    When has your weight loss been noticed for the first time?

    I have lost 27lbs and thought by now people might be saying "have you lost weight" but they aren't and I'm a bit dissapointed I must say!

    Only people who know I'm following this plan are amazed at what I've lost and say they can see a difference but I just wondered when other people have had the nice comments and how much they had lost?

    Please let me know! Thanks x

    Too Much!! Ha Ha

    Seriously about 6 stone ... am I asking to much then for people to notice it already? Guess I will just have to keep plodding on. x

    I have about the same to lose! Well i know last time i did it people noticed at around the 2 stone mark. The more you have to lose the longer it takes to show unfortunately! But Im sure people will comment soon :) also i was amazed at the amount of people who didnt comment at all and when i mentioned it they were like 'i did notice but thought you might be embarrassed if i said something'... Erm heck no you compliment away! Lol x

    Yeah, looking at your weight you are about the same as me. What plan are you doing? I'm on SS.

    My Mum keeps calling me skinny which is getting a bit boring as I'm certainly NOT skinny yet .... just give me another 5 months! I think she feels like she's got to keep commenting because she knows how hard I'm trying having been fat since I was about 11.

    Oh well, maybe next week will be the "magical week" I will post it on here and be walking 10 feet tall. Blimey if I were 10 feet tall I'd be underweight! LOL x

    Well Im not starting til tomorrow but ill be doing SS. Previously i did Lipotrim which is pretty much the same as SS.

    Ooh yeah maybe we should just stretch ourselves.... Problem solved! Lol!

    Oh god bless mothers eh? I've always been a chubster too! How old are you if you don't mind me asking? X

    I started at BMI 47 and it took 3 stone before people who didn't know me well really started commenting. Then I had a week where people were commenting all the time.

    Im doing exante but come in here to read posts as its essentially the same!

    I will have done 3 weeks 100% on tuesday and this morning someone told me I have lost a lot of weight!! :D This person doesnt know anything about the diet and i played it down and said yeh ive been so busy working 17hour days, think it must be that!

    Oh well that's good someone has noticed. I also wonder how I'm going to explain 'how' I've lost the weight because there is so much negativity about VLCD's and people who haven't done it don't understand. I think I will just say I've been dieting without actually giving a start date or any info!!! Be really vague but enjoy the comments!

    Totally agree! Even though I am overweight I find even if i said ive been doing a healthy eating diet people would tell me not to be silly! never mind telling them I was doing a VLCD!

    Suppose we better start thinking up some good lies as they aint seen nothing yet!! :)

    Perhaps people are just not happy for "us" because they are unhappy with themselves!

    Also, was talking to a friend last night who's lost 7stone 2lb with weight watchers (taken her ages - over a year .... boring!!!) anyway, she said it took ages for people to notice and a lot of her friends didn't say anything at all, ever, they just accepted she'd lost the weight. Almost as if they didn't want to acknowledge she'd done so well.

    How sad, if my friend lost heaps I'd be telling her how lovely she looked all the time, as that's what friends do!!! xx

    This is so true! Lots of people, particularly women don't like to see other women do well! X

    I find that people are embarrassed to mention weight loss. It's only if you mention it or someone else does that others would chip in lol.

    It's best to take pics during your journey and you can see all your hard work yourself.

    Best wishes Mel

    That's what i've done, got the before pics and the 2 stone loss pics and there is a difference. Also, because it's winter we are all wrapped up in so many layers, roll on summer and then they will notice!!! Either that or they'd better go to Specsavers tehe!
