Still waiting. emoticon I'm down 25 pounds but maybe it's because people are just too scared to offend me. I have so much further to go.

I saw an old friend at the store a couple of days ago. He said i have lost weight. My nephew said that when he saw me for the first time in a long time.

One of my former employees saw me yesterday after us not having seen each other in a while (he's often at a satellite location) and noticed my weight loss! I don't feel much different yet--for me, it starts to show around the 45-lb mark and I'm only just over 30 right now. I know people will start noticing in the fall, and I'm looking forward to that!

I'm still waiting. It's a little discouraging that a person can lose 20 pounds and not have anyone say anything, but everyone I'm around sees me every day. I'm excited for my daughter to come home from her 4 week trip to her dad's house next week. Hopefully she will have something nice to say about it!

A few days ago I was standing beside the truck while my hubby was pumping gas and he looked me up and down for a few minutes and said "How much have you lost?" I smiled and said "About 10 lbs now..why?" He said he had noticed it the night before in bed when he put his arm around me. I was on cloud nine the rest of the night because coming from someone who sees me every single day this was big news to me. :)

Today I put on a tight fitting cami that I have worn a dozen times before. The difference was that my 9 year old daughter looked at me and said "Mom, you look skinnier!" Then she put her hand on a flatter part of my upper stomach that had previously been rounder. Her eyes said it all. This happened right in the middle of my recovery from a very bad back injury that I just had that has left me unable to exercise. I just focused on my eating and I am still doing well! It is nice to be noticed!

Make a goal. Strive to get there and be confident that you are worth it.

I'm trying to be a sneaky loser. I can't wait until someone notices that I've lost weight. I live in a town of only 900 people. We have one restaurant that I used to eat at 3-4 times a week. My one big goal is to make it through the summer without eating food that I didn't prepare for myself, so I can't wait to walk in on Labor Day and see what kind of comments I get. I've lost 9 pounds and to be honest, I can't even tell the difference yet. We'll see how I feel come Sept. 1st.

Crazy, but at our daughter's graduation her best friend's grandfather (whom I rarely even see and who's a little...eccentric) was the first person to compliment me on losing weight. I'd only lost 20# of my 100# goal!)

Yes, a few co-workers noticed my weight loss today. I accidentally ordered a company polo shirt one size to small and was finally able to fit into it this morning. Got the shirt less than a month ago.

I got away from SP for a little while, and have only recently started tracking again. It's taken a few months, and I've only lost 14 pounds, but it's getting noticed! Several people have commented that they can see a difference in my complexion, and they can tell I've lost weight. I don't much see it yet, but what an encouragement when people notice! It really gives you motivation to keep going.

Not yet. But I' weigh (it's different from before - I have very little muscle so I am just...fluffy - I think this time it will take longer for anyone to notice. I'm back to a 16w in pants, but I don't have any so I'm either squeezed into a 14w or swimming in a 18w.

A sweet friend noticed my weight loss and also noticed I was still wearing 2-3 sizes too big. I have boxes of yoyo clothing, but nothing fun. I'd rather wear my fat clothes until they almost drop off of me to avoid buying clothes but I also didn't realize how much weight I had lost. She brought over a whole bunch of "in between" temp pants last year. Was a blessing because not long after that, I was diagnosed with br. cancer and stopped dieting (without gaining!) due to all the stress these past 6 months. I've been doing better & looking for cute clothes to make me feel better about my "new" body. I still get comments from friends even when I'm not losing weight. Maybe it's the clothes? Maybe it's the smaller foobs? Who knows, but I'm back on track with my diet and waiting for the next wave of positive comments. :)

I had a friend notice my weight loss this weekend. I'm down almost 13 lbs. and that acknowledgement felt great. Love that positive reinforcement! I just decided to join my fourth 28 day challenge for the year.

Hi All. I've lost about 16 pounds and for the first time last week, 2 people at work noticed. It felt really good although I have to admit I feel shy and uncomfortable to discuss the "what are you doing?" question at work. Also a little pet peeve--please don't call me skinny-we all know I've got a way to go.... emoticon

I've only lost 7 lbs so did not expect anyone to notice the weight loss but........ a conversation with my colleagues(I work in a school) teasing me went like this:

Co-worker #1: Something is different about you but I just can't pin point it! Did you colour your hair?
Me: Well, I ......
Co-worker #2: I know what you mean, it's like she's gained this confidence - walks taller, voices her opinion more and is definitely dressing to impress! Did you get a new wardrobe?
Me: Well, actually I've been....
Co-worker #1: I think she's in love lol
Co-worker #2: Really???
Me: Of course not a new love..... I already have the best guy! But I've been....
Brrrrrrrrrriiiiiiing...
Co-worker #1 & #2:Darn, bell already?!?!? See you at recess!!
Co-worker $3: (On our way out the staff room door): They're right Denise, whatever you are doing, it's look great on you!!

So, read it whatever way you want but I take this as THEY NOTICED!!!!!

I am laughing, because the relative who told me, "You really have to go on a diet" last week - told me today that next time I go to the store, I need to try my shirt a size smaller, because it doesn't look flattering the way I wear it.

LOL! "That is because I am losing weight" is what I did not say. I laugh, because this relative has done things in the past like bake me 2 dozen cookies and buy 2 gallons of ice cream to go with them and leave a box of open chocolates on my bed when I lost weight in the past.

