    - being so pumped up in the locker room that you can hardly get into your fitted dress shirt
    - being so sore that you can hardly take off your clothes
    - (for previous lightweights) not being the skinniest, weakest guy in the gym anymore
    - subtle stretchmarks
    - surprised expressions from old friends and relatives
    - feeling exhausted at bedtime and feeling alive in the morning

    ...You?

    - putting your effort into something more than what other people are focused on.
    - being in better shape than people around you.
    - what you said
    - the pain

    Gap sucks. Fuckers at the outlet mall only had one pair of 36 length, and they were carpenters

    when people do double takes

    family/old friends don't recognize you :mamoru:
    -ex. This weekend was my little brothers last college football game and some of his buds from HS came into town to see him. Most of them didn't even recognise me.

    -This past August at a wedding one of my close cousins didn't even know who I was. :o

    -One of my Aunts was telling her sister that I had lost weight and was the same size as she was. So the other sister called my mom to confirm :rofl: "You know how Faye will lie about stuff.... " :rofl: :rofl:

    Being able to actually shop at neater places.. even though some of the clothing stores have seemed to of increased the size of their clothings.. unless I just didn't notice this at first :o

    -jogging next to "smaller" people at the gym and outlasting them :o ....... wait.. I did that when I was +50lbs as well :o

    -I don't get fluid around my knees anymore after a hard workout

    -my GERD is under control. I haven't had an episode in almost a year :wiggle:

    - going into clothing stores and trying on a ton of clothes b/c you seriously have no clue what size you currently are.

    -start noticing that you actually do have a shape :eek3:

    -start noticing that you have more than a few ways of sitting in your chair at work :rofl:

    -attitude and outlook on things are pretty much the same with a few adjustments for the best and you didn't turn into one of those "look at me now I think I'm all that" bitches. :rofl:

    oh and I love this one! "OMG you're looking GREAT!! Not that you didn't look fine before, buy you know.. you're looking better... uhh... younger" :mamoru:

    Edit--------
    to add...
    -knowing and hearing from others how your progress has inspired and motivated them :big grin:

    Seems you are, it was a good post and on-topic.

    Seeing your gains surpass those on steroids ( :highschool: ) and actually keeping them.
    Being able to flex and make your body look weird in many ways.
    Having people who have known you since you started working ask you how you did it.
    Having friends comment on how much smaller you've gotten to try to boost their self-esteem.
    Being introduced to family-friends as 'the health nut of the family'.
    Surpassing the size of the guy who motivated you to start working out.
    Having a new girlfriend tell you you have the best body she's ever seen.
    And most importantly, seeing your numbers go up weekly.
