    I have lost 10lbs since 27th july, my grandmother and mum are always now saying " ohh you can tell your loosing weight" or "your legs look so skinny now" but really, I haven't noticed a difference AT ALL, I think they are trying to keep me motivated rather than saying the truth that I don't look any different from when I started.

    I wake up every morning and look down praying a miracle has happened in the night and I see a different body, well some change at least but I look exactly the same.

    I was wondering if anyone else had these feelings? How long did it take you to notice a difference, or how much weight did it take you to loose before you noticed?

    I certainly feel the same. I only feel slightly different in my clothes, they are more roomy, but I don't think I look any different. I have lost 25lbs since 4th July. I'm wondering at what point I will start to notice the way I look too. Stick with it though Jade, that's what I'll be doing

    I've lost over 4stone and half the time I cant see it. But when I saw video from xmas I was shocked at how big I was. It's so hard to see in yourself coz you see yourself everyday, but looking back over piccys or videos you'll soon see a big difference.

    Congrats both of you on your losses.

    4 stone!! congratulations! that is true i suppose, also I guess as obviously i am not happy with my appearance, which is why i am trying to loose weight, that maybe i will never be happy with my body, hopefully that wont happen but i think your idea of photos and videos is fab, might start having to go out so my friends can take some photos of me out and compare hehe

    Ive lost 2 stone and dont think I look any different, until I look at pictures I took to compare by and you can really see it.

    I think because you see yourself everyday it doesnt notice to you as much as it does to other people.

    Defiantly seems to be what other people are saying, me being naive just assumed I would loose half a stone and notice that but no, nothing haha, I can't wait till I no longer have to de-tagg on Facebook (actually i deleted my Facebook because i hated the photos of myself people tagged me in so much haha) but hopefully one day i wont look at photos and think CRINGEE!!

    Thanks Jade & Dextersmummy. Well done too! That's a great idea about looking back over photo's. I might do that in a few months time
