    I lost 90 pds in 1 year (still have 30 to hit my goal)...

    1. Certain things become so easy. Ex: painting your toes, tying your shoes, etc.

    2. Now I get when people say it is cold. I used to be warm all the time...

    3. You even lose weight in your feet. You will change size.

    4. Sorry for this but... cleaning up after bathroom trips is different 🤭😜

    5. You will wake up feeling really rested bc the quality of your sleep will be 10 x better.

    6. It will help regulate your hormones...

    I have so many, the list can go on and on... lol

    I'm really hoping for this part. Mine were really off a few months ago according to bloodwork.

    The fat seems to re-distribute. At least it did for me. When I lost my 20lbs of weight, my butt was much smaller, stomach still poochy, and boobs totally deflated. Several months later of maintenance, my boobs have filled back in a bit, and my stomach seems less poochy. So there's hope that all the wierd places you're* losing will balance out.

    *You as a general audience. Not any one person in particular.

    Unfortunately, I've had the opposite reaction. I lost the first 35lbs (of 42lbs) rather quickly, over 6 months. I retained my boobs.

    Lost 7lbs over the next 6 months, lost my boobs.

    Of course, I'm also a lot closer to my ultimate goal. I'm down into the "normal" body fat range (by estimates, haven't had dexa or anything). It may just be that my body held on to my boobs as long as it had "extra" fat, but when I got down to less fat they had to go.

    It's kind of funny how fat loss seems to go. My boobs are always the first to go. My stomach being dead last. As a matter of fact, I'm going in for the last 10 (maybe 15) lbs by summer/fall right now. They're deflating again! Gah! But when I maintained my current weight for 6 months, they did seem to fill in a little. So maybe they'll come back again.. I hope.

    Right there with ya! I was so excited to have a little fullness when I was bulking. Now that I'm cutting... :sad:

    Sitting with your legs crossed is the most comfortable thing ever. For twenty years I was too fat to comfortably cross my legs, and I HAVE NO IDEA HOW I LIVED.

    (I used to sit with my belly brushing the edge of my desk. Now I can cross my legs under it and still have space left over. That's weird.)

    This! :D
