I like this one, very positive!

1. shopping- buying many sizes smaller than I used to wear!
2. wearing sexy lingerie
3. being able to do most anything physically
4. My husband telling me I'm "HOT" when we got out, and other men noticing!

Not having any back fat, so that when I wear a tight little dress, there is nothing bulging out around my bra :)
That and seeing the muscle definition when I flex them - awesome.

1. More choices when clothes shopping.
2. Bathing Suit - haven't worn one since high school.
3. Wearing short sleeved shirts that don't come down to my elbows.
4. Being the fun, energetic mom - not the fat mom.
5. Having other people (especially men) notice that I lost weight.

I love that I can now do anything I want to without pausing to think "how bad will I look doing it".

Arching my back and looking in a mirror at the ribs and muscles that doing so exposes
Feeling that I look good in whatever I'm wearing

That even though I'm not at my goal, I feel better and better every week. Every week my jeans get a little looser, every week my arms are less jiggly. It gives me what I need to keep going.

My favorite thing is having others notice that I am making strides to get healthy. Just the other day a doctor at my office asked me what I was doing to look so good. She applauded me for my accomplishment (40 lb. loss) and told me to keep it up!
(shopping for new clothes, etc. doesn't hurt either!)

I love that I went bridesmaid dress shopping with several friends and for the first time in my life all of the sample dresses slipped on and zipped up perfectly!

I love that I can now run 6 miles because my body isn't in pain from the extra weight.

I love that my stomach doesn't get in the way anymore when painting my toenails, crossing my legs, doing certain yoga poses etc.

I love that knowing that I'm ensuring a healthier, longer life by making positive changes to my lifestyle. I feel fabulous at a healthy weight.

Having strangers talk to me - like in lines or elevators. I didn't realize until recently that my fat had made me *that* subhuman.
