    Well, CONGRATULATIONS on your loss!
    You should be very proud of your self!

    Just remember, you said you look great in clothes, better than ever! Maybe just remind yourself of that often and try to get those nasty gremlins out of your head who remind you of the loose skin issue.

    I certainly have a few lbs I could stand to lose, but my weird thing is, I don't think of myself as chubby until I catch myself in a mirror. Then I say to myself, "who the heck is that"? I AVOID mirrors as best I can!

    But seriously, Im working on it. Taking baby steps.
