I've been making a pile of pants that are too big for me now, to sell or give away. It's been a lot of years since I could do that. And the first time ever for me to have bras that are now too big. Luckily, I still have old GG, G, and F bras so I have something to wear already as I keep losing.


Congratulations on all your victories! I know we are strangers, but still I am SO PROUD of you. It takes so much work to not only change you life enough to lose the weight, but also to change your thinking to understand the wins that are not reflected on your scale. Keep it up; you are AWESOME!

Gin, this sounds like a fantastic plan! I aim for 1300 cals, but I rarely hit it. I especially like your goal to offer daily encouragement. Thanks for encouraging me today!
