I am beyond thrilled with the results of my arms. I was so terrified of bat wings! But they're toned almost sculpted and I can rock a tank top. Surprisingly I'm coming to enjoy being slightly small breasted again, they're a little more deflated looking than I'd like, but it seems like there's been so e improvement. From about my mid thigh down my legs are amazing! I love seeing the bones in my hands and feet and my collarbone is great. Looking at this list it's seems that there are a lot more likes than dislikes, I only have 3 dislikes - but this thread isn't about those!

Today 140s & training for my Health "There is nothing you can't have tomorrow so there is no reason to eat it all today."
Right now I can't get enough of my ankles and feet! I used to retain water SO badly, but since I've been more active and losing weight that is all gone! I can see the bones, tendons and veins in my feet and I no longer have to buy wide shoes! And there is this weird bone running down the front of my calf...never felt THAT before!

I want my awesome butt back. I used to have the greatest butt, I'm talking celebrity J-Lo, Beyonce butt on a white girl, make all the guys eyes fall out of their skull butt. And then i RUINED IT WITH PASTA AND CHIPS AND OTHER THINGS THAT WERE NOT WORTH IT! I WANT IT BACK!
Also, my collarbones, hipbones, chin/neck, dimpleless legs, slender fingers, non-wide feet, my back line (as in that line of your spine that's so ladylike and elegant and not full of rolls.
God i can't wait.

My shoulders and back. Did you know that simply by walking absolutely everywhere, and routinely carrying home tons of fresh vegetables and fruits, amongst other things, you can give your shoulders and back the kind of workout that builds amazingly defined muscles? I didn't, either. With a little help from lycra tights, my legs are totally stonking, as well. (See: "walking absolutely everywhere."

I want to see a long, lean neck framed by beautiful collar bones. I want toned arms so I too can rock a tank top! Oh and I want an awesome butt and a flat stomach. Ohhhhh how I want a flat stomach....or even a slightly rounded tummy. Anything but what it is today.
