I know what you mean about the bulge! I hate it. That's the first place I gain and lose weight, it's annoying.

Another small victory of mine: I fit into a pair of pinstripe slacks I bought when I was 18 and haven't been able to fit into for 4 years.

That's great! It was pouring rain here the other day and just for the heck of it I dug out my old Goretex rain jacket. It's only a "regular" XL and I though, no way is thing going to fit. Ha ha--that puppy zipped right up .

Regards,
Michael

PS My nice Levis jean jacket, also an XL won't "quite" allow me to button the last two buttons (that's where my "bulge" is the worst) but it won't be long!

I've noticed little things like my chin(s) are getting smaller - I noticed that in a photo, actually. The main thing that keeps me motivated is my clothes getting bigger. Every time I put on a pair of pants that used to be tight that now are loose, I feel encouraged to keep on doing what I've been doing!

I guess the thing I appreciate most right now is that I no longer have to HEAVE myself into a sitting position on my bed, with my back against the wall (favorite email-reading position). The double chin is gone. I can sit comfortably with my knees flexed (Indian style) without feeling like I can't breathe. So something is happening. LOL!

A couple little successes this weekend--walked down to check the mail and actually jogged back up the drive (about 100 yards). And tried on a pair of my size 40 Wrangler jeans and they not only buttoned but zipped right up. Still a little snug so I'll stick with the 42s for a while longer, but I COULD wear them.

Regards,
Michael
