Default My shrinking face.

I was looking at old pictures and it made me realize that, while I haven't quite seen any loss elsewhere on my body, I can definitely see it in my face! What a different 16 lbs can make... wow. I am also seeing a definite improvement in my complexion, which I have struggled with my whole life.

Around this time last year:

Wow what a difference and so funny you're posting about this since I've noticed the same difference in my face now and my driver's license that was taken 18 months ago. Just another coincidence huh? First cleaning and now this! lol.. But congratulations!

You all are too sweet! Thanks so much. I definitely see the biggest difference when I look at my driver's license (LOL Blonde!) from about 2 years ago. It's weird, I can even FEEL a difference when I touch my face... I can feel my cheekbones and jaw line. It's amazing!

OH! And my friend pointed out that it looks like I have a hickey on my chest but I promise it isn't! LOL. I think I just scratched there before I took the picture.

LOL Ohhkay8- Your friend is funny.. a hickey?? Yes I can definitely feel my cheekbones and my jaw is getting more refined again too. Those two things make your face look so much better doesn't it? What plan are you on? Calorie counting or?

LOL yes, a hickey! I told her I haven't had one of those since I was like 17 because I hate the look of them, and that she needs to grow up. :P

My cheekbones aren't quite as visible yet as I think they can be, and I predict my face will continue shrinking as I lose more. Yes, I do calorie counting. It's been kind of hard lately because I've been cooking whole meals for my roommate and I, and sometimes it's just impossible to individually measure everything and I have to estimate. But other than that, it really seems to be working for me. I'm unhappy today because of weight fluctuations, but hopefully in the next couple of days I'll be down again. I also do cardio for 40+ minutes at least 4 times a week, and am beginning to form a weight training routine.

Ah I'm doing calorie counting too or trying to! I'm going to check out your fitday journal and see if I can get myself set up with one since I do need something to help me learn how much calories something is for now. I see you've lost 15 pounds in one month and that's really admirable and inspiring so you've inspired me to step up my program especially working out! Thanks!

What an inspiration! This is great news to hear that it is possible that after sixteen pounds gone, the loss might be visible in the face. Honestly, at the moment I don't care about the size of my butt, but I check every day to see if my face might be thinner.

Blonde: Fitday is a lifesaver! I would probably THINK I was eating healthy everyday but actually overeat if I didn't have Fitday to put it right in my face. :P I never thought I could lose even 5 pounds... trust me, YOU CAN DO IT!!!

Geri: Don't worry, it will happen! For me, I didn't even notice any changes at all (and I haven't seen any noticable changes elsewhere on my body yet) but one day I looked in the mirrow and WOW, where did my face go? You'll get there!
