What I like about my weightloss is...

being comfortable in my own skin enough to successfully pull off skinny jeans. (I see I'm not the only one.)

getting home from running and my daughter tells me that she didn't realize it was me running until she passed me because I looked much younger.

being healthier.

feeling stronger.

being here and "meeting" such great people!

The wonder of weight loss has not left me...I had to go to a funeral yesterday so got out my black dress, which I don't wear very often. I had that feeling of trepidation as I undid the zipper, wondering if it would fit...but it fit like a glove, again. Life is good!

And something new that I discovered yesterday morning......I can now touch the floor with my hands when I'm doing bending stretches in the morning (knees slightly bent, of course). It's been a very long time since I could do that.

Poohscout1-glad that you enjoyed my signature comments. I still haven't learned the "art" yet.

Having my Dr. tell me that she wishes that everyone took their health as seriously as I do.

Looking good in single digit sizes.

Learning that it is possible for me to push myself and remain committed to goals - and achieve them!

I've got lots, but these are among my top favorites:

-Being able to walk into any shop (in less vanity-sized Europe) and feeling confident that I'll find something that not only fits, but also looks great!

-Going for a complete physical and coming back with a clean bill of health, knowing that I've cut down my preventable risk factors to almost zero by losing and maintaining my weight!

My name's Tina. I lost more than 90 pounds between March 2010 and March 2012 and have been keeping if off ever since.

I like that my clothes fit so much better and look much more flattering. You are right....no more Spanks......I am wearing two sizes smaller now and I can't believe I fit into this size. Shopping is so much more fun I just wish I had more money. Now I just have to keep it up and not gain!

Yup, me too! I wear control top hose just for the smoothing out. There's an old old (from the 20s) New Yorker cartoon that has a society matron looking at herself in a mirror as she's trying on what my grandma called a corselette. The saleswoman says, "Madam looks quite nice when she's all together!" But last night I was wearing a t-shirt knit dress and smoothed it down and thought, "I look just fine!" No slip, no smoothing top, just a cami to fill in a too low neckline. I think part of it is also acceptance--that it's OK to still have (and show) a little tummy curve. I'm never going to be built like a wire coat hanger, but I can look nice in clothes that show my shape. ISN'T THAT AMAZING! emoticon

Yeah--I remember the day when I would squeeze into those things to look less fat--now when I wear them--it's just to smooth things out--cuz, man--I need some smoothing out sometimes :)

I remember wearing those panty hose that would eventually ride lower and lower on the hips. First thing I took off when I got home from work!

Not feeling like you HAVE to wear Spanx or Control top stockings under every damn thing.

Just saying.

I can sit at my desk and actually breath very easily....now, clingy fabrics, I still get my Skweezy slip out to create a smooth service, but since I have to dress up every day at work, not having to squeeze myself into the control/thigh Spandexy stockings daily, is amazing.

One of the many reasons why maintaing this weighloss will be SO WORTH IT.

How you guys go.
