When you make progress (lose weight, get leaner, etc) do people notice?

People have noticed my weight loss. I tracked down a couple pictures of me so you could see how much I've lost.




And here's my latest before and after pic.


Nobody's really noticed my fitness progress yet, but I do get comments about how much weight I've lost whenever I see someone who hasn't seen me in a while.

Other than my DH, nope. (Nobody has said anything to me anyway.)

No, but then again, since I work from home, I don't see many people that I'm close to on a regular basis (I mean, other moms at the school or my son's baseball games, but nobody that would know me well enough to be comfortable saying something like that).

My mom always notices! For some reason I get a little uncomfortable when people notice....I guess I'm afraid if I fail people will notice that too.

By the way you look really good! Congrats!!

Thanks. I get so discouraged sometimes so it helps when people can tell.

If I can tell someone has lost weight I always try to let them know I notice because I know that it helps me when people notice.

Except when I'm pregnant I have thankfully always been really slender so nobody really notices except for DH and he noticed after my pregnancies when my belly started to get hard again.

Yes, I use it as a motivator that they will also notice if I slack off

By the time I lost 20 from my first plateau last October, I started to get comments from DH, my mom, MIL, and SIL. But it was a big chunk first
