  • I don't use public transport too often but yesterday I was on a packed bus for the first time in years. A lady sat next to me &....nothing happened. I didn't have to apologise, ineffectively shove myself up against the window & didn't have to cringe my way to the destination longing for the whole thing to be over. We…
  • Having moved long distance in December I'm now constantly meeting new folk who have no idea of my previous weight. Knew this would happen, knew it would feel a bit weird but think it's weird in a way I didn't anticipate! 1) Realised noone talked about "dieting" around me when I was morbidly obese (so, the majority of my…
  • Having moved long distance I am now meeting folk who only know me as I am & have no knowledge of my previous weight. My new & lovely next door neighbor asked me if I'd like to go to a Boogie Bounce exercise class with her... 1) In my previous life, noone would have thought to ask me to something like that 2) Even if anyone…
  • 100%! Jumpers, coats & big thermal socks make me audibly groan these days & I could weep for joy everytime I bring a new warm thing home! Folk are forever saying to me now "Oh, are you not staying...?" cos given the choice my coat will stay firmly on 😂
  • Over the past 2 days I've been kneeling on the floor predominantly as I've been painting furniture. Initially felt quite smug as I worked out some time ago how to combat my newly knobbly knees hurting while being on a hard surface. That was until I failed to see a pair of scissors & knelt on the handles with my left one.…
  • I moved long distance last week & as a result of the upheaval/stress over the past couple of months, my logging has been lacklustre to say the least! It appears that I may have put on 1-2lb (can't be certain as I normally weigh daily & have no idea if it's fat or water or what yet) which is an NSV itself....logging has…
  • Haha, it's okay, I didn't explain it very well at all so it's my fault! It is me...though the photo needs updating, which is crazy as it feels as if I only just took it! Thanks for your kind words, it's really difficult to accept myself how I am now I'm in a place I've never been before, even though there's so much "proof"…
  • Very much a fan of internet shopping!! Sometimes it's nice to go for a wee wander, see what's there & try things outside your usual style though. Clothes shopping is like a whole new world now 😮 Absolutely, very similar here in the UK too for sure! The hubs just meant vanity sizing or no, they are half the size of the…
  • Identify with this a fair bit! Amazing how smaller sizes are sold out & when I shop for clothes I do think when I'm pulling out these items (that are less than half the size I used to need) that anyone nearby might be thinking "pffft, who's she trying to kid??" 😆 Do tend to feel like an imposter & even when the label says…
  • @HDBKLM Thankyou & OH MY GOSH that is SUCH a great NSV! It's an amazing feeling when something goes from no chance to...okay....to PERFECT! Congratulations, hope you're rocking it with pride! I'm in a similar boat to you at the moment ...got around 20lbs til goal & the scale is very arbitrary with its shifting(tbf I've…
  • Thankyou so much...It's so very strange! We figured out afterwards we can also fit in one leg each face on too but we'll have to do photos of that another day! For some reason, the ones we took today with full on side view look really rude even though they're perfectly innocent 😂😂😂😂
  • Think this is my favourite NSV so far & they took some topping! Me & my lovely husband in jeans that fit me in August 2017.(and for the previous 10 years more or less) They are a UK size 22 & though they were loose around my waist, these ones were tight on my thighs & now button/zip around both of us! Not even stretchy…
  • Oh my gosh, you look so beautiful & you make a lovely looking couple! Congratulations on beginning to accept your hard work, know it's super hard to do at times ❤️
  • Haha! How funny...I'm half Spanish...perhaps there's something in it after all? 😂 Well done on your NSV...love it when that happens but I hope you will treat yourself to a new smaller size to show the shrinking derriere off! ❤️
  • Aww, your poor slender bottom...that does sound like an ouch moment! Can complete relate to being stronger in a different way...it's much more satisfying when you can lift/move something or even yourself due to working hard rather than the happenstance of your "heft". Think it's coming to terms with being at "the mercy" of…
  • As usual, I feel very similar to you my love! Though it's improving...think because folk keep doing things to test my own perception of me! A lot of the time I still feel obese, possibly because I've not reached goal yet but more likely because I've never NOT been obese before, really. Still get a fright when I catch my…
  • Haha! Love looking at other lassies...theyre so beautiful & pretty, no matter the shape. That sounds quite creepy typed out now I read it, but it's true! Peach....funny how that's the apparent beauty standard for the derriere...we should replace apple with peach, it's way cuter...just like the "apple" folk! Well! That's…
  • I'm finding it hard to come to terms with my smaller person fragility. Had to leave my wonderful job this week as I'm moving long distance (honestly, still a bit broken hearted 😭💔) & that meant lots of goodbye hugs. My entire life, I've been the heavier (and by default the "strongest") person so I've always been sensitive…
  • UK Size 10 jeans...got the trousers down, but denim is always a couple of months behind! I have NEVER been a size 10 on my bottom half before so I'm super excited!
