I just need to celebrate this tiny thing and know no one but you guys will understand.

At my HW I’d gotten to the point that bath towels didn’t wrap round me without gaping, so could only use bath sheets- you know the bigger version of towels?

Anyway, I just got out the shower, grabbed the first towel on the rail, then realised 10 minutes later it’s a normal one! And I’m not exposing myself or anything 😂

What’s your most recent non-scale victory? I’d love to be able to celebrate each other

That’s exactly what’s happened to me!! I can now wrap a towel around me without it gaping & showing my bits lol. I actually didn’t take notice of it until a few wks ago. Also I bought some new pants not long ago & when I’m not sweating like a disgusting pig they’re actually a little bit big

That’s amazing! Clothes getting too big is the best feeling

Well done!! I haven’t got there yet. Not sure I ever will. Did it feel amazing? I think there’s something so empowering about being able to wear less

Wow that’s fantastic, I’m sure that towels won’t fit around me, I haven’t noticed either way I have mobility issues and I’m so clumsy trying to get in and out of my bath shower if I don’t break my neck I’m chuffed :lol:  I managed to do up some jeans normally without my hair and extender and put my normal jeans on today and they’re a little loose!

Haha I love this. Woohoo on the jeans. Little loose means soon they’ll be too big! Time to buy a smaller size 😁

I really hope I can fit in my others that are a bit small currently then eventually I’ll be able to fit in new ones maybe!
