    That is awesome!!! So the only real changes you are making is smaller portions and more water?  I just “gave up” soft drinks about a week ago and I feel better!

    I notice it in the way my pants fit (or don’t) especially jeans. Other people seem to notice it in my face. I went down barely 10 pounds once and had several people comment about how thin I looked.

    Congrats on living healthier, keep it up!

    @kala_way: I am the same, Its in the face for me. I cant get the face and the body to match up. When the body is the weight I want and looks the way I want, my face is sunken and gaunt.

    That’s awesome! I love how you are going to celebrate too!

    When I started getting rid of the freshman 10 (or 17 really), my jeans fit differently. I wish my chest had deflated though- but you can’t win them all, and Darling Husband is happy those are still around.

    I picked stomach/waist, although I should have picked “other” because my weight loss has been all over the place.  It started off in the stomach/waist area, and sadly, my boobs, where I’ve NEVER gone down before.  My ring size has gone down a shocking amount – from a 7 to a 5 1/2!  And I swear to God, even my feet have shrunk, but I think that could be just my imagination. Wink  For months, it was really just that area, until almost literally overnight, my legs finally started to go down.  Unfortunately, this did not include my hips to a great extent (gotta love those childbearing hips!).  Still, 71 pounds down, and I am thrilled with how I look now.  I still have about 10-15 pounds to go, but I wouldn’t be heartbroken if I didn’t lose it.

    My face! I get chubby cheeks really, really quickly. Its not fair lol. If I gain 10 pounds I look way chubbier than I am because my cheeks are packing all the heat 🙁

    The weight I lost in the spring came off mainly from my belly. I’ve gained some of it back, and that’s all over.

    Keep it up!  I have lost 20 lbs over all.  I knew my clothes were fitting better but the real surprise was yesterday when I went to try on my wedding dress for the first time (she came in on Monday) and it was falling off me, literally.  I had to have one hand on it to keep it up even after the corset was tied as tight as they could get it.  I was so ecstatic!