  • Ahhh, you'll be beautiful no matter what shaped fruit you are haha! I'm definitely a pear (even when morbidly obese)but for some reason folk see hourglass a lot.... Always makes me want to drop to my knees dramatically & yell into the sky "NOT WITH THESE BOOBS!" 🤣
  • I've never really had any....perhaps during the first few weeks? My "click" moment was when I realised it was all about building good habits. Sounds simple (yet hard) & boring but in reality, it's the only way to go. Small steps regarding reducing calories, small steps increasing exercise, incrementally pushing myself…
  • Haha! Ahh, it's so strange how all of our bodies are so different! I've got through the grief of my boobs going down 2 cup sizes....I'm quite grateful as it means I can get smaller dresses that look good on top & hide the snacking derriere rather well. (Love me an A-line!) Feel your pain so much though because with certain…
  • Haha, I know right?? I'm convinced it's developed a conscious brain & sneaks all sorts of goodies! What other explanation could there possibly be for 2 clothing size differences between top half & bottom half? I'm in control of the top half but the derriere simply isn't upholding it's end of the bargain :wink:
  • Oh my goodness.... My hips & thighs have been on the shrink recently so I decided to see how far my husband's jeans would go up on me. This is not a drill, they go on, fasten & despite being too long they look pretty good...they're a size 30 waist!! My waist measured 39 inches when I began this journey last year...hips…
  • Congratulations! 100% I totally understand. Still not used to myself but it's getting slightly better now the changes aren't coming so thick & fast...it's more gradual. Found what helped me was changing my profile photos on everything quite frequently. Social media, phone wallpaper, laptop, fitness tracker...here... Sounds…
  • Friend was showing me some photos she'd taken & there was one of a lassie with her back to the camera. I thought....that's a pretty impressive derriere...who's that? Yep...twas I! My backside is the bane of my life, whether in my current shape or when I was obese. Felt like it was back there secretly snacking no matter…
  • "I think you'll look gaunt if you lose another 20lbs you know...." Translation: You've lost nearly 90lbs already & I don't have the discipline to lose 5lb...would love to have some of your perseverance! "You were quite big before" Translation: I have noticed you've lost quite a bit of weight - well done! "I couldn't be…
  • Can't believe some of the things I'm reading here...wow. I'm so sorry for everyone who has had their feelings hurt by eejits who I can almost guarantee were far from body perfect themselves.... Before I lost weight I never really had any comments. Now I get them all the time & for the most part, they are lovely, pure &…
  • I believe so. Life is incredibly hard & stressful for me just now. It's only the second seriously stormy time I've experienced since I began losing weight, so I don't feel particularly well equipped I must admit! I've wanted SO badly to "comfort" eat as I've always done, but when I sat down & really thought about it, I…
  • A customer was talking to me about cake today & I said that salted caramel was my favourite. She responded "Well, you don't look as if you eat much of it!" Knock me over with a feather! Folk who aren't aware of your large weight loss can be the most surprising. In a few weeks I'll be moving 300 miles away & noone at all…
