To those who have lost weight, when did you notice?

Iím just curious when you guys who have lost weight started to notice when you lost weight.

Iíve lost almost 10kg and canít say Iíve noticed it at all. Not in my clothes or appearance. Maybe itís too early still, I dunno. Hence why Iím curious?

Iíve also got a hell of lot to lose so maybe thatís also why.

That is a great question Hexagon but I will say You will be one of the last to know, other people will tell you that you are but because you are living with it every day it is harder to see, however you will get there so do not give up.

Sometimes I don't even notice. One thing that makes it quite obvious is my passport photo. I was 3 stone heavier when it was taken and you can definitely see the difference in person. I've still got a couple of stone to lose but I am at a point now where I have to remember how far I've already come. I'll admit, I only notice the difference in my face. From my perspective my body doesn't seem to change even though I'm sure it does.

Been trying to lose my ĎCovid stoneí and have this morning changed my everyday trousers from the size 12 to my size 10 ones as they were too baggy 😆

well just wanted to say well done - that's a great loss so far!
I'm always told that it's roughly a stone per dress size, but not sure how accurate that is and I guess it depends how and where you carry your weight!

Iíve lost 3 stone this year and have another to go. Iím a healthy BMI now so weight loss has slowed down and Iím not putting pressure on myself to lose the rest.

I could see it in my face after about 3 months, Iíve put selfies together to see the change and itís visible. Itís most noticeable when I try on clothes; a size 14 is now too big and was tight at the start of the year.

This may sound awful right now, but Iíd recommend taking some photos of yourself in your underwear to hide away and look at in a few months. I didnít do it and regret not doing so. I took measurements instead but itís not the same as being able to see the results.

Wish I had done this, really good idea for motivation.

Op - I know how your feeling - I lost about 10kg in the past couple of months - Iím only just noticing clothes are a bit baggy.
Well done for losing what you have

When i got to the end of the school term and my clothes were baggy (started losing weight in january). Ive dropped 2 sizes 18 down to 14 but i still look and feel fat. I want to lose more and actually see it in my eyes.

It all depends on your start weight and how much you lose in perspective. I used to weigh 24 stone, so its at least 5/6 stone before people notice.
Im size 8-10 now. Even 20 pound covid gain is noticeable as was the loss of it - so I was back to normal.
I also do 15 hours swimming a week and that tones and shows faster than weight loss alone
GOOD LUCK x
