    My kids started back at school this week (well one started primary school and the others went back to nursery) and I obviously have changed shape because I had parents and teachers (at nursery) commenting about how I looked!!:D It was so nice to hear... Even the cleaner who I don't really know (my son has a bit of a thing for her..lol) said "My god, LOOK at you!"

    Even my husbands stroke nurse, who we see once a month asked me if I'd lost weight... What a confidence booster!! I'm even more determined to continue now.

    Oh and I also got into (comfortably) a pair of 14 jeans!!!:D

    Its great to get confidence boosters.

    I saw someone at work yesterday who I hadn't seen for months and she didn't notice a thing despite my loss of over 3 stone and 2/3 dress sizes. Most people I see each week through work have not said anything either but then I have not once mentioned being on a diet.

    On the other side of the coin, random people like the lady in my newsagents mentioned it and obviously my friends and family can see a big difference too.

    sometimes people can be embrassed to say anything, cause a lady in my work took my into an office to ask me lol I thought I was getting the sack the way she done it

    Dont worry as long as u feel great and you have the support of ur friends and family thats all that matters

    although it is always great for someone to go wow look at you lol :)

    Yes I think some people are worried about insulting you by saying you've lost weight. Its as if it will come across as 'blimey you were/are a bit of heffer who needs to lose some pounds'. LOL

    I guess those who know you are on a diet are on safer ground.
