Default NSV-- is that me?!?

Today at the gym I caught a glimpse of my reflection in the mirror. I had to do a double take because I didn't recognize myself. I'm not as round as I used to be! I no longer look or feel ridiculous in spandex. Yeah, I still have a ways to go, but it's nice to really like what I see!

Thanks, everyone!
As much as I'd love to hop on the scale and see a 50 lb loss, I've had to lock the scale in the spare room. I was weighing multiple times a day, which is not good.
I'll know on Wednesday, the day I remove the evil scale and weigh in.

Yay. I've lost about 55lbs and I do the same thing. I can't believe it's ME I'm seeing...especially when I'm in Zumba class and see myself dancing in the mirrors. Or when I take pictures.. I use to have to turn and tilt my head for a good angle, and now it's just a lot slimmer.
