Well here it is! I reached my first goal of 75 lbs. OK, 76 lbs to be exact and as promised here are the before and after pictures:
SEPT. 2011 MAR. 2012 76 lbs lost
I am no longer in a plus size! I don't have to shop in the plus stores anymore! I'm at the top end of the regular sizes now. I bought myself a couple of dresses, a fancy one for a St. Pats dance the other night and the other a cute little summer dress and they were both from a regular store, sized XL. I started out at a size 4XL.
I bought new underwear in the regular size section and I am back down to one size away from my usual bra size a 36B. I need to go get myself a couple pairs of jeans and leggings, I think I'll fit into a size 16 jean. The 18s I have right now slide on and off without me having to undo the button and zipper and I have to hitch them up all the time. The jeans I started out with were a size 26!
T-shirts and leggings, I'm guessing an XL will fit but I'm only going to get a couple of things to tide me over until my next goal which is 100lbs.
I will update again with a new picture of me at 100lbs weight loss and I've decided to treat myself to something I've always wanted but was too chicken to get before. I'm going to get a tattoo of a cross on my ankle once I've reached the 100lb mark.
