The Whoooosh Fairy Does Exist!!

I found her! For the last month or so I have been stuck at 182. I had not been at that way in years and I thought maybe my body was just deciding this was a good weight. Well, finally over the weekend I dropped just below 180 (made a post about seeing the 170s) and since then have dropped about a half pound a day and am now at 178! So in the course of less than a week I dropped 4 pounds! Even better I dropped another pants size. I had just started fitting into my 12's when they started getting baggy. So when I was out Christmas shopping yesterday I decided to try on some size 10 Levis and they fit!!!!! So excited!! I don't think I have every comfortably fit into a 10 in my adult life!!

I'm not sure what finally caused the whoosh, however, about 2 weeks ago I started taking coconut oil daily, after reading about it on here. So I can't say definitively that this is what did it, but I'm a believer now in CO.

So for all of you who are stuck in a stall, hang in there! That whoosh will happen!

WHOOOOOSH FAIRY. I love it. I want a visit. I think one is coming my way also. been losing little slowly and eating clean, and I have that 'thinner' feeling so I think the WHOOOOSH fairy is coming my way.

CONGRATS ON THOSE 10s. that is what I want. 16s getting loose, 14s on my way and end up in 10s.

Your pic looks fab!!!!!

I think the coconut oil definitely helped. I added it and went from losing 1 pound in 3 weeks to losing 3 pounds in one week. I try to get in 2 tablespoons a day. The weight loss has continued to be steady, though not as fast as that first week.

Same here on the CO. I lost 4 lbs the first week but have slowed down now. Wish it would come back!

Yay!!! I am definately going to try coconut oil. I have been stuck at 170 for months. I was getting ready to accept it as my new set point but your post gave me some inspiration.

Stats: GO UCLA - BEAT USC. ALWAYS STAY POSITIVE
Ode to the Whoosh Fairy

Now I lay me down to sleep
A cup of Splenda at my feet!
I'll be good and drink my water--
Leave the grape juice for my daughter.
I promise to eat all my eggs,
So take these bulges from my legs!
I'll eat my pork--I'll eat a steer--
Just smooth these bumps off of my rear!
I'll never even look at jelly,
Pease take the blub out of my belly.
These lips will never taste a sweet,
(Oh if I could only see my feet!)
So, please, tonite before I wake,
A few more pounds--Whoosh Fairy--take!
