When do you notice the weight loss?

Me again.

Just wondering at what loss people started to notice the loss in themselves, as well as when others noticed (not that I care about this too much, just if they see it I might see it type of thing). It's WI today and only week 2, but I would like to see it at some point so I don't get too disheartened!

I'm 5'3, 11st13 (hopefully less - WI later), started at 12st3.5 and target is 10st.

it's different for different builds and heights. I am 5'10" it took a stone and half before others noticed and I felt it. I was size 12 on bottom and 14 on top and am now size 10/12.
Try measuring yourself. The difference is biggest in how your clothes fit.

Don't get disheartened, think about your health thanks

It took me 2.5 stone and 3.5 before anyone else noticed (or at least commented on it). I was 18 stone when I started though so not much of a comparison

Thing is people might notice but not comment because that could be seen as quite rude.

I've lost 17lbs, nobody has commented. But I'm still very overweight and have another 3-4stone to lose.

Thankyou all flowers I'm definitely going to keep going as I'm feeling better and I'll just have to see how it goes. WI at 530 (fingers crossed for a good loss) x

i started at about the same as you (same height as well) and it was at a stone off that people have really started to notice. I am 10st 12 now and really noticing a difference in my clothes
