    hiya carla,
    this varies from one person to another due to a few factors.
    for example, the more u weigh , the more u have to lose to notice a real difference.
    ive now lost 37lbs and ppl are now starting to notice, whereas if i weighed 11 stone and then lost 37 lbs (other than looking very ill, lol) ppl would have noticed much sooner.
    ppl often say that when they are closer to target they even notice a 2lb loss.
    the other factor is where u lose ur weight. i seem to be losing most of mine around my hips and shoulders, whereas some ppl lose weight from their face, making it more noticable to others.
    hope this helps (geez, just read this back, i can really talk for britain huh. :rotflmao: )

    I lost about 5stone before anyone *on the street* as it were, noticed. Family noticed sooner of course. But I am short and was very big, so looked very big whether I was 16, 15, 14, 13, 12 etc...I got comments at 11. By the time I got to 10 it was comments of *oooooh, don't lose any more love, you'll look gaunt! It's aging it is! It won't suit you!* How anyone can look gaunt at 5'2 and 10 stone is beyond me:rolleyes::D

    I was 12 stone 7 on Tuesday and weigh 12 stone 1 now, and I myself can already notice the difference, I reckon people will notice after another stone.

    Hello!!

    hate to tell you but, with me, it took a good 4 stone off before people (who didnt know I was dieting) started commenting. (people who did know said it to me sooner, of course, but I think for encouragement more than notable difference) BUT then, I was 18 stone when I started - so much bigger than you!!!. xx best of luck xxx

    I haven't told anyone i'm doing this diet. I've lost over 1 1/2 stone and dropped 2 dress sizes since I started 5 weeks ago.
    I saw my family this week for the first time since the 2nd week and no one mentioned anything.
    The sad thing is, if i'd gone up 2 dress sizes they certainly would have had something to say.
    Hopefully by the next 5 weeks someone will notice, lol.

    hi
    people noticed when i lost about 3-4 stone! (but i have 8 to lose!) also more noticed when i wore new clothes that fitted, rather than the old baggy jogging bottoms and t-shirt uniform that they were used to seeing me in!

    With me, it's usually around 21lbs loss that people will start to comment...but I can tell already, clothes feel more comfortable.
