i noticed that the legs on my dress pants arent as tight, especially in the thighs lol
Its a daily struggle but consistency not perfection will carry me to my goal.... Be careful of your thoughts, for your thoughts become your words. Be careful of your words, for your words become your actions. Be careful of your actions, for your actions become your habits. Be careful of your habits, for your habits become your character. Be careful of your character, for your character becomes your destiny."

KNUCKLES, a trick for that is to focus on one spot to look at, whether it be a spot on the wall or on the ground. I did track and field for a long time (I was a fielder, discus) but one of our stretching exercises was to hold one leg back and balance on another leg, so that was my trick to not fall over :)
My pants stay up better. Before I lost some inches in my waist, my belly was always pushing my waistband down and I was constantly yanking up my pants, even when I was wearing a belt. They are much more comfortable now.

Being able to do a full plank for a little longer every week. I use an actual timer so even though I only improve a few seconds each week it's measurable. I know my core strength is building and that makes me feel GREAT!
Mine are more related to how people see me. I have an aunt that was always concerned about my weight. In fact like 2 years ago I went to visit them (I lived far away at the time) and she later told my mom that she was "shocked" to see how big I had gotten. Our family has a history of health problems that relate to blood pressure etc so she is always concerned when someone is overweight. I live near them now and went to have dinner with them a few weeks ago and she couldn't stop talking about how good I looked and she was glad I was back to being healthy again. It just made me feel good that she wasn't disappointed in me anymore.
Also, a silly one, but I LOVE that I can wear knee high boots with skinny jeans now LOL Before, my calves were too big to fit into most of them. I pretty much live in my 2 pairs now, because I can!
