I have been exercising a lot- walking in the morning and then doing another activity of some kind at night. I have also been eating right - lots of veggies, which I would never have eaten before. I am watching my carbs, but not doing Atkins.
Great job Froggie--I'm so proud of you! You've worked hard to get to this point so you have every right to show off your stuff!!!!
I know what you mean about the bathing suit and having white legs. My legs could blind someone!!!My hubby will often ask why I put my pj's back on (when getting up at night to visit the bathroom) and I tell him it's because I'm so white I glow in the dark!!!LOL Wouldn't want him to think there was a ghost in the house!!! And I think being tan makes you look a little thinner--maybe it's just me! Anyhow, I'll admit--I'm a sun worshipper; though I always make sure I have some form of sunscreen on. I can't wait to start turning that golden brown!!!!
Anyway, congrats on your loss. Just goes to prove that good old eating right and exercising still does work!!! Your an inspiration to all of us!I've no doubt that you will reach your goal soon!
Froggie98, congratulations. It's so much fun to waste money on clothes when it means buying a smaller size. I did that this weekend too. Bought some new pants that I didn't really need, but just wanted to be able to reach for that size 30 waist. It felt particularly good cause the brand I get doesn't come in a smaller size than that. The only problem is my belly still isn't flat. I'm down to 13.3% body fat. I think I have to get it down to 10% to make it flat.
To you and jennielynn, some of us guys like women with pale skin. That probably sounds wierd, but I've always felt there was something very pure about milky white skin. I'll take a woman with that than one who looks like she lives at the beach.
I wouldn't tan just to make yourself look thinner. That's like wearing black. In the end, it's just a cover. Wouldn't you rather BE thin instead of having to come up with tricks to make yourself LOOK thin? That's why I always wear light colored pants. Anything to make me feel self-conscious and just uncomfortable enough to want to keep working hard at weight loss.
Didn't mean to imply that I was a die-hard tanner! Just like to have a little color. I've seen women with skin that looks like leather because of tanning constantly--natural or not. I'm blonde--so naturally I'm very pale. But, like I said before--I'm also very adamant about using sunscreen. Due to my pale complexion; I do worry about developing skin cancer.

Did you just start on your weight loss plan? If so, then you'll see a big drop in weight in the first week, like 5-10 pounds. But most of this is water. As far as how long it takes to see changes, I think it varies for each person. I know it took me over 3 months to lose 2 inches off my waist. But I think that's because I'm not too far from my ideal waist size.
