Last year I noticed I could fit in a pair of shorts that I'd been holding on too.. and my jeans were falling down! It felt great and I'm trying to get back there. I was on the Almased program and it worked... and I even got used to not really eating much but most of my nutrition was coming from Almased. thinking about resuming this project...but I do like to eat real food. I have an aunt that's eating RAW now, so have been thinking about at least trying to do all veggies/beans/grains diet. HELP!

Great news for you JRWolf66! I'm trying to lose but it seems nothing is happening. I'm watching my calories but my clothes aren't feel looser. But I will persevere! Thanks for sharing your inspirational post.

Just this past week I noticed my clothes were looser and I could walk without so much pain in my knees.
I noticed I could walk a little further and decided to weigh myself from 2 weeks ago and I lost another 12 pounds.

This is good and really surprised me.

I'd lost about 80 pounds before the first person commented on my weight loss. Oddly enough - I haven't lost weight in about 8 months and people are still commenting week to week as though I'm losing more and more.

I take care of my grandchildren every week. My granddaughter likes to come sit with me. This weekend I noticed there was room for both of us if I scooted just a little. Before I would have to move over to the couch. This made me feel really great!

I can do it with your help!

It took about 50 lbs before I realized that the elastics on my clothes weren't stretched to the limit. When I hit the 100 lb mark, people started commenting and telling me my face was thinner. By the time I had lost 150, people stated telling me how young I look and not recognizing me. Now that I have lost 205- people that have known me for years don't recognize me from the back or will walk right past me in a crowd (including family members). People are now asking if I am done yet.

I now notice and do dumb stuff. I was driving down the road one day and drove off the edge when I realized how small my wrist is, I bawled like a baby when the seat belt fit on the plane, I have gone on every ride at the amusement park -- even when they were making me sick-- just because I could fit in all the seats comfortably (that hasn't happened since 7th grade). Folding clothes has become an adventure -- I find myself standing there staring at something amazed that it fits. I bought $3 tank topnat the first of the summer thinking that if it fit it would be great for exercise and yard work -- I was so excited that "that little thing" fit me I went back and bought one of each color --I think I have 10.

About two months ago I bought a pair of shorts to wear to a picnic. The shorts were too small and I was very disappointed but still went to the picnic and I had a great time. I had decided that fitting into those shorts would be a goal of mine and yesterday I was able to wear them and they were loose fitting.

When I look at pictures of when I was younger and still had it on. I think you can develop fixed mental images of yourself and in consequence often fail to see what is changing because that image is so tied to how you perceive yourself. I put on the weight from 13 onward which is just around the time I started being aware of myself physically. So knowledge that I've lost weight still come in flashes, like when I notice my stomach is flat and doesn't jiggle when I run, when I realize 6 years ago I would have never been able to fit into my grandmother's rings, that when I cross my arms a good portion of my limbs are against hard muscle and air instead of a fleshy torso and breasts. But still very often I'll still look at myself and think, "have I really lost anything at all?" I can understand how some people have ongoing issues with image.

I rarely ever actually see the weight loss, but I do notice my clothes fitting more loosely and some days, I just feel lighter. But, when I look at myself in the mirror, I can't see the difference.

I have a very long face, as a Native American person I also have a prominent nose and cheekbones, as I have gotten slimmer so has my face and these two features are very notable to a lot of people, now that the extra fat has evened out.

Also when I first went from a size 20 pants to around 16 (now at an 8/6) I found myself stopping to pull them up---the one day when I was carrying groceries home they just fell completely! It was hilarious because I was alone thank goodness.

I just realised the email I used for Sparkpeople has been dead for a year! :( Did you add me and I didn't add you back? *Send me a message in my sparkmail/wall*

I started noticing the weight loss by the way my clothes fit. Over the course of the last year or so, I have went from a size 18 to a size 4. It is still a mental challenge when I go shopping. I still see myself as a larger size. I will take larger sizes in the fitting room with me and then stand in disbelief that they are too big. I'm lucky that I have great girlfriends who remind me how smoking hot I am...LOL

I noticed when I had to buy a new pair of pants. I knew my old pants were loose but it wasn't until I put on a pair of pants two sizes smaller that I fully realized how much I had lost. The new pants were the size I had last worn in high school. It was a very emotional experience for me.

I couldn't tell until I lost 20 pounds. The first time I saw it was when I put on a shirt that had always been tight and it wasn't so tight anymore. I'm also noticing that my 2x shirts are too big. I'm now down to a xl. I have more options for clothes shopping and that makes me so happy!

Me, too!

My face is thinner. I started on this journey, again, on May 10. When taking selfies with a friend, she was asking why I was "hiding behind her" in the pic...it was because I felt my face was really big. Twenty pounds down, and I'm seeing a huge difference.

I wore my dress slacks last Wednesday, and I didn't have to wear "spanx" with them. Best of all, yesterday, I saw three neighbors, separately, and they all gave me compliments about how good I looked! Made me feel great!

It's definitely the scale.. 'cuz it was saying I was losing, but I wasn't noticing too much in the mirror.. of course later it's the loose pants, the belts that don't fit anymore, more energy, etc.

I knew I had lost weight when I had gone from a size 26 at 316 to a size 16-18 about 8-9 months later still the same size. Wanted to reach goal by my 65th birthday in June but that was not really realistic so I'll aim for next June, which is more realistic while losing another 60 pounds in the coming months.
In the meantime I can practice living with food sanity as I continue my journey toward increasing food sanity and satiety.

