Just wondering... How much did you have to lose before people started noticing? I know it sounds vain but went for lunch with the girls today and one of them has lost between 1 and 2 stone and every one was like wow you look so good etc which I am happy for her but I've lost a stone and no one noticed not that I can see anything either mind! Just feel a bit down I guess prob because I'm still a lot fatter than her no one noticed :s x

When I first started dieting and did Cambridge no one noticed until I had lost 3 stone!! I'm sure you will start noticing soon enough :)

This varies from person to person, few years back I lost 4stone abd nobody noticed until I'd lost 3, this time after a stone my mum and couple of people commented on how they could see I looked slimmer etc, don't be disheartened, you know you are losing and must be feeling good then all of a sudden people will notice and say WOW then you can be even more proud of yourself :)

I found for months and months no one noticed and then suddenly everyone was asking me and saying how much id lost. It happened like that over night but i had to lose a few stone before anyone noticed. At the moment im down a stone and no ones noticed. But i am still 10 lbs above my weight i was last october so maybe once ive lost that and some more i may get comments

It will soon be your turn so keep up the good work

A few people started to comment around 2 stone loss but today at work tons of people said it today. Wore exactly what I normally do but some people said I was wasting away, hardly but nice to hear. I have now lost over 3 stone so maybe that's the magic number

Ahh thanks guys I guess cause I'm so fat I'll have to lose a lot more before I get told I'm wasting away :( so many nice (fatty) food In this house that I want it's so hard! 1st down 7 to go :( :( :(

I saw a photo on Facebook somewhere around about new year when everyone was making New Years resolutions... And it said that if you make a big change in your life, it takes 4 weeks for you to notice a difference, 8 weeks for friends and family to notice and 12 weeks for the rest of the world...

With this diet at roughly a stone a month, that bears it out at 3 stone ish! :)

Last time I lost 3 stone that's when I started to get comments. It was nice that nobody commented when I put half of it back on again! This time round, again 3 stone, so that really does seem to be the magic number. I'm really liking now that people I've not seen for a few months are doing a double take! hahaha, that's such a buzz!

And what I really totally and absolutely LOVE is that people are now asking me how they can stop overeating - that's just the ultimate compliment :D

Sorry to resserect an old thread, but I was thinking about it today and took a while to find it!

I am three and a half pounds off three stone lost and in the last couple of days ive had about 5 people comment, really very little has been said before that.... so i guess that bears out the three stone theory lol...

i had to get the handyman at work to put another hole in my belt this morning, nice comments, the sun is shining, im feeling just fab! Think i might have to give those jeans in the drawer another try this evening too... :)

Hope you are all having a fab day too xx

I did cb two years ago and people didn't notice unil I had lost nearly two stone and I was doing it with my husband and people started commenting after he only lost a stone, I used to get so annoyed!! Stick with it and people will start to notice soon and the feeling is amazing!

I've hit 2st down this week and suddenly had an absolute thunderstorm of comments from about 5 different people at work all on the same day - Monday this week. I HATE comments and compliments but there were that many that I got used to it and was actually able to smile, say thanks and answer the question of how much I've lost so far.


Having a very lovely life
You do reach a point where you start to enjoy it, I hated the nice stuff but loved the snubs to start with. Now I must admit to getting a bit of a kick at the looks and the smiles and the comments. I got hit on by a junior colleague in the lift on Friday, I loved it! He was good enough to admit he was hitting on me too and we did laugh - those things never happened before, it's a great boost :)

It was when I had lost just under 3 stone people started noticing and giving comments etc.. But my close friends noticed I had lost weight from my face after 10lbs.

I'm looking forward to getting comments - it always takes me 3st to drop my first size so just 7.5lbs to go until I'm hopefully in the size 22s and getting some comments!
