    What little things have you noticed while losing weight? Silly little things.

    I had a riding lesson on Sunday and my instructor told me to tighten the strap on my hat. Due to the fact I have no double chin now it was loose. I never noticed :D

    My favourite skirt is longer and not skin tight round my bottom.
    I already have a little more energy and did quite an energetic belly dance to one of my beonce knowles records about half an hour ago. It wasnt a pretty sight lol, but my dog didnt mind.

    Anyway, mine so far is that I don't have so much back pain! I am sure there will be loads more as time goes on and weight comes off! x

    The water in the bath actually goes down without my backside damming it up so there is a gush when I stand up!!
    Agree about clothes being longer and being able to paint nails.

    Not pulling clothes away from my tummy when I sit down as they don't cling as much as they used to....

    I have found that the clothes that I thought all this time 'must have shrunk in the wash' now are roomy bordering on the too big size!
    My swimming cozzy was biting into my shoulders because my tummy took up so much room now it fits fine, if a bit loose

    Good question!!!

    I can do up the buckles on my shoes without my stomach getting in the way (or having to ask my husband to do them up!), a towel wraps round and overlaps, I can wear skinny jeans without my stomach bulging out, my knees don't hurt going up stairs and I feel more confident and happier with myself! Yes I will definately carry on with this diet......

    That my jean waistband doesnt dig in and hurt me when I sit down anymore. It's such a good feeling.
