Congratulations! It took me until 28 pounds before anyone else noticed, then until 48 until a second someone else noticed - family members not included. But when I was about 15 pounds down, my 11YO son pointed out that my belly was not as large as it had been. He didn't do it tactfully (visually demonstrating - with sound effects - how big it had been before), but he noticed before I did. Even now, I have a hard time believing that I really look that different - I never did see myself as big as I really was. But I know that I can wear different clothes and I feel way better, so those are the rewards that I claim and to which I cling.

Congrats on someone else noticing! That's SO exciting!
