    I look in the mirror, I feel I look thin. I look down at myself...not so much. Perspective is weird.

    Truth.

    I thought that was just me!

    That despite being smaller/lighter than before, that I may be growing out of my fav brands’ tops in the shoulders. The waist/bust is plenty loose, but in anything but the stretchiest long sleeved top, the shoulders are starting to strain. Can’t size up for shoulders without this season’s looser tops looking like a circus tent, can’t size down for a more fitted look through the torso without arms being too tight/short. Bah. But still, yay for muscles.

    I feel this.

    That I would spend 90% (definitely exaggerating) of my time preparing meals.

    Dirty hair. Always.

    Also, that I would look real bad before I looked real good. I didnt lose a single pound for so long and would wake up bloated everyday for WEEKS at a time, only cause my body was not used to so much vegetables and fiber. Then suddenly sometihng clicked and one day I woke up looking leaner. Wouldve been nice to know!

    Surprise!!!!!!
