Durings @ 155lbs
I just noticed from a self photo that the whites of my eyes are very white. They had been a muddy color many months ago that worried me (pre surgery). I had even tried Visene that didn't change them.
I am down to the last few pair of pants that still fit. I think I may still have 5 pairs of 12s or 14s (not sure). I had to get rid of 2 pairs today because they were so baggy (dress pants) that they looked silly.
Lots of hair loss. Lots.
Skin quality has improved but lots of loose skin.
Feet are smaller. Some shoes are slightly too big.
I have somewhat of a waist for the first time in around 10 years.
I'm wearing a 38 DD bra and could possibly wear a 38D (not sure, just guessing).
Added vitamin D3 taken with calcium after a 6 week stall. Feel SO much better and am slowly losing again.
My legs cross differently (closer together).
Headaches are virtually gone (unless I drink too much wine).
Have gone from a XXL shirt to a M in tshirts and work golf shirts.
Bought size M exercise pants from Wal Mart. They fit just right.
Can wear heels longer and walk easier in them.
Feel much, much lighter in body.
