My GF's husband asked her if I had lost weight, he said I looked slimmer.
I felt great when she told me!

YES! My daughter noticed on Mon, then I went and visited a friend I haven't seen in about a month on Tues and he said he could DEFINITELY notice the gym and healthy eating paying off. Today a co-worker "are you losing weight" WOO HOO, definitely a motivator!

Well I noticed (of course) and my dear hubby!!! But what was really great was when I went to work last night and the lady who trained me for the position I hadn't seen since mid-Jan said "How much weight have you lost...your stomach is a lot smaller!! You're doing good!!"...ahhhh!!

My 21-year old stepdaughter noticed, my parents noticed the last time I saw them, a couple of people at work said something to me, but the best was when my husband said to me a couple of nights ago that he can really tell that I've lost some weight. He *knows* that I've been losing weight ('cause I announce my little victories to him every week or two), and he congratulates me, and he's generally supportive. This was just a bigger deal, because it's the first time since I started really working hard at this in October that he broached the subject first and gave me an unsolicited compliment on my progress. He got points for the positive kudos without any prompting on my part!

We had a family get together on Sunday as we weren't able to get together at Christmas time due to weather. Some members of the family I hadn't seen since my dad's funeral last April and others I hadn't seen since August. Several of them noticed the weight loss and commented about it. I also gave my sister-in-law a spread the spark card that I printed from the spread the spark page. I am also having to take in all my clothes as they are to the point of taking them off without unhooking the waste band. I have started with a couple pair of pants and a shirt and when I get them finished I will do a few more. That way I still have something to wear while I am working on the others.

Take care
Thiry

Yes, I have lost 40 pounds now and people are noticing and making positive comments...except my step mom who said I was looking "...wornout at Christmas, you know how when people lose weight they look kind of sickly--you looked exhausted." My comment was "I WAS exhausted from having to do all the prep for Christmas myself!" LOL...As long as I feel good, who cares? But it's nice to get positive feedback.

I got on the scale this morning and it says that I am down from two weeks ago by 9 pounds and 4 from last week. I haven't noticed any difference in clothing but someone at the nursing home where I work part-time asked me about it on Sunday if I was losing weight. How do I get the scale that others have on their messages?

When my kids' school did their honor's program, I went to the office to sign in, and the school secretary said out loud "Wow, you have lost a lot of weight!".

I was grinning from ear to ear. It's always so nice when someone you don't see often notices your weight loss. I told her that I was working on it!

No one has noticed yet.. so far I've lost 9lbs. But they have noticed that I go to the gym at least 4 times a week. They also noticed that when I eat out. I take half of my meal off my plate for another meal or toss it. Portion control baby!! Hopefully when I lose 10 more pounds they will notice. But what counts is the fact that I noticed.

my daughter told me that my thighs look thinner because my pants are looking different but not sure what is going on lost almost 8 pounds and then there it is again. my daughter keeps telling me muscle(weighs more) cause of the working out not to sweat it because more muscle means more weight loss in the long run. but was sure hard to see it change. but going to be up beat it will not stay.

This morning on my 1/2 way mark I ran into a runner, and as I was stepping aside she stopped and said something to the effect that she was a fire women( had the uniform sweats on) and she and the other personal have seen me for months walking past the station( I pass it every morning 5-6 days a week) and she said I look great. She asked me how much I lost and when I told her she said congrats and keep up the good work.
That made the walk so much easier.

Not as many as I thought would, but a volunteer from the animal shelter commented that walking with Ginger, who we adopted last April, is paying off. Maybe it's because the loss had been coming off at a slower pace and is less noticeable to those who see me on a regular basis.

The main thing is that I know how well I am doing and I feel so much better about myself; and all the encouragement from my SP friends helps to keep me moving forward.
