Talking Little fun size me is now in a 12

I started this journey wearing a size 16 pants, XL tops, and 38 D bra. I went down to a 14 about a month ago. I went down to a large top. The other day I went to put on my 14's that were just bought and they were falling off my hips. I went to use a belt because I really can't afford to keep buying clothing everytime I go down a size. The belt wouldn't even hold them up. I figured okay, is time again. I discovered a great clothing secret that makes a lot of sense if you you are steady losing weight and have a budget to work with. I discovered Goodwill. I went there to today and bought 3 pairs of slacks (size 12) a long sleeve shirt, and I even bought a sleeveless top for the same price I would have spent for jeans and top in a conventional store. So I am happy to say that I wear a 12 now, which I haven't been since my youngest was born 9 years ago, I can feel comfortable wearing a sleeveless top, which I never would have done 2 months ago. I am getting "guns" lol. I can almost fit in a medium, and I dropped a cup size. That would be my motivation right there, getting to buy all the cute clothes again that I couldn't wear before. I am loving this! My goal size at the end of this long journey is a size 7-8, and then all I gotta do is maintain. Good luck to everyone on this journey and I look forward to coming on these boards and seeing the progress everyone makes, and I will continue to be on these boards for the rest of my healthy life. Sorry, feeling sentimental after being able to buy a 12 and it fit comfortably south breathing room.

Well done. Good will is great for those transitional clothes and it's a good place for donating the too big clothes so you can't gain without having to buy larger clothes. That provides good motivation against relapses. I look forward to hearing more updates at size 10. Enjoy the changes. Mary

That's great! I love Goodwill but never had much luck finding really large men's clothes. I pretty much relied on eBay when I had to fill some gaps in my closet on the way down.

Keep up the great work!

Default congratulations!

That is wonderful progress. What plan did you follow? You and I sound kind of familiar (similar start weight, I have a 9 year old too and it has been a while since I saw size 12...). I have not been having a lot of "scale success" with my strength training and diet regimen but am feeling a lot better. I'm looking for any help on getting the weight off!

Congratulations!!! It feels great to have to buy clothes because you are getting smaller, not BIGGER.

The plan is followed was one I made myself. I do 3 sets of different exercises that work the same muscle but differently. I use my own body weight and increasing start with my upper body first then lower then upper then lastly lower. So I am hitting my body with circuit training so my muscles are confused as to what comes next. So like the beginning of my workout is 3 sets of 25 chair dips then 3 sets of 25 pushups 3 sets of 25 tricep dips then I do lower like 3 sets of 25 lunges 3 of 25 square 3 of 25 side crunches then I move back to upper body such as 3 sets of 25 diamond pushups 3 of 25 arm raises then I will move back to upper then back to lower. Right after doing that, which takes about 45 50 minutes I go jogging. I used to do indoor stepping for 40 minutes but now that the weather has finally broken, I go jogging for about an hour. I go medium to fast pace, the fast pace is when I do a 3 minutes sprint and go back to medium pace. I go about 5.88 miles in that hour. I then make sure I drink 128oz of water and eat 4 times a day. I know I don't always get in 1200 calories, but I at least get in 1000 a day. That's my plan. When I started, I could only do 1 set of 10, but as they became easy it incresed. That's why I am now at 3 of 25 and my next step in 2 weeks is to go to 4 sets of 20 just to throw my body off. After that 3 sets of 30.

At Halloween Fashion Bug had a shirt that said "I'm not short, I'm fun size", I think you need to keep your eye out for it and snatch one up in a medium. Congratulations.
