When lying in bed at night, you find yourself wrapping your arms around your shoulders... just because you CAN!

I had to go try the shoe thing out yesterday. I've noticed mine where getting loose, but I figured it was because they were old. I used to wear 8.5 - 9 before I gained all my wieght. Past couple years, I've been in 11's. Yesterday, went and tried some one...SIZE 9-1/2!!!!!!!!!! Shoes are so much cuter in smaller sizes

...when your co-worker pulls you aside and asks, "Have you had plastic surgery? Your cheekbones look higher and more defined than I remember." Not like I could lose the weight or anything At least it wasn't the "Did you do something with your hair" comment I usually get.

Oh yes, the hair comment! Whenever I lose a few pounds my hair miraculously calls a lot of attention to itself.

These are fun...I am enjoying my collarbone and bony shoulder tip right now. And Friday someone asked me, "You look great - ok, what is different? Hair color? Weight?"

For me though, my feet never change size (I have size 5-5.5 feet, depending on the shoe). I always have freakishly small feet and hands, no matter my weight; all my weight gathers at my torso

More:
-Your pants and even your underwear are sagging at the butt
-Holding "Boat pose" in yoga is no longer a dreaded form of torture
-Spanx is no longer a necessary part of the daily wardrobe to hide rolls

When your stomach no longer gets wet when you do dishes - simply because it no longer lops over the sink!

When your breasts no longer rest on your stomach.

When clothing no longer cuts off your circulation! Socks, hose, cuffs, necklines...

When guys can hug you and you feel like you're being cuddled instead of strongarmed. Do you remember those hugs? Like they couldn't even get both arms around your waist... good grief.

When you can gauge everyone's size clothing because of how you've watched your own progress :P

When you have to re-introduce yourself to someone you see infrequently. Happened to me this week with a co-worker who works in another office. Kinda embarrassing for both parties involved.

When you hug someone and are shocked at how easily you can reach around each other, and your massive boobs no longer get in the way so much.

I found a new one (for me) today! I know I've lost weight because I can cross my legs at my knees again! That was a very pleasant surprise!

When my ab lines start showing big time......so exciting!

When you have to go to the restroom at work and do the "tights dance" in private because tights that used to leave marks on your belly are now slipping and falling down around your hips!

Or- when your slimmer friend leaves a sweet coat in your car at the end of fall, and after months of trying, that bad boy zips! Boom! (She lives far away! I swear if she lived closer I would give her her coat back! Maybe :P)

When you've worked from home for 8 weeks while wearing nothing but sweats then you go back into the office and the business clothing you have is now too big. My pants are falling off me.
