Weight, measurements and sizes - oh my!

I'm 2.5 weeks out from surgery and I'm pretty pleased today.  As you know, I have been really worried about gaining weight back while I'm not allowed to exercise.  I stepped on the scale today and weighed in at 129.2.  That's 7 pounds, 2 ounces lighter then when I went into surgery.  Since he took 6 pounds 10 ounces of skin, I clearly have been doing better then I thought at eating okay.  I'd like to get down to 120, so I still would like to lose a few more pounds, but I'm not as stressed as I was, especially since I get to start working out next week.

I also did some measurements today, as the swelling is pretty low in the morning.  I am 1 inch smaller in the bra strap area, 6 inches smaller in the waist area, and 5 inches smaller in the hips then the day before surgery.  It's pretty exciting.  I don't imagine I'll go much smaller then this.  

Yesterday I went to put on a pair of jeans and remembered that I kept a pair of my fat jeans.  I've done away with all my other clothes, but I wanted to keep something as a reminder.  Well, here it is....

Yes, believe it or not, those jeans used to fit me!
