Am I getting shorter?
 
Seriously, I put a shirt on this morning and I swear it's longer on me! :hyst: I can only assume that since I've lost a few inches, the fat distribution has changed and my stomach isn't sticking out as much. Did that make ANY sense at all? :hyst: Or am I just full of it? :D

Yes, well, they don't tell you that the weight you lose from low-carb is all vertical inches, do they?

~ducks, before Gibbss throws something~

Ah Ha ha ha! Bet it's your tummy! I sure don't wanna get Shorter! I'm short enough already! LOL!!

LOL I've been noticing this lately too! :laugh: Just yesterday I was trying on things at the store, and I kept thinking... "That's funny. I don't remember these shirts going down that far on my body. They're too long! I wonder if they changed the design this year."

Yeah, I'm pretty sure we're just shrinking :jumpjoy: Just... hopefully not in the vertical sense, because I can't afford to get any shorter either :hyst:

I also noticed this just yesterday too! I wear my shirts long in a ridiculous attempt to try and hide some of my fat (as if that's possible!), and I noticed yesterday that the shirt I was wearing was even longer than usual! I'm used to my clothes mysteriously shrinking in the wash, but never getting longer! :)

I hate this part of losing. Some of mine were plenty long before. Now I'm afraid I'm going to trip over them. Time to add them to the donate pile.

Funny thing is, is that a friend I haven't seen since I lost 25lbs told me I looked shorter.

funny that you say that. People sometimes notice that something is different but for some reason they can't quite ID what that change is.
I had a thick moustache for many years in my twenties. When I finally shaved it off I had people say all kinds of things. "Did you lose weight"? "Have you been sick"? did you get a hair cut? funny but true.
Keep at it though and even the most clueless of your friends will see the changes for what they are.
