You don't have much to lose, so people should start noticing pretty soon.

Me? It took losing almost 30 pounds before I got my first unsolicited compliment. When you have a lot to lose, it doesn't show much until you've lost a significant amount. But when you only have 20 to 30 pounds to lose (not trying to make it seem like that is a piece of cake or anything), people start to notice when you've lost your first 8-10 pounds. So get ready to get those compliments!

Congratulations to you!

That's so great!! We have similar weight loss goals, so I know how it feels to lose those first 5lbs, especially when you have so little to lose!! Way to go, and here's to hoping we can keep it going! :)

You should be getting glances and "the questions" soon (Are you on a diet?... or Are you losing weight?... or I hope your not sick.)

I am a teacher and lost 43 lbs before school ended in May of 2011... a couple of people noticed... but I was still wearing the same old clothes and didn't get to show off my new self... This summer - I worked really hard to lose an additional 30 lbs.. and lost gobs of inches by exercising and walking everyday!! When I went back to school in late Aug... you should have seen all of the second glances and long looks I got.. !! Totally worth it!!!! Still losing and loving every lb. I lose.. New clothes too!!
