New Vocabulary Word

Now....I'm a pretty realistic person, so don't get me wrong, I know that I will NEVER be a skinny size 2/4, but what I'm recognizing lately is that my own version of "skinny" is beginning to be so much more realistic that I ever though possible! I've lost 25 pounds sine the beginning of June and I am thrilled with the changes! But the best part is the recognition in myself that I CAN be "skinny" at a size 12 or 14. I still have around 35 pounds to lose before I can achieve that, but the best part to me right now is that I can actually see it happening, and that is something that I have never felt before! The lowest weight I've been in recent memory is 198, and even then, I didn't have this sense of becoming "skinny." But I feel hopeful! and I feel committed! and I feel empowered! and those are the best feelings to have as I continue to work towards my goals!

    Go you! I am 5"10, and will NEVER be a size 2. My sister used to tease me about being a BIG girl...funny thing is...when she said this, I was actually Thin, Athletic thin but thin - size 9.
    I would kill to be in a size 9 now. but I am 46 yo. And if I get down to a 12. (from the 18 I had gotten to) I will be so very happy.
    I want to weigh what the BMI index says I should weigh 165.
    but if I get to 175 and can't lose more. I am not going to complain. I think we all need to find where we are happy, and healthy and stop trying to fit into the Barbie doll mold.

    Glad you found your FIT. Good for you!
