It is very hard for me to see the changes in myself, and even when I *do* see them, I tend to talk myself *out* of seeing them because I am just that insecure. A mirror is my arch-nemesis!!

I've started the 30-day shred and been at it 8 days now. (yay!) That's not the NSV, though. There are some undeniable signs of weight loss, like smaller clothes, etc. But I never thought I'd come across this.

A couple of days ago, I get in my car to drive to work. As usual, I'm running late. My car's a standard, so I throw it in gear but something's off. I feel like something's not quite right.

It hits me.

I've lost enough butt and gutt to sit me further back in the seat and my feet have a hard time reaching the pedal, much less shove the clutch all the way in to put the car in gear.

Never thought I'd live to see the day that I would say to myself, "my car is too big"!

This is not one of those things that *can* be ignored! Car's don't lie, nor do they stretch or shrink! So I guess I gotta believe I'm losing it!

I have experienced the cheeks+sunglasses, too. It's awesome when suddenly these things speak up and go, "HAY. YOU'VE LOST WEIGHT!"

Now, if only I could buy cars as easily as getting another pair of pants... ;)

That's awesome!! I've noticed the seatbelt connection thing doesn't jab me in the side of my butt anymore! You're right, cars don't lie! :)

I love NSV's like that :). Ive noticed i dont have to reel the seatbelt out for ages to get it to reach the latch. I'm not quite to where i can latch it in one movement, but I'm making progress :)
August 8, 2012 11:33 PM
haha thats great :D
August 8, 2012 11:39 PM
I love NSV's too and am longing for the day I have a few to share. Right now I sit right against the steering wheel in my car to reach the pedals anyway, but at least there is room to move closer if I wear away my stomach. LOL
