First Pants size drop. . .

I've been a 50 inch waist for like 7 years. They are baggggy on me now. I pulled some old 48 jeans from the closet and they fit fine now. . . Woo hoo!

I started my bike riding with 38 pants and now I still wear the 38's. I guess im using bike riding as a excuss to eat out alot.

There's nothing more motivating (well, almost) like a drop in clothing size! Kudos!

Congratulations! My old shorts feel too big now too, but it could just be that they're sliding down my new spandex undershorts.

That's fantastic. I was squeezing myself into 48s for a couple of years before I started WW in April. Now I'm a little loose in my 42s. The next pants purchase will be 40. Since my current job doesn't require nice dress (I work for a home builder), I've been getting the $13 jeans at Costco. They're cheap enough it doesn't bother me that they'll soon be going into the Goodwill/Amvets pile.

Feels great, doesn't it?
