Onto the weight loss issue. Since having changed when I eat my big meal (breakfast) and how I eat (June 2012), I have now officially "shrunk" three sizes. My size 10 pants are too big, and the size 8s are comfortable. I hope to plateau at some point. I can't afford new clothes. I don't have any size 6s in the closet.
Good for you! I am still celebrating getting down to a 14-16 size from a 26-28 size. Looking forward to getting down to those single didgets!

Congratulations!

Congrats to both of you (SB and PF)!!!! I have a doctor's appointment in October. I think I'll have to step on the scale to figure out how much weight I've lost. I don't own a scale--I go by clothes size...only now, I've shrunk out of most of the clothes I have.

I do know that the "distance" between the smaller sizes is less than the larger sizes. I have been doing a workout that is supposed to get rid of the muffin top (not every day, but at least 3 times / week when I feel like working up a sweat).

Wow, SB, that's wonderful! Does your family even recognize you?

Good job. Don't forget about Value Village.

71 minutes! Wow. Pretty soon you'll be running marathons, SB! We do daily 30-40 minute walks or the recumbent/rower, 71 minutes is true dedication.

Thanks! I am feeling much better after a long hot shower.
