Yeah, it is funny, but I don't think they notice the things we think they do. (Like was said above - it's comforting and not at the same time.) It's not that he doesn't see the loss, but he didn't notice it as larger before. I understand wanting that validation, but I think you'll have to accept your own visions for now. As for people other than your SO, they generally don't comment until they are SURE you've lost weight. They probably do notice a little bit, but just haven't said anything. It's kind of like asking a woman if she's pregnant - it's a land mine and you don't want to be wrong. I got a lot of "You look great today" or comments on my shirt or hair before they finally realized that it was weight loss. Even after they really notice, a lot of people don't say anything because they don't know what to say, so they compliment something else on you.
There's no ticker here because I have no idea what I weigh, nor do I have plans to get on the scale anytime soon. My goals are to take care of myself in healthy ways and let the scale fall wherever it will. "It's not about skinny anymore - it's about healthy."
