Default 6 lbs makes so much more of a difference now!

Everyone kept telling me that as I get smaller, each lb lost will show more. I knew they were right but I am actually shocked at how right they were. I was looking at some pics from 2 weeks ago when I weighed 6 lbs more than I do now and there is already a huge difference! That is crazy!! When I first started losing it took about 50 lbs lost for anyone to be able to see any sort of change. I can't believe that 6 lbs lost can make my body look so different now!! I can't wait to see the next 6, 10, 20, 30 etc now. I hope that each lb lost continues to show more and more as I keep losing!!!

I've just started noticing this too. I noticed when 10 pounds made a huge difference, but now all of the sudden, these last 5 made a noticeable difference. Of course all five came off from the same place!

I'm really excited to see what happens with next 15. It kind of makes the long time it takes to a lose a pound a little more worth while.

You're doing great! I just peeked at your most recent update photo. You are absolutely stunning!

Isn't it great, Eliana!

The awesome thing is that now I think I will be more excited for every lb lost. I used to get a little bummed if I didn't lose at least 4-5 lbs a week. Now I know that a 1-3 lb weekly loss will probably make as big a difference to my appearance that a much larger loss did in the past.

And thanks so much for your sweet words!!
