Default Weight loss

I started a diabetic diet a couple of months ago. I haven't lost a lot of weight, but what I have lost, I'm losing in the right places. Previously, I was wearing some size 3xl tops which were a bit loose on me, but at the time, I thought, "Well, I keep packing on the weight, so this gives me room to grow." And the 2xl tops were starting to feel a bit snug around my back side.

Today I was able to get into a couple of XL tops!

Also, my pant size varied from an 18-20. Today I bought some in a size L.

Earlier this week, I was able to pull a bag of smaller bras out of the attic and get back into them.

Great news, Renee, good job. I am rejoicing with you.

I just went through my closet and found a whole bunch of clothes that were too tight a few months ago. Now they fit nicely and you can see that waistline coming back in.

I have SO MANY CLOTHES. I picked my absolute favorites to keep. All the rest are going to the resale shop next month. Hubby will be pleased when he sees my side of the closet not bursting at the seams.

I still have some more things to search through, but the majority of it is sorted through. Productive day!!!!

Default Great job!

Congrats!! Just don't do like I did and reach your goal -- and then totally fall off the wagon. I lost 28 pounds last year, but I have since found about 10 of them again. Keep up the good fight!
