The Order

We, as woman (or men), love losing weight... if we're trying that is. My mom is from a completely different species. She attempts (and fails) at gaining weight. But I'm not writing this to get in a pissy mood... so I will move on.

I love that the scale is cooperating lately.. 7.6 pounds so far since April 28th. I can't believe I'm probably only a couple of weeks away from the 10 pound mark. SO EXCITING. But I got to thinking (and this isn't really a complaint, more fact stating than anything) about the places that my body loses first. It usually has always happened in this order. Trust me, years of diets and body abuse and I've pretty much memorized the pattern.

1. Face
2. Right under my knee cap (seriously)
3. Boobs (grrr)
4. Waist
5. Hips
6. Legs

Tonight I was looking at pictures from the same date that I "began AGAIN" and compared them to pics taken from just last week. Do you see anything? I looked and think maybe but I'm not sure... Maybe a hint less of my second chin??

Just for fun, I started the comparison with a pic from March of last year...

I definitely see it in your face with these shots. I lose in my face first, then my boobs. Yes, it sucks and I completely agree with you!

You are a very beautiful young lady. You don't look 178 lbs. I hope I look as good as you when I am 178 (hopefully in a few weeks ~ as I am right behind you ~ 184.4). Thanks for posting. I look to your site for motivation.
