Yeah I've lost five and I don't see a difference yet . . . I guess I'm just hoping that it's a little tiny bit off of everything and after enough fives then I'll be seeing an overall difference--hopefully that's the case!

I am with the others - don't let the numbers (even positive ones) or YOU image of yourself get to you. I once lost over 120 pounds and it was not until I lost the NEXT 20 pounds that people started to sit up and take notice - I shrunk more in those 20 pounds than in the first 120. People NOTICED. This time, people are hardly noticing and even though I have lost ALMOST 50 pounds - it doesn't feel or seem like much.

About 11 years ago, I had lost 70 lbs. I didn't notice much until I lost about 15 lbs. Most of the weight started coming off my legs first, then face and my stomach was certainly LAST!

I know how you feel... I think I have just learned to appreicate the lost because losing weight and making that scale go down it not an easy thing to do! So I commend you!!!

Remember that you are very close to your body, and see it every day. As it changes, you may not noticed much in the way of a difference, because you see it change by minuscule amounts every day.

I strongly encourage you to take periodic progress pictures. I was feeling terrible one day about myself, and how fat I felt, and like I hadn't made much change.

So I took a progress picture, and compared it to the one I took when I started.

Well, go look at my Sparkpage. I'll let YOU see the difference for yourself.

The short of it? I could see a difference with those pictures I couldn't just watching myself change every day. And that's only 20 lbs. How different will I look in 30? 40? 50?

So take one now, and put it up. you can check back in 10 or 15 pounds and see how different you look.

7 lbs isn't really all that much to expect to see a big change. When I started I weighed WAY more than you, and I didn't truly notice a change for about 30 lbs or so. Now that I weigh 160, I can sually I can notice a physical difference every 10-15 lbs.

Usually when someone is losing weight, they are the last person who is able to see the changes in themselves. But don't be discouraged! 7 lbs is great! Just keep up the work, and results will come.

Me, too. But I started at 225, so I guess that is to be expected. My pants are fitting a little bit better, and I feel a bit stronger. Perhaps you feel a bit stronger?
