I'm now almost through with my second month, and I've only started seeing a change in the last week or two. The first month, I saw no change and my weight kept fluctuating, mostly upwards. But, I now see some change in my arms and shoulders (always my first body part to change towards the positive), and pants that didn't fit last week are now fitting with ease, though I don't notice any change in my stomach by looking at it.
Stick with it, it will come soon enough. Just be patient and know that you are doing things right.
I've been doing Crossfit for 4 months now. The first month I actually gained a pound but lost a few inches. The first month is hard because your body is going through a change and you're building muscle and burning fat but it will be hard to see the change. The second month I begin to notice in my clothes. The 3rd and 4th month totally noticeable. I've lost almost 20 lbs and 21 inches it's hard to see a difference in yourself but I am a lot stronger than when I first started so I know I've built a ton of muscle. Stick with it. It takes about 2 months to see noticeable results but the results are so worth it. I have a page on Facebook that shows my before and after pics if you want to check it out.... www.facebook.com/pages/Living-The-Pa le o-Life/244627732245341 just click on photos then my journey

I noticed yesterday, no joke... I think it's a mind thing- I have been doing it for a month or so now and while I felt more fit- I felt like I wasn't changing drastically. But yesterday I put on a 40lb vest and remembered what it was like to weigh that much (the weight loss has not been from CF) and then I saw it and felt it.

I'm wondering because I've been doing this for three weeks and eating really well but I feel like nothing has changed. My clothes feel the same, my body feels the same, and I look the same in the mirror. How long did it take for you to notice any changes in your appearance?
