    On average, how long does it take for the weight loss to take affect on how the body looks like? I can only tell in my face, and even that's ever so slightly...is it cos I've only lost a small amount?

    Actually, in comparison to this pic (Taken this summerat my heaviest) even I feel like i've lost some!

    It's just hard to stay upbeat and positive when progress is so slow.

    I can see a huge difference in your face. Well done. Its best to lose weight slowly and least you'll know your more likely to keep it off. How long it takes to see a difference, I guess it depends on how over weight you are.

    your face definitely looks slimmer. have you been measuring yourself? that's quite a good way of gauging changes in your body shape. That being said, I've lost nearly two stone and gone down a dress size and I don't feel any thinner - sometimes we don't see these things ourselves.

    I know it sometimes seems like an age before you can see a difference, but trust me the change in your face is amazing!

    You can so see the difference in your face so I am guessing that you can also see it in your body

    Good advice to take measurements also

    You guys are so supportive so I guess I just got to keep it up. It's just hard when progress feels slow.

    Porgeous, wow, check out your transformation :D

    You will notice the difference soon, your face already looks noticably thinner - keep on track you'll soon see the results.

    sometimes its just difficult to see it yourself.. i didnt think i looked that much different but I am taking pictures at each stone marker so I can look back and see. Was looking at a pic taken a few days ago against a pic from 4 weeks ago where I was 10lbs heavier.. and i was really horrified at the difference - especially when 4 weeks ago I was loving the picture I had just taken and now I hate it LOL :D

    keep up your good work anyway. even if you STS over xmas, thats a big achievement in itself! xx

    Yep, I can see a big difference too in your face. Well done :)

    I have lost just over 22lbs now (and just hit my target and I have only just started noticing it myself. I have gone down a dress size which is a big indicator but i think it takes a while for your head to catch up with your body. Take some measurements. I love doing that and i have measured a huge difference in myself and that's when i know it has to be working.

    Goodluck. You can do it!
