    Im looking for opinions about when you finally notice a change in how you look yourself. For me I find it easy having people telling me I've lost weight but I want to know when we'll see it ourselves.. Although only loosing 9lb so far I still see fat miserable me.. Is anyone noticing change or feeling the same?

    Hey I'm not sure ur still interested in this but here's my input. I weighed 13st 6 to start and it took about a stone and a half before I felt a change in myself even tho everyone around me had been saying I look slimmer after my first weeks loss of 10lbs. I continued to notice myself until about last week at 2 stone loss. But now a week later Ive gone back to my previous thinking that I still look big and the flabby bits are going to be there forever. It's like at first because it happened so quick my brain noticed the changes but now my losses have slowed its like my brain has caught up with what's happening n now I don't feel any different than before. The way I keep motivated is by the fitting of my clothes. Because then everyday I notice them getting slightly looser. Sorry for waffling. And I hope that kind of makes sense haha.

    It's nice that someone else feels like I do I've done a stone and a half and I can only notice my face and my boobs haha, my partner said he can see it in my legs cos il be honest they're like trunks. I'm hoping to do 7lbs in 2 weeks and maybe see a change x

    Hey how are you getting on? Isn't it weird how our mind plays tricks on us, I remember when I was at my smallest while at school I thought I was fat at the time. Its only recently I've seen a photo of me and my very skinny friend back then and I'm actually smaller then her! But in my head I was way bigger. I suppose when that's the case the best way to tell is by clothing or even taking measurements of ourselves to reinforce that we are getting smaller. That's the way I'm keeping motivated!

    Hello! It's pleasant when people around say:" You lost weight! You look slimmer!..etc". But until you notice the changes yourself all those words from people are useless. My congrats with great results! you noticed changes yourself and this is the best the most pleasant thing;-) As for me i do not trust scales much. I trust my pants;-) If i need to buy new pants of a smaller size - this is it!!!!;-)) Any ways i wish you best of luck!
