    Before anyone has noticed? just wondering as i have lost 15lb and no difference yet. I know it depends on how much you have to lose but how much have you lost before anyone noticed? x

    Hi Cara,
    It tends to be at around the Club 10 mark - so it's different for everyone, if you have lots to lose then it will probably take longer before people notice, if you don't have much then it will be sooner.
    People noticed with me at the 10% loss mark and the same for my friends. It's quite remarkable!

    Don't forget though, if people don't know you are trying to lose weight then they may be reluctant to comment - people are often worried about saying the wrong thing!

    Looking at your stats, that's in another 4.5%! The main thing is that you have lost 15lb, you know, you feel good and that's all that matters hun!

    I first noticed in myself when Id lost around 9-10lbs. People noticed in me when Id lost around 1st. Its different with each person but on average Id say maybe 1st - 1 & a half really notices.

    i want to lose about 7 stone, ideally 5 would make me happy, so i guess 10% is when i have lost 27lb is that right? not too good on maths lol

    Im not too sure as I worked my 10% out different to my consultant! She had it all noted on SW cards so you could find out for sure. Im sure maybe in another half a stone it will notice much more :)

    As the others have said, it varies from person to person. Ive lost nearly 6 and half stone, but its only now that I have really felt thinner (in myself), Ive had loads of compliments from around 2 1/2 stone mark, but couldnt see it.
    I want to loose another 5 stone.

    Hi, I have 5 stone to lose in total. People started noticing from 1 stone (however, I was talking about it all the time). However, I could not see a difference until 1 and a half stone (which coincides with my club 10). Being able to see a difference myself helped to motivate me; it depressed me to just see the difference on the scales and I did not believe people when they said they could see a difference.

    Hi Cara, it really does help when you can see a difference yourself. Don't worry - you will get there! Tracy

    Cara, that's OVER A STONE you've lost. Say it with me. OVER A STONE!

    That's BRILLIANT hun. I had a consultant once who said that 10lbs = 1 dress size. Once you've lost a couple of dress sizes, in 5lbs time, treat yourself to something new and fitting and you'll feel a million dollars and it will spur you on!

    I dunno hun, that's just what she said as an average. I mean give it a week or so for your body to catch up with your weight loss and see! Lots of factors contribute to dress size downage though - I reckon toning exercises might help you get into that next size down without actually losing any more weight, and the first couple of weeks are what I call the 'Poo Poo/Pee Pee' weeks, where you're doing more colon flush than fat flush - so depending where you're at with SW, depends on whether you get into your dress or not.

    Does that make any sense? I hope so! :rolleyes:

    what you could try to help with motivation is keep an item of clothing that orginal fited you and try it on when down, it can help you feel better about yourself and you will notice the difference :)

    That is a very posative way of doing things, rather than trying to get into something a tad tight (like I do!!) and finding I am not there yet trying some 'old' clothes on and notcing the difference is a better way of doing things
