I notice how my body looks in my full length mirror, as I shower, and dress. Then as I lose weight, I see the changes even before my clothes or the scale show it I am already ready watching knowing that my thighs are smaller, the next week I can see my jeans fitting differently in the thigh area. This adds to my enjoyment of losing the weight.
This is especially helpful for me when the scale is not moving, and not moving, and Not Moving. I can tell I am losing fat and gaining muscle by the way my body is changing before my eyes.

Have a good shower after your workout in the morning, use a body scrubber and scrub, gently of course. My skin is soft as anything, and it seems to release toxins. I reckon it also improves circulation, the only thing is that I need another cool shower afterwards as I perspire all over again.
I have noticed a significant change in my skin, as well as losing some more weight.
Instead of reaching for additional snacks after dinner (which I love to do!!) I decided that when I feel the urge to nibble on something I probably shouldn't.. I throw in a little extra exercise!! I've been going for walks during the early evenings instead of snacking.
I have noticed a huge difference in my motivation with this new change!!
