You can buy scales that measure body fat, I think Raine has one.
You will have no control over where the fat comes off, one day it may come off your face, another your stomach etc, or a bit of both.
When I first lost weight people said I looked ill, now they say I look good. I just think they have gotten used to me at my new weight :)
For example when I was overweight I had a really fat face, now it's thinner, you can see a bit of slack skin (in my opinion) but it will tighten up I think.
Anyway, now that I have got it, I intend to flaunt it... ha ha! So I uploaded a test pic to hot or not
, and so far I got a 9.3 out of 10, which I am pretty pleased with. I still have more to lose, and intend to work out, so hopefully things will improve.
Oh and according to my Tanita Innerscan scale, I am down from 33% body fat to 24%, a big improvement so far. More to follow :)
