But I was noticing that the sleeves of the red silk shirt I use as a pajama top were falling over my wrist and getting in the way if I didn't push them up. And I'd had to tighten my bra straps.
So I looked. I've lost in my upper arms. Also in my hips and thighs, but I wear petite-length pants, so I didn't notice. But the t-shirt that used to be snug around the hips now falls loosely. And my face is thinner. I still have a double chin, but now my cheeks don't look fat.
And it's been completely painless. I haven't been dieting, but I have been watching what I eat and trying to keep track of calories. I haven't been depriving myself.
I still need to increase my activity level; I'd like to have better endurance by the time Worldcon comes around.
