when is weight loss noticeable?

I suppose it depends on how much you need to lose and where you lose it from initially. I'm very big and when I've lost weight in the past, nobody has noticed until I've lost around 1.5 - 2st. The initial half a stone is mostly glycogen anyway so comes from the liver ... so it stands to reason people aren't going to notice that too much.

Rest assured they will soon :)


I'm going to be slim

People have been noticing my weight loss this week, people that see me each day at work, at almost a stone off. When i initially did weight watchers it took people longer to notice but possibly that is because the weight came off so slowly that people got used to the way i looked as i gradually lost weight x

most likely the only things you will notice are your clothes being too big for you or other people seeing it. all of us are looking too often and too closely for weight loss and you're not going to notice a change day to day.

a good idea is to take photos front and side on and then take the same pics every week or month so you can compare.

Hello, i have lost 2 and a half stone now and i hardly get any compliments off my friends which is quite annoying as that can really motivate you sometimes. I was a size 18-20 when i started and now am a size 16. Because i am loosing the weight evenly all over, i can notice in my cothes and my close family says there is a big difference but i even struggle to see it sometimes when i look in the mirror, but i really notice how different when i look back at pictures.
I think everyone's body is different though as for some people half a stone would be a massive difference, All depends on size i think.

My mother who never mentions my weight actually mentioned my weight loss today (she doesn't know I am on Exante). She asked if what I was doing..I just said swimming..If that sort of weight loss can be achieved by swimming I would need to have crossed the channel several times over!!! ;)
