...you really SHOULD be refitted for a bra with a 10 pound gain or loss. Believe them!!

Ok...this morning at church one of my best friends - who hasn't been there in about 3 weeks - was telling me he could really see a difference, especially in my face and neck but also in my waist and stuff. His words were "You see yourself every day, so it's harder to see, but I haven't seen you in 3 weeks, and believe me, there's a difference." My response was "Thanks RJ..." But in my head I was still skeptical.

My jeans still fit. Ok, when they're stretched out from wearing I can pull them off and on without unfastening them, but they're not to the point where they're falling off and I need to get new ones. Out of curiosity, while I was wandering around SoHo this afternoon, I went into Old Navy to try on a smaller size pair of jeans just to see. Right now I'm in a 16.

Ok, so technically I can get in a 14 (the Sweetheart style only) and fasten them and sit, but they're tight and not comfortable.

Now...I was getting really confused because I've lost 15.5 pounds as of this morning (yeah, I cheated and hopped on the scale) since I started this thing. But my jeans are still essentially the same size??? What's up with that???

Well, some of my facebook friends and twitter friends SAID that I was probably losing it in other places - and that typically women lose it in their chest first. And you know what?

They were right!!

I was wandering in SoHo because I'd signed up to attend this free Perfect Cup fitting event sponsored by Skinny Cow Ice Cream (May I just say...we each got a single size cup of one of three flavors...and the Dulce du Leche is AMAHZING!!! As good as (at least) Hagen Daz!!!) and Olga/Warners. I figured I've definitely lost more than 10 pounds since I was last measured, so go for it!

I got back to my little fitting room, and my fitter - who was wonderful and very nice - asked me what size I was in now. I honestly wasn't sure what size the bra I had on was, but I knew this morning I'd worn a 42DD, which is the Victoria's Secret bra I got when I was last fitted. (Turns out the bra I was wearing was also 42DD. Who knew?) I told her, and added that I'd lost weight since I was measured. She nodded and said "Yeah, I can tell you right now you're NOT a 42. Let's see what you are."


That is FOUR INCHES off my chest!!!!!! FOUR INCHES!!!!!

If that isn't incentive to keep going, I don't know what is!!!!

(AND in addition to my free ice cream (only 150 calories in this little cup!!), I get a free bra!!! They're mailing it to me, but WOOHOO!!! Free is definitely good! Especially since I still have weight to lose.)

Tis the day to weigh in... And so...

Last week: 188
This week: 186.5

So yay! A pound and a half loss!! That's the way I like the scales to go!!

But but but!!! So I was texting with a friend yesterday - we're being long-distance weight-loss buddies - and being bummed that even though I've lost weight, my jeans aren't to the point where I needw to get new ones (and no, I was not wearing them really tight). She asked me if I'd tried on any new clothes because she didn't think she had gone down any sizes but she had. Well, at the time it was late, so I couldn't run out to a store, but I pulled out a formal dress I've had since 2005. At the time I managed to get into it with a girdle and extra control-top hose, but since then it's been hard (like even when I tried to sell it on Craig's List I had to take pictures of it on a hanger because I couldn't zip it.

Not only could I zip it, it's actually too big in the bust area!! Like, the only way it was staying up is the "bone" structure of the bodice. It's definitely form-fitting in the waist-to-hips area, but it zipped comfortably. If I had to wear it again, I could do so comfortably with some tailoring in the bust area.

So yay!!!

Also? I now definitely see why they say bras need to be refitted with every 10 pounds of weight lost (or gained). Good thing I've got a fitting scheduled on Sunday huh?
