An awesome thing for me. I uploaded my pic to mybodygallery (which I check out when I feel like I'm comparing myself to photoshopped models too much) and I got some of the most views!

School has been a killer this semester! Taking 6 classes + my job has kept me so busy. But my weight hit 150 the one night and I realized that if I wasn't careful I could undo all my hard work! So here I am again!

Time to revive an old thread. I have had lots of little achievements in the past few months...

- collarbones ... very visible
- shoulders ... starting to take shape
- shoulder blades ... no longer covered by fat
- calves ... very formed (bigger than I want but no longer jiggly)
- thighs ... muscles visible during workouts
- hands ... you can see the tendons working in them
- neck ... my work id badge hangs so low it gets caught under my desk now sometimes due to my neck being smaller
- belly ... it's my biggest work in progress but it is definitely changing too

What little changes are you all seeing in your bodies?

Great thread! April thanks for reviving it. Awesome job on your recent achievements.

I have a great one. Last night my sister, cousin and I went shopping at Value Village (thrift store) and I found a great pair of jean capris (Gloria Vanterbilt designed, no less!) SIZE 15/16 Not only did I buy them, I left the store wearing them LOL! What a great feeling and I'm looking forward to many more to come. :

Great one Cate! I myself recently got into size 16W and had the awesome realization when searching for jeans at KMart that I couldn't get them in the plus size section any more! I had to cross over to the 'other side'!!!

Wow! That's a great feeling isn't it, although probably a little hard to wrap your head around at first LOL!!

I had a job interview on Wednesday, and because I've been losing weight I have very few 'casual nice' outfits and had zero job interview outfits, so I hit the consignment stores. Being a smaller size, it was SO much easier to find nice clothes instead of just settling for whatever fits. I found a great skirt that was a (stretchy) size 8 and fit like a dream, and a classy shirt, size MEDIUM!! I was thrilled! Driving back from the interview, which went well, I was stopped at a red light and a guy started crossing the street in front of my car. He looked. Then he continued walking...then looked again After a few more steps, he looked...AGAIN I'm not even accustomed to second looks, let alone third looks!
