Just a little update; thought we'd given our scale to my MIL, but amidst cleaning up for our holiday house guests, stumbled upon it! Out of curiosity, I stood on the scale! From 190 to 149.5 I'm happy! I literally can't remember the last time I was under 150; Even as a slender size 5/6 I weighed 140, so to be within 9.5 pounds of that? Happy dance, happy dance!
