6/8/10 Party In My Fat Pants! *New 'Afters'*

It's time for my Century Club party! Yes I'm all dressed up in my 'big girl pants'! I remember showing you that I could get into one leg of my old dress pants awhile back, but they were thin and had a pleated front. I wondered if this would work with the old pair of jeans...now remember, I accidentally got rid of my 24/26W jeans and saved the size 20's instead (yes, not the 22's even, the 20's). HOLY COW! I can get into one leg of my size 20 non-stretch jeans!!! Party in my fat pants...and there's room for you all!!! See, even Frownie (my new belly-button) looks a little happier).

Time for some new pics!

Before--------------1/13/09 = 244 (-4 lbs.) Start 248 lbs.
About 1/2 Way---8/2/09 = 195 (-53 lbs.) 1/2 Way=50 lbs.
Almost 1st Goal---1/30/10 = 163 (-85 lbs.) Goal=90 lbs.
Dream Goal!------6/3/10 = 148 (-100 lbs.)




Oh, and my pants didn't shrink along with me; again I have 4 big clips tightening the pants on the opposite side from the camera so you can see my silhouette.

Anyway, I'm still reeling a little from reaching my Dream Goal (yes I cried...and then I drank lots of wine to celebrate...I heard Gilly joined me...and Judi made me a martini...and Sandy wanted to but she's in rehab for WL...although I think she's off the wagon now). Then I got 'stuck', and PBed, but that's another story.
 *Portion of Post Deleted for Lap Band Book

This is what I bought to celebrate my Century Club initiation...10 new bras and 8 new little panties (they look just like party favors)! All I know is that my ever shrinking boobs had put all my old 38C bras out of business and I was down to 2 bras that didn't really fit this weekend (most of them could now be indented the opposite way when I had them on). Note my side shot above. Psst, I'll tell you a secret...I wore my thin cami and had to put pieces of kleenex over my nips (no, I don't mean stuff the bra wadded up kleenex, I'm talking in place of band-aids because it was R-rated) just so I could show you how flat I am now...send all your excess boobage my way please). So I went shopping. I tried figuring out what size I was before I left home using my 'Bra Fitting 101' blog research, but I found I was in between sizes and I was guessing that even with as much as I'd lost and the 'rounding up' that I wasn't actually now a 36AA. I tried on more than 100 bras in 6 different sizes of every shape and color trying to figure out what size I am now. The poor dressing room lady looked like she was going to kill me by the time I'd figured it out. Apparently I am now either a 34C or a 36B (I bought five of each size LOL). Yes there are ones with cups that are super thin all the way up to 'add a cup size', so I'm going to keep everyone confused with my flat to buxom blonde boobage.

So PARTY AT MY HOUSE! Now I'm off to turn in my S.O.B. answers (my acceptance speech).

The incredible shrinking woman! Love that you did those photos. I guess I should do something similar. I've been really bad about taking progress photos!

Gilly said...

Woo! That was fun! You're a mermaid! You have inspired me to take pictures! You look spectacular!

That is awesome! I love the pictures! And I can see a HUGE difference in the last two shots! I think you did fabulous! And I love all the new bras and panties, what a wonderful way to celebrate reaching goal.And who cares what size you are. All that matters is that you got bras that make YOUR BOOBIES look good and make you feel good, AND THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS SKINNY WOMAN!!!

Fantastic...YOU'RE SKINNY!!!! I am so amazed by you! I think your bat wing is even shrinking up in that last picture...you are just gorgeous...I'm sure I speak for many when I say thanks for letting us all be a part of it! I, like Barbara, would also like to know what the hardest part was or is....

amandakiska said...

Holy cow! You look great! I love how all the SOB's get blonder as they lose weight. Also you look really unhappy in the "before" pix!

Sherry said...

I just have to tell you that this is the THIRD time today I've come back to your blog to see this photos. Its just such an obvious 'shrinkage' and I cannot get over it. I'm so inspired and just hoping beyond hope that I can have this level of success with my band. Amazing.

Trixie said...

Congrats on reaching your dream goal. You look so amazing and you can really see the difference in the last 2. It's weird when we weigh a lot, 15lbs isn't even enough to drop a size (at least for me:)

Now that I've lost 40lbs and finally stopped wearing the falling off me clothes people are finally really starting to notice.

Love the new bras and panties; what a great way to treat yourself! Party Favors -- snort, choking with laughter.

BG, This has been an amazing years Journey we have taken together!!! AMAZING ;-) I am still 3 little pounds away. I am so PROUD of YOU.... I see the changes in myself as in your pictures. Nice job It really is amazing to see the changes in pictures and they are so truthful.

I am now having a somewhat of a hard time adjusting to and being in my smaller body and liking it. It feels new and so many WoW's from people it is a little scary. I think you need a chapter on "How one adjusts and feels about the new skinner body." I know for me it is a little head game but I am in a struggle with it. Best wishes imaluckydog