When my swimsuit began to be loose in the bust and underneath my belly. I had to wear a sports bra underneath it for support because I wasn't quite ready to go down to the next size swimsuit.

My goal is to lose about 100 pounds. I knew (from prior experience, sigh) that I would start to see it when I'd lost around 40 pounds. Sure enough, that's when I started to notice and also when my clothing really started to become uncomfortably loose. To be fair, I purchased many of those items before I hit my highest weight, so I lost "back into them" and then past them to get where I am today. 40 pounds is also when a few people started to notice.
I have been taking a selfie in my bathing suit every couple of weeks since I started (I was going to do it weekly but I get lazy) and when I compare week 1 to today I can finally see the difference.
My other big indicator? I can tie my shoes/buckle my sandals now. I NEVER thought I'd see the day when I wasn't able to do that, but sure enough it came last summer. That was a heartbreaking and incredibly embarrassing moment for me, but still not the incentive I needed to lose the weight. When I realized recently that I could easily reach my ankles it was a huge boost that I was almost too embarrassed to share with my family (I'd never told them about the inability before).

TL:DR--40 pounds and when I buckled my sandals

"I can't get there from anywhere but here."

I've lost almost 75lbs so far since I had weight loss surgery about 4 months ago. Some days I feel like I cannot tell a difference at all. But every time I'm given new clothes to try on (either in a store or from a friend), I think "this size is too small for me, it will never fit" and then it does, because I HAVE lost that much weight. So then I'll see it for a little while.

It sucks that from what I've been told by everyone who was fat and got thinner that you always feel like 'the fat girl". I hope that I'll start appreciating what I look like and how I feel soon.

When I was at my heaviest of 155 (I'm 5'4"), I started exercising and eating better. The scale didn't move much, but my clothes fit better. Then about 6 months after I started, I hopped on the scale and it said 125! I was at my mom's house and showed her-- we were both laughing and excited! It's weird, my body doesn't lose weight at first. I gain weight mostly around my core (not very attractive), so I think my body redistributes the fat then slowly releases it as I continue to exercise and eat well (that's my theory anyway).
I gained back 5 pounds so now I'm trying to lose the last 10 pounds (if that makes sense) so I can be down to 120. I've been exercising and eating well for the past 3 weeks. Once again, the scale isn't moving but my clothes are fitting better. I have to remind myself that the scale won't budge for awhile and to look for success in other ways.

My jeans get longer. When they don't have to use so much material to get around my hips they get longer. Then they get loose and then I'm ready to go down a size

I notice within a few days when I get back on track with good eating/drinking/exercising habits. I feel less bloated in that short time. I have been back at it for just over 2 weeks working on this 15 lbs for the upteenth time. I am down 2 1/2 lbs and I can feel it for sure and see it when I turn and look at my self in the mirror. Tummy isn't pooching out there so far. Another couple lbs and I will really be able to tell when I put my jeans on. I am going to get to goal and keep it off this time! Changing my habits and working at it one day at a time.....

My pants were getting longer. Nice. Now down 16 #'s.

I noticed changes after about 10 pounds of loss. My stomach wasn't sitting on my thighs as much! LOL Now I am down 17.1 pounds and my stomach hardly touches my thighs! To me that is success in the making! I love SparkPeople and how I have to stay accountable for what I eat and how much I exercise... What a great group of motivators! Go Team!!!

I noticed changes about a week after I started watching what I ate. My clothes fit better and there's a lighter feeling when I walk. I'm 3 weeks into my "reSpark". I didn't weigh myself when I started but I have a rough idea. I don't plan to weigh myself until I noticed a considerable change. It's not so much the pounds anyway that matter to me it's the way I feel and how I look in clothing that matters more.

I've been dieting since mid February and have lost almost 50 pounds, but my friends haven't noticed, or if they did, they haven't commented on my losing weight!!! This day made up for their oversight. I was shopping with my adult daughter and my cousin and decided to try on some clothes. (Both of these people are aware of my weight loss journey.) I took a guess on my size and my daughter and I headed to the dressing room. I slipped on a pair of straight leg jeans, looked in the mirror and started laughing. I called my daughter over to look in the mirror as I said "Look! This is a trick mirror to make you look thinner." She said it wasn't a trick miirror and just then my cousin walked in and when she saw me she started crying, saying how good I looked and how proud she is of me! Wow...that made my day and gave me the determination to stick with my diet to reach my goal! Yes, I bought the jeans... emoticon

REMINDER: Today is a new day, so don't give up just yet. Repeat as necessary.

I am a proud Air Force Mom!

I'm with you folks on the face thing too. I'm starting to look more like me (I had gotten used to being about 120lbs and what I looked like then).

I noticed small things like my clothes not being tight but when I really noticed it - and this is going to sound weird, was when I was going into a bathroom stall and the squeeze wasn't tight anymore!

Actually I didn't - but when several people who hadn't seen me in a few months mentioned I was "looking good" did I take a good look at myself in the mirror and felt really good about what and who I saw!

When I noticed that I wanted to shop more because clothes fit better. My sagging but isn't as sagging. hahah. Scale victory is not so much for me but a lot of people notice. They assumed I lost more than 20 lbs, even though at that time I just lost around 10 lbs.

5lbs down, 4 weeks in but I haven't noticed changes that I feel confident were not wishful thinking on my part. My friend says that he sees the changes in my face and can feel a difference in my shoulder blades but I'm still waiting to see the changes.

Only after a few days of cutting out the junk food did I start to feel less bloated; after one week I could comfortably button a pair of pants that I had held together at the waist with an elastic
