    What odd things have you noticed besides the scale going down?
    The funniest thing that i noticed this morning was my 'fat role crease mark' has moved down 2 inches towards my belly button!
    heh heh

    I'm not sure how odd it is, but a few weeks ago I was able to see the bottom of my belly button for the first time in my life.

    Yeah i've had the vein thing, posted a pic in the media section a few months back where I had a tonne of veins creeping up from my waist :D

    It's also nice when under your belly button it's just flat, not bumps.
    Sadly for me I've lost a fair bit of vascularity and gained a bit of fat as a result of trying to bulk and not eating enough of the right food, but I can get it back :)

    My shorts won't stay on w/out a belt now. This almost became a problem at the airport because my belt buckle was causing the metal detector to go off. I had to hold my shorts up while I walked through the second time.

    My wedding ring slides off the finger easily now. In fact, it slides up and down my finger as I move my hands doing normal daily stuff.
    Kinda makes me realize how long it has been since I've been in decent shape. Been married 8 years :D

    Since I've been working out, eating right, and losing weight, I've mainly been looking at my love handles and abs to see my progress. The other day someone told me my face looks like it's getting skinner. I looked in the mirror and they were right. Needless to say I was surprised and pleased with that. I can't believe I never noticed it before. I guess when you get obsessed with certain parts of your body, you don't notice improvements in other areas.

    Veins in my hands (i never had that before), the veins around my biceps are showing, and my forearms are getting more defined, the face ofcourse aswell.

    I've got a long way to go though untill I'm happy.

    When I shake my stomach/torso, it takes less than a second to stop jiggling ... Previously it took as much as 2 or 3 (full) seconds. :lol:

    man I know that one.... I can put it on any finger on my hand now. Even my Thumb :tu: . Bad thing is that it's titanium, so it can't get resized and my wife is pushing me to get a new one So I can wear it again. :lol:


    Another side effect.... I can't hold liquor AT ALL(which I use to be able). I had my first drink since the start at around 6 months. I found out the hard way
    1 shot = buzzed
    3 shots = Whats my name ??? lol

    I've got muscles I have never seen in my life! I look at my arm and go "What the hell is that? Sweet!" Then I flex it for 20 minutes and get bored.

    Can't wait 'til I can see my, well, that area down there, without needing a mirror. :o

    I saw veins in my quads for the first time not too long ago! That was pretty cool!

    This is a great thread, lots of cool replies.

    Bored?? Never!! Im constantly tensing my biceps, still getting used to the idea of having them (may never happen.. getting used to that is)

    Acne since losing weight my Acne has cleared up completely, i have biceps and clear skin :jumping: oh and also when i was fat my skin colour had this dull pale look to it always got remarks about that, kind of zombie-esque. Now people coment on how nice my skin tone is, from girls of all people!!
