Red face What are your favourite changes so far?

Just a fun post -- what changes in your body, mind , life, etc have you noticed and enjoyed most so far?

For me, I'm 11lbs down, which is just a fraction of what I want to lose, but I'm delighted anyway. I've already noticed changes...
  • Low carb has left me less bloated in my belly - yay!
  • I have more energy
  • Walking and climbing stairs are already easier than before
  • I'm cooking more things at home and saving money by not eating out

I am enjoying starting to feel stronger (I have retstarted my kettlebell workouts). I worked up to an 8kg kettlebell a few years ago so had to start back at 4kg.

For me, it's the physical fitness aspects. Last year I was the slowest person in my group of lady hiking buddies. This year I was the fastest. Last year walking caused my feet and knees to hurt - my feet would literally ache after a hike due to the extra weight I was carrying. Saturday I went on a 10 mile hike, my feet did not hurt after. Stuff like that. I notice things like that often- this used to hurt, now it doesn't.

Still early for me .
*My water buildup feels relieved when I eat far less and better.
*I have ever slightly more energy
*My choices in the closet is getting more fun.
*My mood is improving some. I hit
a big sadness while I was ignoring my extra #s.

I love hearing everyone's happy points! I can't wait to get to some of those myself...my closet choices haven't open up much yet, but I know it will come in time...I have a lot of really "flexible" clothes, so no need to move to others for quite a while.

Desire2b -- I was really sad too, my whole outlook is much lighter now, and much more positive. I feel like I've taken control.

Angie: to be honest, it's not so much I've chged enough to like my choice in the closet. It's more like I was already halfway between sizes. Ive been squishing myself into my clothes.


I'm happy to look better in them though.

Two new ones for me:

I'm not feeling hungry as often
My underwear and bras fit better

Desire2b -- I understand completely, and that's why I feel better in my undies this week, they just fit better and are more comfortable. I don't feel like my bras are so tight and pinchy.

My bras fit better, too- I don't have that dreaded side boob any more. My undies, on the other hand are hanging off my butt and I need to buy some new ones in a smaller size, haha.

Congrats ladies on those lost pounds.

I'm liking my newfound (refound) conscience eating.
the other day I ate a 3/4 cup of icecream. Not 5x that.
