 Finally my 4 week stall has broken!!!!!  Since about September 13th I have not been able to get below 183 lbs and this morning I was 180 lbs OMG I am soooooooooooo happy!!!!!!!!  I think I may frame the picture I took of the scale lol!!!!!

I know I have been losing inches as the 13/14s I've been wearing from Aeropostale that were snug a few weeks ago are falling off of me and yesterday I grabbed a pair of 12's (corduroy's) that I had had from the last time I lost weight and they went right on with no problem  I was shocked to say the least lol.

Also, the 15 Juniors I bought a few weeks ago are now falling off my butt too and I'm not sure even a belt will save those so, dare I say it? I guess I will need to try the 11/12s?!?!?!?  That just blows my mind!!!!  I am less than 20 lbs difference in weight than my daughter.  I can almost wear HER clothes.  Never thought THAT would happen in this lifetime.  Wow, wow and WOW!!!

YEAH!!!!! Knew you would do it and an NSV is even better than a scale one but the scale one is still awesome.

Jeese, I wonder what size I would wear in a juniors...I just don't like them cause the waist is too small for me. I need INEXPENSIVE "MOM" jeans.

Yeah, I am now smaller than my always skinny daughter. However, in her defense, she did have a baby this year and gained weight in her butt...She's actually my stepdaughter and genetics were AGAINST her...her mom and that entire side has a large rear end. I'm the one who, even fat, had "noassatall".

Thanks, Liz!

I'm still REALLY hungry a lot of the time but I've been eating more of the dense proteins as was suggested and that has definitely helped fill me up quicker and helps control the hunger!  

I hate to be dependent on those scale numbers, but dammit, I am lol . . .to a point anyway, I want to at least see "some" progress though I accept there will be "stalls" and slow periods but 4 weeks is a long time and it feels like 10 weeks when the scale isn't doing what you want it to! 

I have no hips and noassatall or I couldn't wear juniors  the women's stuff is a joke on me because I've got nothing to hold it up!!!!  I used to be all boobs n belly on two sticks. . .ya know, like a barrel on stilts!  Thank surgery for tummy tucks and boob lifts lol.....at least I look proportionate now for the most part.  The heaviest part of me now is my thighs (which I think is really noticeable in my latest pic) and my mid section so the low-rise jeans in Juniors are perfect for me.  At this point, I just want something that will stay up and cover my nonexistent ass!!!!!

Awesome!!!   I still can't figure out how we lose so many inches during a stall....but we do. 

Congrats on the smaller sizes!
