        haha "twitching eye" ... yeah the last few months will flit away too! watch out!

        you're already losing anyway ... you don't need us! congrats on your losses thus far!

        i haven't posted about clothes shopping in this thread in awhile. i recently found that because i'm smaller on top i can wear some XL shirts instead of 1X from the plus section (where i have to buy the rest of my clothes). i also bought some dresses that are size 16 woot (only because they have super full skirts, but whatever! lol).

        anyway, i know a lot of you have had success buying stuff from newport news. i bought two tops today and tried buying from the "regular" sizes instead of the "women's" sizes. i'll let you know how it goes!

          Oh that's soooooooo great Lisa on the dress size, woo hoo!!!

          I forgot to tell you ladies about my "wonderful" shopping experience at Wal-Mart a few weeks ago. I'm just browsing around in all the clothes, looking at whatever and I reach the 725 junior (yet plus size) clothes. I'm looking around and the lady that is working in that section looks at me and says "you know, this line of clothing is made really small" OMG, she was so f'ing rude when she said it. Also, old, fat and ugly (lol sorry!). I couldn't believe it when she told me that. I wanted to punch her in the face. First of all, how did she even know that I was shopping for myself, and secondly, how the hell does she know what size I wear? Gimme a f'ing break - I was so pissed off!! People should just mind their own business sometimes.

The walmart employee 100 years old with a beard come sover to assist me in seeing the pearls, she points at my Ering and says "oh that's one of ours, we sold it last xmas here." Ok SusieQ is trying not to laugh or bite her ,I am not sure!!!! She then goes on to say "it was a great deal it was selling for $69.99.... hahahahahaha now I have stitches....

                  LOL, OMG how insulting! Did you correct her?! If someone said that about my ring I would have lost it and been like, um no, I bought this at a real jewelry store, and it costs more than you make in a year!


                  So I have lost 20lbs and I am stuck. But I was going to the gym everyday and then I had to miss a few days this week so maybe just getting back at it will kick start things back up again. I wish FI would notice more though. I know he sees me everyday and so its harder to see a difference but it would be nice. He says he does notice but that is after I ask him! Little shat. Anyways, I hadn't seen my BFF in a month or so and she was floored so that's something, but then that is what girlfriends are good for!

                  There is a Maggie truck show near me in November and I really really want to go and possibly get my dress! I was planning on waiting till after the holidays and see how much more I can lose but maybe I can just work really hard before November and maybe do extra alterations later?

                    That's great Ashley!

                    I still want to get more stuff, but unfortunately am using my cash for other things right now. Damn house stuff! lol I know that Old Navy still has stuff on clearance...maybe I should check them out!

                      YEAH STEPH!!!!!!!! Losing weight is such a great feeling.

                      I dunno but I would totally be getting my dress soon. Your wedding isn't that far away, when you think about it. Alterations can always be done, especially easy to take in!

                      As for your FI not noticing - he does, he may just not say anything. Some men are like that. My FI is the only always saying that it looks like I've lost weight and I'm the one that can't see it! lol Either way, you know that you're losing weight and feel great and so you should girl! Your BFF noticing is a great feeling too. She wouldn't just say that to say it, she means it! Don't stress about it, you're doing amazing. Keep it up!!
