Some of the posts have the same victories as I have had.

Wedding ring fits again.

A shirt I bought for wearing with my band didn't fit I bought it from the clearance rack, it was a size 2x which I wore at the time, I didn't try it on. The buttons looked liked they would pop off and kill someone when I put it on at home. That shirt fits me with extra room now.

Having a pair of 34 waist jean shorts fit me like my old size 42's did- too tight but I got them on. I'm wearing 36's comfortably now. The 34's will fit soon.

Having to put extra holes in my belts, and not at the end to make it bigger, in the middle to make it smaller.

Buying all new riding gear for my motorcycle. My old size 42 protective pants were falling off of me, and I needed suspenders to hold them up. Size 36 now. My jacket was so big it was flapping in the wind. 2x/3x now changed for 1x with room underneath for layers depending on the weather conditions. .

I ran my first half marathon about a month ago, & didn't pass out, or have a heart attack. For real, I was scared I was walking into my funeral. Lol, but seriously, I completed my first half, & it's an amazing feeling. However the scale is actually higher than before I ran that. (Grumbles)

But I'm lower than my high school weight!

I've only been at this a little over a month. My husband has a fitness background, so we've been working out together. We text about meeting times throughout the day or, if I'm working out alone, he sends me some suggestions.

Today, I typed GUM into my iPhone. . . it auto-corrected to GYM. Just a little pat on the back that being active is becoming a lifestyle.

I used to LOVE pepsi. I would get up and drink pepsi for breakfast, and continue it all day. I slowed down my pepsi intake to only 1 per day about a month ago. Last week, I cut it completely. Yesterday, my hubby brought one home and I said to myself, "I'll drink the rest of his pepsi and it will be so good!" I took one sip, and didn't even want it. I left it sitting on the table, it did not taste good to me at all. I got a fresh glass of water instead.

- My Nan's engagement and eternity rings now fit on my fingers
- None of my pants fit me anymore
- One day I just got on the treadmill and just ran and ran for k's (I'd never run much more than 500m with out needing to stop)
- My favorite instructor at the gym came up to me and told me I look amazing and they are proud of me.
- Heaps of random people tell me that I look amazing or they're sorry they snubbed me as didn't even recognise me.
- Every time I go shopping and try things on everyone always says "That is to big you need a smaller size."
- When people take photos I don't have to delete them because i have 100 chins.
- My Dad told me he was proud of me and asked what happened to the rest of his daughter. (after years of him joking about my weight.)

I can fit comfortably into every pair of jeans in my closet (many are way too big) - even my "skinny" jeans.happy

Caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror in my work out clothes and noticed my thighs are smaller. Had to do a double take and yes, I'm sure they're smaller!!!
