How long does it take to notice a change in your body due to weight loss

    Depends where you start from. One quote going about here that was spot on for me:

    "It takes 4 weeks minimum for you to notice. 8 weeks for your friends and family. 12 weeks for most everyone else."

    But that really depends more on the percentage of weight you have lost. It's really noticeable for most people when your face starts to show it.

    Didn’t notice much of a change until I lost 10 pounds. And the change became more noticeable after losing 15.

    I'm 5'4". With a higher body fat percentage and weight above 155, it takes longer and more weight loss. I weigh 150 now and I can notice a difference with 3 pounds.

    I have lost 20 pounds and still don't see a difference. I started at 226 and now way 206. I should have took pictures but unfortunately I didnt, not a big picture person. Losing 1 pound a week is great and keep up the great work!

    15 pounds in my case. That’s when I went down a size in jeans.