She doesn't know what she wants from me is what I am concluding from the back and forth, but all the directions are "negative focus" directions. This time, I don't feel negatively affected by it at all. I love her and she loves me, but she has an "unkind eye" and I am not going to listen to that perspective. She needs to see me through the love of God and let Him heal me.

I wish I could be COMPLETELY without soda. I've lapsed a few times in the past couple weeks, but I'm back on the wagon again. Anywho, my Sunday School Teacher and a lot of people in my SS class noticed. I just got use to wearing skinnier jeans (20's) and now I have to buy smaller pants. It's funny... you get overweight and have to spend more money to buy BIGGER clothes. THEN you LOSE said weight and, if you don't have any skinnier clothes from BEFORE, you've got to spend more money. Uggggghhhhh! Anyways, I'm taking a break for a couple days. I'm spent.

Thank you TMNORD, I can see you understand.

Most of the people around me who are heavy have gotten derailed and gained 50 pounds by things like that. It is as if people are working so hard to keep their hope and not give up and people who do not understand that just plain are not helpful.

Almost everybody that I have met who is heavy comes from hard backgrounds - either abuse or loss or bullying and overcoming the emotion of those things is already challenging enough without having verbal or emotional abuse continue into our adulthood.

Being older has helped, because I understand my triggers more than I used to. Honestly, 5 years ago, it may have caused me to give up and gain the weight back plus 20.

I know that my resolve is different this time, too. I am feeling less ashamed - maybe even just having a supportive on-line community has helped more this time than every other thing I have tried. Maybe, because, I see person after person succeeding with simple principles and it is like I finally believe that I can succeed. I am not there yet, but it is new to believe it.

I am not sure it will be this easy all the way down, but I have decided to be nice to myself and to be careful around the people who are insensitive.

FRESH - So glad you aren't letting that horrible comment derail you. To be honest, it probably would have derailed me. I don't know. Maybe not. My resolve is pretty strong right now. But I had an in-law tell a thin version of me (90 pounds ago) that I was a "big girl." He went on to say, "Boy, you are going to breed some serious football players." I was so devastated by his comment that I gained 90 pounds in a matter of 6.5 years. Here I was at my skinniest that I'd been in years, and he's tell me I'm big. His comments still haunt me, but I'm trying my hardest to keep them at bay while I'm on this quest to lose weight. I'm glad you aren't letting your relative's comment haunt you.

I was just talking about this topic on a blog and, honestly, at least until I am much thinner, I prefer to not hear comments, because they tend to derail me.

However, I heard the opposite of a compliment. My relative (who didn't notice the 22 pounds that I lost and the fact that I am eating so much better and going to the gym every day and have lost 6 inches off my waist and hips....) said, "You really need to go on a diet."

It didn't bother me this time, but in the past it might have thrown me off of a diet, if I was on one. I am doing a lifestyle and don't want other people's comments to push me into dieting or stopping.

I think once I drop enough weight it might not matter, but I know someone who had lost 80 pounds and had a doctor say the same, "You have to go on a diet, because you are really obese" comment and it derailed her and she did stop and probably gained it back, plus 20.

I know the stopping is from a change of focus. It is like someone strapped concrete shoes on us. Once discouragement about results sets in it gets harder and it starts feeling like it isn't working or like it never will work and the thought like "I failed every time I tried this" kicks in.

At that point wanting to sleep in or eat for comfort are so easy to turn to.

That is not happening this time, but it took all these years to get strong enough emotionally that nobody else is toppling me.

Took a while but people started to notice a while ago. Always feels good to hear the comments and then know that the hard work is paying off.

my son and my BFF said something, but they both know I'm trying. No one else yet.

Co-worker noticed today that I'm looking slimmer. I'm not sure it really shows, yet, but I am feeling a little better and dressed up nicely. Head is held high. That will make anyone look better. Proud of myself@

I can do it!

First my husband - he can't help it, I kind of wake him up when I get ready for my morning swim everyday so he has to check if my hard work is paying off. emoticon Then my parents, who were concerned about my blood sugar levels and other health implications when I was heavier (they're doctors. ) Then recently, my co-workers. They hadn't seen me in two weeks and remarked about it when I get back to work today. emoticon

My ex-husband noticed that I lost a little weight. That was before I started Sparkpeople and really started to lose weight. That felt really good because when we were together, he would never pay me any compliments!

6.3" and have gone from 299.9 lbs to 264 and not a mention. I don't see it my staff haven't noticed and meh the friends not even a second glance. I don't know if its my height or what but I don't show my weight loss easy, which I find at times to be a little discouraging.

Folks at work are really starting to notice. They all want to know the secret-there is no secret-eat right, sweat a bit more, drink water, relax, enjoy-make it happen!

A couple of people on my job said it. A lady at my church said that I lost weight and I look nice. My daughter told me I look smaller.

My husband says he can see it, and one of my co-workers said my pants are starting to look baggy, but I don't see it yet. I think they're just being nice!

Saw an old friend I hadn't see in a while last week....Her comment was "Oh my girl! Your wasting away to nothing"

My thought was NOT exactly I still have a long way to go...BUT I must admit it felt really good to hear someone say that :)

Small Changes.....BIG rewards!!!!

Keep Sparking!
