Default How long 'til you got noticed?

So, as of this morning I've lost nine pounds (in two weeks!). I can tell because my pants no longer leave deep welts at my waist, but I'm not at a point where others can tell yet. That's okay, because I'm doing this for health reasons, not vanity reasons, but I'm just curious: How many pounds did it take for y'all before people started commenting on your weight loss?

Well, for me it was 20 lbs (9 weeks), but they knew I have been trying so they might be looking to see the change more than somebody who doesn't know.

I think it is harder for people who see you everyday to notice as much as someone you haven't seen in awhile. For me it was 40lbs when I ran into someone I hadn't seen in six months and she said "Wow! You have lost so much weight! How are you doing it?".

It depends, some people don't want to say anything. I'd estimate about 70 lbs before someone ever said anything to me.

30lbs. A girl said to me "oh my God, you've lost so much weight! How much weight have you lost?" and I said "Oh, 30lbs" and she said "Wow, I wouldn't've thought you had 30lbs to lose!" I don't know if that last bit was a compliment or a dig.

Still, I've gained it all back now *stupid*

It was probably a good 8 months or so... 80lbs about before anyone said anything.

At 30 pounds, a coworker noticed and made a really nice comment.

At 40 pounds, another coworker noticed and made a really nice comment.

At 50 pounds, my husband finally noticed And so did my dad and stepmom and some other people.

It was right around 45-50 lbs for anyone to say anything to me.

I work with a bunch of women who have no problem at all drawing attention to my weight and discussing my weight and commenting on how my clothes are fitting etc. etc. LOL, sometimes it's annoying, but I know they mean well and they cheer me on, so it's nice.

Anyway, they started to notice when I'd lost about twenty pounds, I guess, but I'd already lost 30 before I started this job.

For me it was around the 20 pound mark and for some reason - I lost a lot in my face or something because for about a week people where looking at me and saying things......kind of like all of a sudden it struck them that I was losing weight. It did not bother me until someone made a comment in a room full of people - some that I was meeting for the first time... {CRINGE}

I've never had an unsolicited comment. One of my goals is to finally hear my Dad say, "Look at you! You've lost so much weight!"
