Yes, probably. If you're a size 6 at that weight you probably have a low body fat% (this a high muscle mass) and assuming you are going to continue training (I'm assuming you are an athlete!) it'll really cut down some of that fat and make your body fat even lower- which will be noticeable, especially on your frame.

At 5'4" I'm sure you will. I'm 5'1" and on me even a fluctuation of 3 or 4 pounds is very noticeable!
I believe so-yes! Sometimes though, it will only be noticeable by you.

Yes but it may not always be noticeable in ways you expect
1/31/13 9:30 A
Yes I think it would for someone at your current weight and height!
I agree with others that going from 141 to 126 lbs would be somewhat noticeable. I'm not sure if it would be drastic enough visually that everyone you know would comment but some people would probably notice the change.

It will definitely be noticable. I am 5'6" and have lost 17 lbs. I went from a size 6/8 to a size 2/4 (it really depends on the brand/store). I have also been strength training so I have gained muscle and toned a bit as well.

it would be noticeable to those that only see you once in a while. I have lost 26 lbs and those that I see on a daily basis really can't tell the difference but i sure can.
I can do it!! Spark People are the best!

yes, even though I need to lose a ton. I am short.

At your size, yes, I think a 15lb. loss would be quite noticeable - and I'm sure you would feel it as well, when running for example, as you mentioned.
I think that 11 pounds equals to about 1 inch all around....so you figure it out!!

Yes. I noticed it on myself, and so did others.

I noticed a change in my face with 15 pound loss as did others.

Absolutely depends on what size you are. No one noticed my first 15 pounds at all (or 30 for that matter - which is how long it took me to get to a 20 from a 22) -- but I started at 260.
I'm 150 now, and a size 4 (I'm 5' 7" but have a lot of muscle and high bone density - about the only good thing long term obesity got me!).
Anyway, 5-10 pounds is the difference between a 4 and a 6 for me. (Depends on the cut of the clothes, and where the weight went on.) If I get even a few pounds below 150 (147 or so), I fit into 2's. 160 is definitely a 6. 155 could be either 4 or 6.
Based on that, you'd probably be a size 2 with a 15 pound loss, starting from a 6 (assuming a 6 is comfortable now and not tight). But you'd almost certainly go down at least one size.
Currently maintaining within 5 lbs. (+ or -) of goal. I weigh daily, but also use a tape measure and the fit of my clothes to guage how well I'm doing.

Absolutly noticable at 140-15. You ought to be a size or 2 down or in need of a tailor.

When I weighed 225 pounds and lost 15 pounds, people were noticing! so with your height and weight (I'm the same height too!) you'll definitely notice a difference- and it sure does help when you take pictures of your progress!! keep it up :)
Weight loss is a learning, growing, changing process!
I did my best today, tomorrow I will do even better.

I find that extra weight on us shorter girls (I'm 5'3" myself) shows up a lot more drastically than some of my taller friends. If I put on or lose 10 lbs. at my height and a friend 6 inches taller than me does the same thing, it's more of a marked difference on me and can be negligible for her.

Happily in maintenance!

I think it is really dependent upon how much you have to lose. Like, on me? I pee 15 pounds off in a matter of days. No one notices. I have lost nearly 30 pounds, and just recently went down ONE freaking size.
