A New Low

This latest fill is working wonders with the weightloss - another 1lb down this morning, taking me to a new low of

16st 1lb - 225lbs - BMI 37.4
(a total loss so far of 37lbs)
I'm absolutely chuffed at being so close to the next stone down - another 2lbs and I'll be able to think to myself (but not to say out loud, oh no sirreee!) "I'm 15st-something" which, when you consider I started back in January at just 4lbs away from 19 stone, is going to feel sooooooo good!
This also means
1) I'm just 5lbs away from having lost 3st
2) I'm just 5lbs away from my next set of comparison photos
3) I'm just 3lbs away from losing 40lbs, which is the amount at which many bloggers have said people really begin to notice the weightloss
My wardrobe is throwing NSVs at me left, right and centre - so many of my clothes are too big now but I'm still wearing them because I can't afford to go out and replace everything! I'm scouring eBay for clothes in a size UK20 (or maybe even an 18 if the cut is right!)
When Mum & I were in Oxford the other day I tried on some 20s and 18s in good old M&S; the 20s fitted well, the 18s also fitted in some looser cut items and it felt so wonderful to not even have to pick up the size 22s. The smallest of the trousers that Tina sent me from Macy's in Portland, Oregon are even getting to be a little big; hopefully hubby and I will be paying a visit to the USA in the not-too-distant future so I can buy a smaller size before this pair fall off in a public place... That would be an NSV to blog about (as long as I don't get incarcerated for indecent exposure.)
