As to not being able to see changes when you lose weight that is not surprising because you're looking at yourself daily you don't notice the small changes as they're happening. This is where pictures help immensely.
We're in such a I-want-it-now society that we want to see quick, fast results, and if we don't we get frustrated. I know I've been sidetracked in the past when I didn't see a loss fast enough, and I promptly went out and binged (there, take that!)
I've almost talked myself now into measuring my fat loss solely by how loose my jeans are fitting, and do I need to notch my belt one more hole back? To me, those are true signs that I'm getting closer to my goal. But I have to be patient and think long-term, not short-term.
