arms for awhile. And they look pretty good. Don't notice the wings whatsover!

    Even better, the summer bottoms - long shorts and some lighter jeans - I bought thinking they would fit come summer - actually fit now! A bit snug, but they fit.

    A year ago I was wearing size 24 jeans. Zipping up size 10 pants absolutely floored me.

    I am glad you were able to find some new clothes...I put on some capris this morning that are hanging on me like a sack...the p.j.s I wore last night were sliding off my hips this morning and I had to tie my sneakers tighter...I never knew losing weight could be such a pain in the *kitten*!...but believe me, I will take it any day over stuffing myself in too tight clothes!....I really need to buy some clothes but I keep thinking I will wait until I lose a few more pounds!...

    I wish wish wish I had those problems! Good job ladies! I can’t wait to post a NSV soon..hoping to go down atleast one size in pants but I haven’t lost much inches even with a 30lb loss😒

    You might be surprised at how quickly that happens, though!

    I was like you. I used to be a size 26/28 in jeans, and I had lost 50 pounds and still comfortably fit in my 26/28 jeans. Was kinda disappointed that I hadn't really lost inches yet.

    Then suddenly, it was like it all caught up to me. I lost another 40 pounds, and the inches seemed to melt off. I'm now in size 22/24 jeans, but the 24 are honestly starting to get almost way too loose on me, so, I might be able to start attempting 20s here soon.

    And I started in 22Ws, and went pretty quick down to 16 straight and lost 50 pounds in the process. Now I'm plateaued, but I'm moving more so I hope that things unstick soon.

    For the first time ever, my husband and I were able to cuddle up laying on the couch together!

    We were both on our sides, my husband behind me with his chest up against my back, and I was in front on the outside/edge of the couch, and we both fit and snuggled like that for about two hours while watching Netflix!

    It was so nice

    That's Awesome ! Way to go ! I can't wait till we can comfortably do that !

    My NSV is I was able to do the crunches at Barre class last night. When a month ago I struggled to do 1 crunch.

    I got a walk in yesterday! Beautiful evening, even if it did cloud over.

    I'm not going to get one in today, unfortunately - too much going on. Church tonight plus I need to get to town during my lunch break because I want to make an angel food cake for mom's birthday dinner tonight and realized I don't have any swerve powdered sugar....
