I guess the weight loss really is showing... - the funcrunch files

Sep. 9th, 2009 10:44 pm I guess the weight loss really is showing...

I just made my first hair salon visit since quitting my day job last October. I'd been dying it at home in the interim, but after 11 months figured I could afford the luxury of a professional touch-up and trim. Even though I didn't change the color or style, I took my usual "after" photo:

First haircut in 11 months

Then out of curiosity I went back to the shot boyziggy took of me after I first had my hair color changed back to black at that salon visit last October:

Back to black

Is it just me or does my face actually look noticeably thinner? Am I finally getting rid of my double chin? It's always been the last thing to go. I have lost fifteen pounds since November, which isn't a huge amount, but a substantial portion of my body weight I suppose since I'm down to 130 lbs from 145. Not trying to be overly vain, just sincerely curious...

I noticed a significant difference. (nods)

*nods* Yes, very noticeable.

Actually, you can even see it a little in the curve of your shoulders. They are slightly more angular now. It might just be the way you are holding them. I am noticing shoulders lately, as I have noticed mine being particularly poke-y-bone-y lately.

Losing 10% of your body weight is pretty big! And yeah, for me, it felt like there was a particular weight-point when it really started showing in my face. I can see a real difference in those photos. And when you posted your (grim & exhausted!) post-race photo a couple of week back, I was struck by how much thinner you look.
