Little Victory- Slimmer face!

I've only been low carbing for 3 weeks and just restarted induction on Monday (had a flu over the weekend) and while I've only lost 5 pounds so far- my face is DRAMATICALLY slimmer. I feel like at least a half pound came off my jowls, chin and cheeks. Now if the rest of my body could catch up... Total motivational boost!

Congratulations! Isn't it crazy (in a good way) that the non-scale victories are the biggest motivators for us sometimes?!! And just think, the best is yet to come. Keep up the good work!

That is so so great! Good for you! I notice it the most in my face (and I suppose shoulders) as well. The doors of the elevator I take at work are metallic and basically mirrors. I was so taken with my face yesterday that when the doors opened so I could get off on my floor, I realized I had been sort of making flirty eyes at myself in the door without realizing it...and there were like 6 people in there will me....good thing I only ride that elevator every day and am very likely to see all of those people again lol!

Honestly, I wish my chest would go down! I seem to struggle the most with having a large chest for my small frame. It will go down.... hopefully

If anyone has ANY thoughts on how to decrease breast size, feel free to comment)

Congrats on the victory! I can't wait to see the difference in my own face, too bad I think it will be one of the last things to change.
