    I used to go on the ww forum quite a lot when I was doing that and there is quite a lot of talk of these over there so I thought I would start a thread for us to celebrate these together as its not just the numbers that are important.

    So.. a non scale victory.. something you can now do, which you couldn't before, something related to your diet you are chuffed about that isnt a numerical loss.

    I will start... :D

    I found a pair of combat trousers on the floor in the back of my cupboard this morning that I threw there in disgrace before xmas as I bought them without trying them on and I couldnt do them up.
    I am now sat wearing them, on the tightest belt hole. :king: Hooray!

    Well done Rach. Don't you just love it when you can get into things that previously got tossed aside in disgust. Good for you!

    I shall have to get my thinking cap on and come up with a non scale victory for today.....will come back to it.

    Hey Good thread Rach.

    Some years ago I was looking at cleaning out some old clothes that didn't fit. I started trying them on and was astonished to find everything fitted. And the stuff that did go in the bin liner was because they were too big. I really was flabbergasted.

    I have moved another hole on my belt today. (It previously wouldn't go around me!). Am now three holes in. :happy036: Roll on the day that it no longer fits me.

    Damn, I wish I'd taken a photo of my old belts before I threw them away. They had every hole used going from a 56" waist down to holes I'd punched to a 38" waist. LOL

    I am feeling really good today as a couple of weeks ago I bought a pair of slouch jeans (2 sizes smaller than I would have needed 7 weeks ago) and when I tried them on there was far too much 'cling' going on and not enough slouch. Well today I tried them on again and they slouch just as they should!!! So I am proudly wearing them. Going to be getting lots of wear out of them as hoping they will only fit me for another 4 weeks and then I can buy the next size down!

    Oh and I have gone down another hole on my belt! Only 1 more hole to go until I need to buy a smaller size.

    Today is a good day. :D:D:D

    LOL, that might mean something to me if I had the faintest idea what "slouch" jeans are. :confused: :confused:

    LOL. :giggle: They are loose fitting. Shouldn't cling basically.

    Note to self, must remember to explain fashion terms for the men folk amongst us. :D

    Im currently wearing my old favourite size 16 skirt for the first time in maybe 3.5yrs :greenapple:

    Tried on 2 pairs of 16 trousers too which I can get in and do up but still a little tight around my mummy tummy. I did have one pair of them on for an hour though before I remembered about this skirt so im claiming this for my signiture! :D
