Tomorrow I will be 7 weeks out, and I just recently had to go buy a new pair of jeans for my new job.. I never expected my day though.  I went to Fashion Bug today and figured since I was a 32 at my surgery date, and I knew I have lost over 50 pounds, I figured ok 28 would be good.  Well those were too big. So I try on 26s, too big, and the 24 fit perfectly...When I started this journey I made a promise to myself that I would not base my weighloss by the scale number or size, but how I felt.  I do not weigh myself only at my doctors, I have a scale and I put it away. I stood there in the dressing room dancing..(im sure the saleslady thought I was nuts). Many times I would read posts about how people went down in clothing sizes and really honestly had never got excited over clothes..but today I realized my life is going to change Finally..It was the change that amazed me..
Best of Luck, Charmaine

That's so great,  its things like this that continually amaze me about this journey we are all on.   Sometimes you read a post and think   "i'd like that to happen"  then it does.  Or "oh that won't happen to me, or i never cared that much about ......  its a hellofa ride  !!! Congratulations on doing so well.  :o) Jeani
