I heard this today. I have to say I felt great hearing it. It's weird how you don't really notice much when looking in the mirror, which is why I tell people they really should take photos, measurements, and anything else OTHER than just relying on the scale. Those non-scale victories can save your sanity when you don't see any movement for days, weeks, or sometimes months.
It was nice to hear this from someone that I see periodically, but rare enough that he noticed. He said he's seeing it all over, but he specifically mentioned my face.
The photos above are taken three months apart. There is only 10 pounds' difference in my actual weight, but even I can see the difference in my face.
