Shock. As I were getting dressed to go to the party yesterday, I put on those tight jeans that use to be so tight that I had to furnish a real effort to button them, when I would finely get them buttoned, I would have to wear loose tops to hide the fat hanging around my waist. Yesterday I slide myself in them so easily, I didn't even have to unbutton them. They fitted me so perfectly, no fat hanging around me. So I'm not going to continue the war with the scale anymore because et is getting me stressed out, even if I'm still not seeing a real result on the scale, My clothes are fitting me a lot better

The other day my boyfriend was complaining in the other room that there was something wrong with his jeans pockets, that they were "gone". I asked if the pockets had ripped open, but he said it was like the lining was folded up and he couldn't get them unfolded.

I went to look and saw that he was wearing the pair of jeans I had just put in the wash for the last time before giving them away because they are now too big for me. They just have little coin pockets in the front. Too funny.

congratulations! I stay off the scale because I don't think weight is a good indicator... I like taking measures (waisline, etc) or simply trying on clothes that used to be too tight Smile

Well done!

(As a point of clarification I only had one pair of trousers that fit me when this happened, hence my reaction): A couple of weeks ago I pulled out my trousers from the dryer and thought "Oh ***t they've shrunk"...

They hadn't shrunk, I'm just that much smaller than I was 6 months ago.

And on Saturday I bought a full set of clothes in a high street retailer. I've not done that since I was in my mid-teens.

42" jeans(25/01/2013) 40"(28/02/2013) 38"(20/03/2013) 36"(25/05/2013)
Down from 60" waist jeans since June 21st 2012.

Still keeping to my 26" jeans, but they are too tight for comfort. too many tasty things in the US, and over Xmas.

Onwards and Downwards! Smile

6 months on I'm now used to buying clothes in major retailers. And I can even buy clothes in charity (thrift) shops with ease. That's just mind-boggling for someone who hasn't been able to buy clothes easily on the high street for decades.

Congrats to all of you with your clothing success stories! I walked into an Old Navy this weekend and it was so exciting to buy XL tops and not have to buy a size with a number in it! (1X, 2X). To me, that is my first clothing step towards what I consider a normal size.
