I was never a huge fan of thrift shopping, and I avoided rummage and yard sales entirely because I could never find anything nice in my size. Now that I'm smaller, I am amazed at what fun, cute clothes I can find for only a couple of dollars! I'm thrilled! My wardrobe is MUCH happier and my wallet barely notices!

Yes we do! I got a tipped hat the other day and I nearly fell down with happiness.

Probably TMI, but I almost jumped up and down when I fit into and bought a 2-hook bra from the "regular" bra section this weekend! I hadn't seen that band or cup size in a LONG time.

Being able to buy interview suits from the "regular" section, so I can feel confident in something other than plain black, which is all they ever seem to have in plus sizes.

And yes, thank you to all you men in the world who take the time to politely look and smile! Every time it happens I'm like "Wha??! ME???", and that'll keep a girl going for days. It's invaluable to receive family/husband support, but total strangers are a whole different ballgame of positivity.

This is a great thread.

I've JUST started my journey today, but here is what I'm looking forward to:

- Getting Back into my old thin clothes
- Not wearing old lady fat clothes and buying some new hip things that only thin people can wear
- Better self esteem
- Lower blood pressure

I still have a lot of weight to go, but since I've lost weight I can now fasten the seatbelt in my car. It went from being too tight, to fitting and cutting off my ability to breathe, to fitting fine and not being noticeable at all.

I fit behind the car steering wheel, without the wheel touching my belly. In fact, there's plenty of room down there.

I can go on my three hour grocery shopping trips (so many places to buy great veggies!) and not get tired or sore. Before, a half hour trip to Kroger's would make my back hurt and my feet sore.

I can chase a two year old and a five year old around the park and not get worn out or tired the way I would have before.

I now actually enjoy exercising. It gives me energy! Before, I was just exhausted and sore.
