This analogy really helps bring perspective to what's happening. Thank you!
Ive lost about 20lbs..and some of my clothes are starting to get bigger..but I donít really need a new size yet.. I really think part of it is b/c I was already so much BIGGER than the size I was wearing..so now I fit comfortably in my size..all though my shirts are a lil loose but I think a lot of them where a lil big to begin with.

Smile Great Motivation

I started about 22 days ago and I love the story about the paper towels.
You look great and I will think of this story each time I go to the center.
Thanks so much for your input.

This post deserves a bump back to the top for all the newbies like me

I have lost about 15 lbs and really don't notice it much. I saw a reference to this paper towel analogy in another thread, and it really does make sense!
Current Attempt (Slow Carb Diet, restarted May 3, 2015) > Previous Attempt (Slow Carb Diet, 2013-14)

= 10 lbs lost; = 5 lbs lost:
164 lbs = No longer Overweight!
Keep slow-carbing!

Thanks for the bump to the top! I love this analogy! I have been stalling (due to my own fault) for about a month! But I am getting my game face on and going back the the basics I used as motivation in the beginning.

= 5 pounds lost

Thanks! I've lost 47 lbs and I couldn't tell either! Nobody has said a word to me . I started at 251, so it seems like somebody...ANYBODY...would notice!

It makes me feel better seeing I'm not alone in this.
