I do have to say though that I absolutely hate my body type lol - I bought a beautiful formal gown in extra small (cool lol) and I did not have the chest to fill it out properly even with a pushup and inserts. I hate that I am 30.5 inches in the chest and there's nothing I can do about it. I used to be 36 but 3 kids and nursing them all fixed that. I should be rewarded for being a milk service not punished :o(

I just got out my skinny, skinny black leather coat with tie belt that I was so proud to fit into last winter. Well, now it is loose!

OR you could take the Motorcycle Safety Foundation's Beginner's Class and learn to ride yourself. Riding a motorcycle is one of life's great joys. Any motorcycle shop will have a list of local classes. If you are only interested in Harleys, they run their own beginner classes.

I am wearing my size 3 jeans that I wore when I got married 10 years ago. I can also share clothes with my daughter which is cool. She is 6. When I went winter coat shopping recently I saw a beautful dressy jacket in the little girls section. I tried to find a similar one in the women's section. No luck. Went ahead and bought a girls size 14. Love it!

I'm always surprised when the Spring season comes around and my summer clothes fit. I don't know why but it always delights me.

All the "thin" clothes I kept for 23 years are way too large now and had to be donated!

All my "new" clothes are hand-me-downs from my neighbor's daughter!

One of the great things about being at goal for a long time is that I can actually accumulate clothes, and only toss the ones that are terribly out of date and I hated when they were in style (giant shoulder pads). I have a closet with 30 years of clothes, all the same dimension, but different size numbers. The size 8 from the 70s (which is snug in the waist) is a size 1 today. It makes it hard to find clothing as small sizes fall into teen departments. And I am not into glitter or ruffles. If you want to see what a size really is, look at Vogue patterns, which haven't changed in many decades. I wear a 1 or a 2 in the stores, but a size 12 in a pattern. Marilyn Monroe was famously 36-26-36. Which was a size 12.

There are only two important sizes: fits, and doesn't fit.

At my all time high I wore a 2X. Most of my life I wore 16s, 18s, and 1X. I saved a few 12s from when I had dieted a couple times. However, at size 4 now, nothing from my old life fits, and I sure would not want it to.

I actually bought a bikini this year. No, I haven't been brave enough to wear it in public, but I will.

My mom gave me a black leather coat that she bought one time to motivate her to lose, but she never got into it. It now fits me beautifully.

I remember when I reached goal and tried on my clothes from high school. They were pretty baggy so I tossed them! Felt great! Recently when I was at the store trying on clothes it felt great to slide in to the size 26/27 (1/2 and 3/4) jeans! emoticon

Sometime back in the '60s, the new fashion was women's hip-hugger bell-bottom pants. Over the years, I just couldn't part with them, even though they were much too small.

Last year, when I met my goal of 125, I found those pants in my closet and tried them on....oh, oh...they were too big!! Gave them to GoodWill!!

emoticon I'm afraid I have shrunk out of all my old outfits, even the "skinny" ones. The dress in the icon is one I bought recently... I can't believe the size, but I love the silhouette. And it feels good to wear.
