Moving Forward

If you start back from April, I have lost almost 30 pounds (13.6 kg.) Despite this, I was feeling fatter than before...until today.

When I realized I was way overweight, I was wearing Women's size 22US. I recently bought a pair of Plus Size 18 pants. I tried on a pair of 18 Misses (there's a difference for some reason) but couldn't get them around my bottom. It was a little depressing, but it at least showed me where I needed to get.

Today I went to a Ladies Clothing store (not a plus size store) and bought a pair of Misses 18 skinny jeans. I took a picture in the dressing room. It was with my camera phone and I forgot to focus on looking into the mirror, but you get the point.

Remember this Before:

And After:

Now, not all size 18s fit yet, but they will.


  1. Congrats on losing 30lbs Annemarie! That is alot of weight and you must be very pleased to fit into size 18.
    Love your determination my friend especially as it is winter which is traditionally a very hard season to lose weight.
    Big hugs and lots of love

  2. Are you still moving forward Annemarie?
    Wish we could talk on the phone.
    Big hugs

  3. Congrats! That is darn impressive.

  4. I was happy when I went from a 22 to a 20, But now I'm back in a 22.

    I hope you are still making forward progress.

  5. Congrats on the loss and hurray for little victories!
    I lost some weight a few years ago (most stayed away, lol.)
    but something that I need to remember : If you're not hungry enough to eat a vegetable, you're not really hungry, you're just craving.
