Today I noticed for the first time that my belly button didn't look like just a deep hole anymore, the skin at the top of it was more taught, you know that little bit of skin where a piercing would go, like this...not to that extent yet, but exciting to see something changing :)
Another thing I noticed about a month ago, is button up shirts aren't bursting at the bust as much anymore - my chest hadn't shrank really at that point (it has a little bit now), so I took it as a sign I've lost back fat, yay! I really hated that! Especially when the space between 2 buttons would pucker leaving an opened hole giving everyone a nice view.
I used to have a belt like that too, Brett. The last time I lost weight I ended up having to punch three holes into it. Then, the end hung down so far that it looked silly so I threw it out, not thinking I might need it again. Silly me. I'm going to buy another good belt this weekend! Thanks for reminding me!
Other things I've noticed... My wife really likes my leaner shoulders and biceps (I can't wait until she is commenting about my lean stomach... that might take awhile though, lol). I want to do more things. I take my 6-year-old hiking on the weekends (2 hours = 1300 calories!). And last, but not least, my car doesn't get as many miles on it as it used to.
