my transformation
You look great hon! Way to go! I'm hoping to get where you are, and I'm so relieved to see that you did it over a couple of years, not in 5 months like you always read in those ladies magazines! Gives me some hope that I'll get there eventually!

What do you have to be thankful for in life
1. Woke up on this side of the grass yet again!
2. School year is almost over.
3. Coffee
4. Under 200 pounds and staying under.
5. Lots of fabric to sew.
6. Beautiful day!
7. More coffee
8. Wonderful husband! (seriously-he's awesome!)
9. Delightful son!
10. Goofy cats that always make me smile.

There's SO much more but then I'd be typing all day!

He may think it superficial, but if you approach it from a health perspective he might be more responsive. 20 pounds is just enough to increase your risk for a lot of overweight/obesity related illnesses (I take a handful of pills a day to try to take care of those very same illnesses, so I can assure you while it might not be happening right now, it may well happen in the future). Taking of 20 pounds is a lot easier than taking of 40 or more, and the longer that weight stays on you, the more likely you are to gain extra weight to go with it. I did hear a doctor say something one time about behavioral issues that applies to just about everyone-the first and automatic reaction of most humans, when told to behave, is to misbehave harder. Keep throwing "no thanks" in his direction when he wants you to eat this stuff, and it not only gets easier for him to hear, but it gets easier for you to say. Someone else does not get to decide whether you are happy with your weight, only you can decide that.

Weight training will help perk up the muscles that hold up your breasts, so they'll look better-I wont' say bigger, but better works, and a good bra does as well! I only went down one cup size when I lost weight a few years ago, from DDD's to DD's. I think if you do the weight training on your chest and don't lose too fast you'll probably be able to keep your D's, especially if it's a very full D.

Calf Muscles and Trouser legs (for those that have lost 100lb+)
Definitely try a boot cut-you only need enough room to skip over the calves, and some boots are slimmer than others. Best bet is to get all of the ones in your size off the rack and try on all of them. Due to the way garments are cut in factories, sometimes the same size tag will go on jeans with radically different fit (hey, they have to learn to use the machine sometime, right?) The way they're cut is a big stack of lengths of fabric are wheeled over on a flat bed table on wheels, and brought to a machine that looks like...well it actually is, in fact...a kind of band saw. Unless the stack stays perfectly vertical, the size that's cut on the top of the stack will differ from the size cut on the bottom, in spite of the fact that the top piece has the correct drafted size drawn on it. The lower leg is usually smaller thus making the stack harder to handle and accuracy suffers. (it takes an experienced cutter to keep it entirely accurate and those cutters usually work on the high end lines that the company makes-it's why the pricier lines of a department store have more consistent sizing)
