Thanks everyone!

ajrsmom, Good ideal. I'll check the other Goodwill on Wednesday when I head over to Save-A-Lot across town. I'll check it out then.

My sides are smaller. You know how when you're walking and swinging your arms, your elbows are always rubbing against your sides?? Well, There's a little less "rubbing" going on these days.l

Also, the almost-daily heartburn I used to get is totally gone. And I'm sleeping much better, and I do have more energy!!

Hey, did you go to reach for a part of your body that is no

longer there, it's smaller. That happened to me a couple of times, it was strange to have to readjust to what I thought my arm, neck etc. was like. I can now take my hand and wrap it around my wrist, it's but a dime away from touching fingers. I haven't been able to do that in years!! My arms aren't hanging down so much either, I think once I move to Tennessee I'm gonna buy some bar-bells though the ideal of using them doesn't appeal to me-LOL!

My stomach is the main problem for me

I think I could deal with my behind a little longer if the stomach would just disappear but both are big problems. They are gettting smaller just not fast enough. Another one that is getting smaller but is still a problem is the fat in the inside of your legs...ugh. But, I can't complain, it's going...better than it returning-LOL!

Be patient. You're both doing great! Remember:

BABY STEPS

According to my Jorje Cruze book, for arms, you stand a couple feet out from a wall, with your hands on the wall. Then push in and out slowly. Kind-of like pushups, only standing up. As you get stronger, you can do it off something lower, like a coffee table.

Guess what, I bought a size 3X!

You have to understand that I was nearly in a size 6X!!! I didn't realize until today how big I really was! I was wearing 5X's but they were too tight, today I had to go buy a sweater because I had given away all my larger sized clothes/coats just to have a freak snow storm today so I looked and looked and didn't believe that I could fit into the size 3x's which was the only plus sizes I found at the thrift store.

So, I went to the men's section like I used to do and couldn't find anything there. They had a men's jacket and pants but it was like $18.99 and I'm not paying that in a thrift store, so I went back to the women's section and found a sweater and a few shirts. It was half off day so I decided to try the clothes on in the changing room. Well, wouldn't ya know it but the 3X fit. I got one shirt too that will fit better in a few days. The other two shirts, one would fit in a few days but my stomach and butt are still preventing me from being able to fit it completely so I put that back and the other shirt fit but it was too light so I put it back. When I looked at that size though I did not think I could fit a 3X, I just knew it would be extemely tight on me, but it fit!!!

I also looked at pants but had no ideal what size to buy, they had some 26/28 but I wasn't sure if I could fit it just yet. The stretchier pants were like size 5X and I looked at it shockingly, I could not believe that I used to fit into that and it was tight!!! It was HUGE!!!

I also noticed that the pants I have on now are looking really loose on me and makes me look untidy. But, I'm getting smaller and that's great.

I also noticed that in the mirror, I looked short...that's probably because I'm 5'6 and my body is starting to shift the way I was supposed to look, which is a short person with a small body, instead of a big body on a shorter frame. All I noticed before was my body and now I actually noticed my height.

Can I say, yay!!! I will never, ever let myself get back to being like that again!!!

Way to Go!!!!! Im so happy for you!! I can hear it in your word just how happy you are!

I know what you mean about pants making you look sloppy. I have on a pair of stretch pants that I have been wearing to exercise in. They dont do a thing for my big butt but they are so comfortable.

I have a big chest and a big butt ---they prevent me from wearing a lot of shirts....the chest not so much now but the butt , YES!

We are going to some yard sales tomorrow (cant wait!!!!). I would love to find some stuff for me. I hardly ever buy things for me anymore---isnt that the way it is when you have kids and a DH? But since I had an awful morning ( will explain later, not enough time now), Im going out tomorrow for me!!!


Great luck with finding the clothes!! I hardly have any luck at Salvation Army or GoodWill.



VickiLynn, For the wall push-ups, Do your hands face sp toward the ceiling? Im going to try doing these. Does it recommend a certain number of sets to do?

Thanks for telling us about them!! Ill try just about anything to get rid of these wings. ;-)


Im off to Curves......talk to ya all later on tonight.

Leasmom, I'm so HAPPY for you!!!
You're going to be sooo skinny walking down those University halls in a couple months! Good job.

The wall pushups are done with hands facing up. The farther away you stand, the better the workout. He says do 4 sets of 12.
