I've lost 22 pounds. Yes, it's been a slow process but I'm feeling awesome! I guess I just want someon in my daily life to notice!!!! Maybe even my husband? OUCH! I know I have a lot more to lose, but I'm feeling so good.....Of course I have to confess, I'm not really on a "DIET" but a lifestyle change, so I've really not told anyone. I mean those closest to me know I've been exercising & eating healthy....OUCH! Okay, I guess I need that. Hard to admit. Is it not enough just to feel good inside and feel good about myself? OUCH! Makes me sad that I need that reinforcement from others. Maybe I'm still learning & healing........

    Most comments about weight loss didn't come until about 35 or 40 pounds for me. I did have one person comment around the 15-20 pound range, but she was the only one. I think people were not sure what to say. I did get a lot more comments like "you look nice today" and "did you do something different with your hair" People are funny sometimes. Keep the faith! emoticon

    Congratulations on your progress.
    People will start to comment in time. The main thing is keep sticking to what you are doing and do it for yourself.

    Who knows? Some men don't notice anything. Others are afraid to say anything, or they don't think you need to hear it. Also, men tend to see the whole woman (she's hot/she's not), rather than the details. Post your photos on Spark, and I guarantee you will get lots of wonderful feedback here! Congratulations on your progress.

    First of all Congrats!!! That's a lot!!! Its normal to want people to notice..nobody noticed with me till I lost 40! Inthinjk part of it for me was everyone had seen me lose before and so many did not have faith I would stick with it,
    . That has changed now, believe it!!

    I feel for you. My coworkers didn't notice when I lost 30 pounds until I bought some smaller clothes and changed my hair style.

    Your husband sees you every day.. he might see it, but not SEE it, if that makes sense. Maybe he's afraid to comment on it because if he says something like "Oh, you're looking good." you might think "Well, what did I look like BEFORE?" And besides, he loves you for who you are... YOU.

    Just throwing those thoughts out there.
