    Hey gang!

    So even though I've lost 9 lbs so far, I'm not really "seeing" it.. like in the traditional sense. I've got the steering wheel test going on (the distance seems to get greater and greater!).. but a weird thing I noticed was last night.

    I was sitting in my mom's room on her bed.. watching TV with her and I was barefoot. And on my left foot.. on the top near the toes.... for a while now, I've had a patch of red blotchy dots. Almost look like a bunch of broken capilaries, except capilaries usually look kinda like lines.. not dots. Anyways... My father had this all over his lower legs and feet (my father pre-cancer was easily over 400 lbs!). They thought it was a circulation problem, but the doctor's checked it out and it wasn't. It was weight related, but they didn;t really know what the deal was.

    When my father lost all his weight, it went away.

    Last night I happened to look down at my left foot and lo and behold... the patch of blotchy spots has seriously faded! :eek:

    I'm soo giddy! :D:D:D:D

    Has any one else noticed other evidence of weight loss aside from the traditional clothes falling off and etc.?

    I wish I felt thinner! Maybe then I wouldn't have to look for other things.... like spots of my foot or the distance between my tummy and the steering wheel... :8855:

    My weird thing is, I have a tattoo onmy left shoulder. It goes from the back of my shoulder and over the top of it. I have noticed that it is "moving". There seems to be more of the tattoo of the top and front of my shoulder than there used to be. I have checked back on old photos and it's really happening. :confused:

    Hannah, those little red veins on your face are probably broken capillaries.. I have a few too...They usually show up on people with very fair translucent skin (me!!)... but I didn't know they could go away. I wonder if my father's went away too when he lost all his weight.... he had a ton on his cheeks and nose.

    Lind... I always wanted a tatoo... and when I was younger, I planned on getting one when I lost alot of weight.... but I'm a chicken when it comes to pain. I react in one of two ways.. I either pass out, or I want to get violent with the person inflicting it! :8855:

    lol I know, my hubby said it will shrink too, which I don't want because it's quite big but if it does I will just have to get more done to it.

    Another think I noticed was my shoes are getting too big for me!! I didn't even know I had fat feet to start with!! lol

    Oh I can't wait for that! I have huge feet! They are just so wide that buying shoes is a major problem. That and I walk funny, (haha, I roll on the out sides of my feet).. so I'm really hard on shoes. :cry: And I love shoes... but can't buy them....
