Default Only a few weeks in and allready results (pics)

I've been on Induction since Jan 3rd, and tomorrow (well today) will be day 14! I decided to stay on a little bit longer. I'm not sure how much I've lost because I don't have a scale, and I'm patiently waiting for the one I ordered to come in the mail =). The weight I have as my current weight in my stats is from a doctor's visit a few days before christmas, and my "before" weight is before I started Atkins the first time in 2002. I figured I'd keep it because I didn't gain it *all* back.......

so today, I found an old pair of glasses I wore in high school and took a picture of myself to see how they look. I was really quite surprised at how different my face looked, and I guess I didn't notice it in the mirror. I'm actually starting to get a NECK, and my nose is starting to look bigger or something compared to the rest of my face!

here's a before pic from a new years eve party....

and here's a pic I just took!

I was really surprised by that picture, so I tried to take a purposely unflattering picture of myself puffing out my cheeks to make myself look fat! haha, nope, I look silly, but NOT fat!

The first of hopefully many more progress photos
