I have now reached 44 pounds lost since January 19th,2011. I needed shorts because the weather has been beautiful out,upper 80's all this week, and all of my shorts from last summer were a size 16. Went and grabbed a pair of 10's just for the hell of it, and lo and behold, they freaking fit!! Woo Hoo!! Then I decided to be more daring and try on some sleeveles medium shirts, and those fit as well, and looked good on my nice and toned arms. I am so freaking happy!! I met my april goal before the end of this month!! I can't wait til I am in single digits,but I will take this victory an do a happy dance!! I would never have dreamed I would look good in a sleeveless top,I was always so self concious of my arms, they were huge. They still have some more flab to come off, but not like they were last summer. I have a huge burst in my confidence now, like it was a no no to take my picture, now I want those taken!! I even went down to a 34, girls you know what I am talking about lol. Before I was a 38. Got to get this last 41 pounds off til I go to maintance phase, but man I feel freaking amazing!!

October 2011 - 125 (Ultimate goal)
As of October 10th, 2011 - 128 (sheww almost there!!) -

Reason: added more to title
I can totally relate to how great it feels to suddenly realize you are a size you next thought you'de be. It is an out of body experience. "Hey wait a minute... is that really me????" "Yup - that's me alright!!!!"
Terrific! I can imagine you with a big smile and dancing around in the dressing room.
Oh, how good that feel! I used to embarass about my belly. In severals sperate occasion, people ask if I was pregnant. "Uh, how dare you ask that", I thought. But now, I wear short and tank top, walk tall and confident b/c I don't have a "pregnant" belly.
Wonderfull, Keep it up. You will lose the rest of it as you plan.
You can definitely see the difference in your face, neck, and arms in the shots you've given. You look great! (And I love your bunny-ears headband!)
