Congrats Mary,
I definitaly needed to hear that this morning. I gained 1 1/2 this week and I really didn't think I did that bad, but did have quite a bit of ham this week, maybe water retention. Not that TOM. Anyway thanks for getting me back on track.

Important update....... Was at J C Penny's yesterday and tried on a pair of size 6 relax Lee jeans, (I always wear relax jeans, give those hips a little extra room ) and they fit!!!!

Now that is what I call a very important update!

Mary, Thanks for sharing your success with us! It truly is an inspiration for those of us who still have a way to go. Weigh to go on the size 6! Awesome! Can't wait to get there myself. I've already gone from a 16 to 12 but still have a ways to go.

Thanks for the uplift this morning!

This is wonderful news!!!! I always get happy when I read posts like this. I've been 114 lbs for over trhee years now and love being in a size 4. It took me 6 to 7 months, but I did it and best of all it stayed off. Wonderfull when you burn fat instead of carbs. Hang in there and it will happen to you. I paln to keep my size 4 for years to come.

I am using these posts as inspiration on my new journey.

I can't even imagine what it must feel like to wear a size 6??

I think I would want to wear the size tag on the outside ALL the time - just never take it off "oh have I mentioned I'm a size 6 ..." or "so, as I was saying I'm a size 6" ... and I would command all my friends to refer to me as "my size six friend"

You have every right to be SO PROUD. You deserve it!!!

Now, I hope it rubs off ...
