            Thanks Girls! The dress is from Chadwicks.com. I don't see it on their site anymore, but they have some cute stuff and some cute outfits that would be nice for MOB. It fit great on top but a little poofy on the bottom because of the pleats.

            Weight loss can be tough without support and even harder to maintain. I work with a woman that makes snide comments.. like she's complimenting, but almost wants me to feel bad for losing more than her. (even though we weren't competing!) Like she'll say "oh, look at Angie, her clothes are going to fall off of her.. " just weird.

            Here was my goal.. I had a size in mind, but more importantly I wanted to see my collar bone.. lol skinny girls won't understand but when you're puffy, you can't see your collar bone. I, being in a strapless dress, wanted those bones to show.. that was my motivation.. lol That and I knew I had to wear some form of a bathing suit in front of all our guests!

            Thanks girls!!

              Wow, you look amazing...Congrats!!!! That's so great that you lost weight without a "diet", it seems to be a lot easier to maintain when it's a lifestyle change rather than a diet. Keep up the good work

              BTW - Love the dress...going to check out Chadwicks now!

                Congratulations, you look great! You are an inspiration and I totally know what you mean about the collarbone- I haven't seen mine in 5 years, but I am working on it!
