When did you first notice significant changes in your body?

    For me it was in mid October when I noticed that I could fit into certain clothes better than I could before. Sure they were still snug but the buttons weren't blasting off in all directions like they were before. And a few days ago before I got into the shower I noticed as I was brushing my teeth I noticed I lost a lot of weight in my face and that in that area between the neck shoulders and chest things looked more defined. Of course I look down to my stomach it looks like a deflated innertube but I'm actually seeing small progress there too.

    I notice people looking at me more than they used to. Of course me being neurotic I at first assume they thinking of ways to mock me but then it registers that sometimes they may like what they see. I'm so used to being as big as I was that it takes a bit of an adjustment to get used to being considerably slimmer.

    When did you first notice your working out was working for you?

    Going in the opposite direction, I always preferred fitted shirts and that used to mean a medium, so for me the milestone was when I could pull off a large.

    I know the feeling. Most of my shirts that used to be kinda tight now are like wearing sheets. On the one hand I'm like 'Damn I'm skinny' but on the other hand I'm like 'okay so no one is gonna see how thin I am because of this damn tarp!'

    I'll tell you when people start calling me muscle bear instead of twink icon_lol.gif!

    Seriously, I started off 120 lbs, and now I'm nearing 150. Not all of it has been muscle, but I certainly have improved a significant amount and I'm very proud of myself!

    Good for you Mashoga!

    Lol we need to trade bodies. I pack on pounds super quick and they stick. And it seems like you have a hard time packing weight on.

    What's your goal weight? 210? 240?

    Switching to a new belt notch is the major sign for me.


    Also - congrats on making progress toward your goal! Keep it up!!!

    Some time after I gave up watching for them.

    So it was kind of a shocker when I tried to get ready for a scuba vacation, after four or five years hiatus. I can't even come close to getting into my old wetsuit. (This also happened in my late 20's, when apparently, I finally finished puberty.) Even worse, they don't even make ones that fit me now, unless custom-made. XXL at the chest, L or ML at the waist.

    In fact, I don't think they even make them with waists any more.icon_rolleyes.gif
