I am taking up less room in the tub when I have a bath. This is really neat. Honestly, I still sort of feel like a bit of a beached whale while in there, but I can tell that I am displacing less water now and that my form does not so neatly fill the whole of the basin. So, there is definitely progress there.
Also – and this is an odd one – I realized yesterday that I seem to be producing less ear wax. Not to imply that my body created a large amount prior to making healthier choices, but since I have started this journey I am certainly less aware of any minor build-ups. It’s strange the things that you notice when you drastically alter your lifestyle.
Despite changes that I am noticing, the majority of the people in my life are still apparently unaware of the fact that I am losing. My husband gets full disclosure, and my mother knows about the majority of the changes I have made, but most friends and family still seem to be oblivious to what I have been doing and how hard I have been working at it.
My mom did tell me that my head looks smaller. I chuckled when I heard that because I couldn’t figure out whether it was a compliment or not! She meant that my face has thinned out a bit from the weight loss which means it looks littler atop my still rather large body. I’ll take it! Praise is what you make of it.
