Still a way to go, but it's nice buying clothes without having to-----

Yeah, I know---it may not sound like a big deal, but being able to buy clothes without having to go to the 'big bloke's section,' or walking into a shop and saying, 'Ok, what have you got that fits me!' Hell, I remember buying T-shirts and getting them home and taking a look at what was written on them. Imagine the shock when I realized that it said, 'Genuine Ladies Man,' or something that was so un-PC that I blushed! Not for long of course, but now I can spend time actually looking at my clothing options and not being embarrassed. Now, I know that it has all been worth it--- eating less, feeling better and being able to move normally. I have even stopped making silly jokes about being a marooned whale, waiting to be harpooned and now joining Greenpeace would be a real event. The picture is of me in normal sized clothes. I still have a way to go but this journey is delivering results.
