But that is not the point of this post. The point is how different I think my body is at the same weight. Here are the things I can definitely tell are different:
1) I was a solid pant size 18 in high school, now I'm a solid 16.
2) I continued to *ahem* mature once I started college. I definitely have a more womanly figure.
My mom also thinks a lot of the difference has to do with my activity level. Let's be honest, once I stopped sports, I was pretty much sedentary. Now I exercise on a regular basis, and (hopefully) have more muscle.

Flipping through my scrapbooks to find an example of "heavy" high school me, I also came across really skinny high school me (post weight loss). It's nice to be reminded of what I'm working towards, and what I have the potential to be. I'm ready for that, but willing to be patient over the next few months so that I do it right, and I don't start all over again a few years from now. This is a life change. Forever.
