    Surprising. Maybe it depends on the BMI and the percentae weight loss.

    I'm about 100 lbs over weight, well, now, about 75 lbs over weight.

    Gladmorning, are you taking measurements like waist size? I think that they are much better indicators of progress.

    First, congrats on 25 pounds in seven weeks!

    Back in the olden days there were standard sizes; now there are vanity sizes. Before, sizing was from about size 2 to size 20, and 2 was rare. Models wore a size 6. Anyway, all that aside, my grandmother who worked as a seamstress and then owned a dressmaking factory told me that the difference in sizes was very small in the smaller sizes and got greater in the larger sizes. While I don't remember the specifics, it was like if you lost an inch in the hips at size 6, that might take you to a size 4, but to go from size 20 to size 18, you'd have to lose three inches in the hips/waist. With vanity sizing, it might be an even bigger difference in the larger sizes. IOW don't get discouraged.

    Also, everyone loses differently. For me, either gaining or losing, it's generally my bra size that changes first; lower body comes later.

    Again, congrats on the loss so far!

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Thanks guys.

    I've measured. 1.5 inches off hips, 2 at my waist and 2 at my bust. So, yeah, I suppose it could just be that most of this has come off my upper body. I've lost this 25 lbs before. I guess I need to look at it as not just 25 lbs, but 1/4 of my goal down. I want to lose three more lbs for this month to reach my goal. I'm ok if I don't make it, but I think I can!

    Um GOTD-

    I've been working REALLY freaking hard at my pt job, hoping to score full time. They know that I want it, and want to give it to me, but they are also considering another girl that always freaking late. And I mean, like, 20 minutes late every day. I'm not sure why they're dragging their feet considering one of the full time people is going on maternity leave for two months. I wish they would just make up their damn minds. If they choose the other girl that already has another job AND is planning to go back to school, I am going to be freaking pissed. Like, almost pissed enough to quit.

    Youngest brother just diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer; it has spread all over. He's gone off to Chicago to that disreputable Cancer Center of America (owner a big Teabagger supporter), who are making pretty wild claims. Bad enough to lose my baby brother, but having people goudging the dying is really the limit. Btw, even though he was always thin, he drinks Pepsi every day and eats SAD.

    I'm so sorry, Digby. Your brother just wants to be sure he tried everything: he doesn't want to die. I faced the same situation with my brother. Just love him and support him. That's all you can do.

    I'm so sorry Digby. There are so many "miracle cure" salesmen out there separating desperate people from their money. As Grandma would say, "That is lower than snakes hips."
