    Hi everyone,

    I was just wondering how long it was before people started to notice your weight loss? i've lost a stone and have noticed my own loss through my clothes fitting much better (much less tight!) and my mum has also commented that my face looks much slimmer, but i'm not sure if she's just saying that to encourage me lol. i saw some friends at weekend that i hadn't seen before starting the diet (they dont know im on LT) and was hoping they would comment on me looking slimmer, but nothing was said!! i'm just really looking forward to people starting to notice because i think the compliments would really spur me on :)

    Hi Natters
    People are def noticing my weight loss now especially from my face and I've also just had my hair changed from dark brown to caramel and blond highlights and I've been told by my friends that it takes years off me haha - I'm all for that.
    My husband worrying that I will be looking for a toy boy haha - chance would be a fine thing :D:D

    Girlfriends 'ay? Sometimes I think they pretend not to notice in case you steal the limelight. Don't let that deter you chick. I am a mum..TRUST us, we know. If your face is looking slimmer and the clothes are getting loose..its all good, keep some of that smug satifaction to yourself. When you reach goal they won't be able to shut up, that's for sure.

    The EXACT same thing happened to me!! I had a family party and have lost 1 1/2st since they all last saw me, and not ONE person commented!! I was so disappointed (as I sat there with my flapjack & black tea as everyone else tucked into the buffet!:p) I spent ages putting together my outfit in the hope it'd make me look 'slimmer', but nothing..nada...zilch!!
    Ah well...never mind. My next 'outing' is on the 20th June and I hope to have another stone off by then...if no-one notices then...I will not be a happy bunny!!!
    I've really noticed it on my clothes. No more muffin tops, and ALL my trousers are now being held up with belts!! (can't believe that!!;):D)
    I must sort out my wardrobe at the weekend and see what 'slim' (ie still don't fit) clothes I plan to keep, and which are hopelessly outdated. And bin the too-big stuff so I've no excuse to 'grow' back into them!:p

    I know how you feel . I think my friends have seen me yo-yo up and down so much over the last few years they are afraid to pass comment at this stage. Hubby says my hips and belly tyre have really reduced so thats good .:D:D:D

    Most people started to notice my weight loss after about 2 stones. My boss didn't say anything to me until I'd lost 5 stones! I couldn't believe it! They said to me yesterday that if I lose anymore when I turn sideways I will disappear! They can't believe I want to lose 1stone and half yet. The compliments will come and you will love it. We're all different but don't fret, perhaps some people haven't said anything cos they're just jealous, probably that!

    And me, a friend of mine knew I was on this diet as my husband had told her how much weight I'd lost, however when I met her in the street the other day she said nowt!!! Just chatted about usual stuff, but she was looking me up and down all the time, so I'm assuming she did notice but just didn't want to say anything. :confused:

    thanks for replying guys - i was starting to question myself thinking maybe i'd just lost a stone of water! :p maybe after another stone people will start to notice. i had wondered about the jealousy thing too - thats the reason i haven't told them i'm on LT, cos they would try all they could to lead me to temptation so that i would be 'the fat one' forever and wouldn't be seen as a threat when it came to nights out etc!

    people notice when I had lost 2 stone, but only to say 'have you lost a few pounds' people noticed more when I had lost 3 stone. But people really only noticed when I had lost lots when I had lost 4 stone, then people who hadn't seemingly noticed b4 were suddenly saying 'woah, you've lost some weight haven't you? don't go losing any more'

    People noticed my weightloss at around losing 1 stone I think. This was because of my face. But people are bound to notice a difference with a 1stone loss. Not everyone of course because we all lose weight differently in different places.

    haha i havent even had my first weigh in yet (that's tomorrow - fingers crossed for me!) and i already feel different. i think i'm a bit less bloated and therefore feel like i should look totally different. of course no one has noticed - except for good ol' mum. they say it's a stone a dress size dont they? so maybe 2 dress sizes, which would agree with everyone else's 2 stone marker!!!

    Hi I certainly notice it in my clothes and people have already said they have noticed it too, and it's only week 2. But I believe that bloated look is gone from my face and that's what they have seen, whereas i already feel it in my clothes, getting looser every day. Yeah!!!!

    I have lost 50lb and I am having quite a few comments about looking better and 'have you lost weight'? what I am most excited about is that my mum has been supporting me on this diet and paying for half of it and she lives in France, she hasn't seen me since before Xmas and I won't see her until August, I purposely havn't sent her any photo's of me so that when I see her in August hopefully it will be a nice surprise and she will have noticed the difference....so I can't wait but I need to get to my challange and beyond.

    This is my motivation and goal, no new clothes yet either I want to lose a lot more first before investing in a new wardrobe!

    hiya and well done for ur loss so far, u've done great. I had a couple of comments at around a stone to a stone and a half (people asking me if ive lost weight) but over the last week, ive had 3 people tell me that im gettin skinny (im not yet but i think compared to the size i was, the loss is really noticable now). Its great wen u start gettin comments,makes it even more worth while!
    Its nice that ur mum is supporting u as mine is the only person who hasn't told me that i look nice or anything....infact, wen id lost a stone and a half i went round and told her how much id lost....she looked me up and down and said "oh have u? u must have been carrying a lot of water then!!!"
    Even someone who i dont get on with stopped me in asda and told me how good im looking :D god that felt GOOD!!!
    People will start to notice and comment soon on ur weight loss, just keep at it, u really will love the results.....and the wonderful comments that u WILL get! x
