I'm so happy today I just wanted to share...
« on: Wednesday September 10, 2008, 09:38:08 AM »
After a good few years of wearing size 16 trousers, I am today finally wearing (UK) size 14 jeans.

For my height (5ft 10) this is about as low as it's going to go, especially since I am running and building up muscles in my legs, so I am so pleased today.

I know only a few people will understand my delight, but still...

 ;D   :clap: :bounce:

Wow!! Good job, Woo. That is terrific. I'm losing weight too, it's a nice feeling but I still have more to lose, lol. Celebrate, treat yourself to something you enjoy, it may or may not be food, whatever you'd like. It's always nice to have a reason to celebrate and treat yourself.  ;D ;)
With care,

Good for you Woo. Plus you are now muscle instead of fat (like me).......your hard work is paying off.  You are 5ft. 10" tall? I would love to take you to the grocery store with me! ;D

It's a good day when you laugh!

Well done Woo, that is an achievement, and if your sizing is the same as ours (it is different from the USA, a size 14 here is much smaller than a size 14 there) then you would look very good at that size and your height.

I have been losing the weight I gained on prednisone too so can understand the good feeling that comes with the weight loss, it is a great feeling of achievement and I love being able to wear my old clothes again.
