Default Strange thing that make you see progress.

So yesterday I noticed I am getting "bat wings". At first I was like NOOOOOO! Then it hit me. I have lost enough weight in my arms that I have loose skin there.

Today it dawned on me, I bet others notice "strange" things as progress as well, so what have you noticed that has made you think "look how far I have come!"?

This is strange but I was sitting on the loo and notice a tendon by my knee and muscle definition starting in my thighs.

I was laying on my back the other day and I felt an ab muscle. (It's still well hidden, but it's there).

I also have bat wings - my arms look freakishly small from some angles, as do my knees. And in the TMI department my ahem, lady bits are definitely showing signs of loss.

there now is a big flat space between my breasts where they sit on my chest where it used to be filled with boobs...weirdest thing EVER!

i can see a collarbone for the first time that i can ever remember my ankles and knees are much bonier now and that freaks me out....i can see tendons on the tops of my hands and that also freaks me out....and my nose seems to have gotten smaller wth? lol

i think, in general, being able to see my "inner" body parts through my skin (bones etc) really creeps me out in a weird way and i'm not even sure why....maybe because i have an irrational fear of starving to death....which is why, going down this train of thought, i've always struggled with overeating etc

Of all things, my earlobes have lost weight! They used to be too fat to snap the backings into those little grooves.

Collar bones, fo sho.

I have recently noticed these weird pockets of fat I use to have have just vanished. I had a clump on the top of my inner shin, like right below my knees... That's gone. and the same sort of clump sitting on my upper arms. Now they are still fairly large and have a mighty circumference, but they are smoooooth.

I thought about googling "exercises to lose my "FUPA", LOL! I guess I haven't got that desperate yet... lol...

I certainly have loose skin. I remind myself that it is evidence of my weight loss. My wrist and hands fascinate me. I can really see the difference there, in a positive way.

The other day my boyfriend was holding my hand when he got a weird look on his face. I asked him what was wrong and he said "I can feel handbones." I looked and by gum, you can see some of my bones moving under the skin now. I grabbed his hand and said "I can feel yours too!" Then we giggled at the funny places we're losing weight.

I noticed that I am starting to have a little crescent under my bum cheeks, and a nice curvature from my lower back into my bum. I forgot what that was like after year of having a fat person's flat back/butt/thigh transitional area.

@smashlers, already googled it and they said it's one of the last places you lose weight and there aren't really exercises for it. xD
