Thank you much for your comments, I feel a bit awkward gloating and rarely do but I figured I would like to really show others that this works, especially if you're starting out. If I can impart anything to you it's to just let yourself sort of dissolve into this way of eating. You may be strict right now but it won't be like that indefinitely. I have had periods of time where I jsut sort of binged but I binge on low fat plant-based foods, like almost no fat chocolate cake. Working out started S L O W, almost like a train. I very gradually increased and over time, and only when my body told me "yeah go ahead, push ahead another 20 minutes" or whatever is when I did. Allowing yourself to love what you're doing helps, and the love of eating right and exercise slowly develops until it just isnt any big deal. Lifestyle changes become permanent and the next thing you know you have to go shopping - again - because the clothes dont fit. Lastly (and sorry to preach here), stalls are common and the loss will kick back in, and what is your first goal can be up-ed again and again. There is no time limit, if you stick with it and make it a part of yourself and get creative with tasty, healthy food you can be any size, shape or weight you want.
P.S. yes there is a size 0 as i found out, there's actually a 00.
