View Full Version : What signs have you had besides the scales & measuring that you're succeeding?
For me - its just a little thing - but I was able to move my watch band from the last hole to the 3rd hole in!
Also I have more energy and feel much lighter on my feet!
And last but not least, I bought a pair of jeans one size smaller!
How about you?

I am using the very last hole on my belt, instead of the 3rd one.......and I should actually go buy smaller ones!!

My rings are getting too large

I share almost the same signs as you all. I was able to move a notch on my watch band this weekend, my rings are lose and I have been able to get into jeans that I haven't worn in 7 years that were in the bottom of my dresser drawer! All of which make me feel really good.

Almost lost my mother's ring in the washing machine last night. How exciting!!! Plus comments from people on Friday that I haven't seen in a few months. I had four different people tell me how "good" I looked, "have you lost weight?".

To heck with scales!! My success have been:
*Not needing a seat belt extender on an airplane
*Fitting into the seats on the airplane
*Buying clothes off the rack!
*Being able to buy clothing merchandise when I go on vacation
*not having to worry whether or not I'll fit into the rides at ANY theme park
*Being able to walk the stairs to my office without having to labor to breathe
*Feeling SO much better about myself
I could go on. Those are just a few of them for me!

DH & I want walking outside today. I was actually able to walk UP hills without feeling like I was dying! I was even able to carry on a conversation as we walked! Before I started dieting & exercising I most definitely could not have done that! :sunny:
Now, if that scale & tape measure would just move a little lower......

All of my favorite business suits are HANGING OFF ME - I look like a little girl in her mother's suits - last week I stood up too fast at work and almost had to grab ahold of my pants!

Wow, these are some great signs! :) I had to laugh at yours though, Dana! Ha ha!
So far just the way my clothes feel. My old fat pants that had gotten tight are now feeling looser. Not swimmingly lose, but lose anyway.
I notice my neck is leaner and my collar bones are starting to make their appearance again!
I think if I went to a VERY secluded beach, I could possibly wear my bikini (not stand up in it, just lay on the beach towel the whole time!) ;)
