Find a sturdy bag and load 16 lbs of weight into it -- free weights, bags of flour or rice, etc... Now carry that around the house for a few minutes. I find this helps give me a little perspective when I feel like there's no change, because sometimes it's hard to feel like you've made any progress at all. Just this morning I put all of my small free weights in a bag and weighed it, and it came to 16.9 lbs. I'm currently 20 lbs down and occasionally think I notice it, but still have my doubts. Carrying that bag around for a few minutes really makes you think!

I worry sometimes that I come off like having the big head, but I feel like a little puppy sometimes, chasing my tail, rolling over, feeling my oats, and just generally having a blast. Second childhood. Absolutely life altering. Biking, running, “flying” in yoga. None of this was on my radar twenty months ago.
I wish I could bottle this and share it.
I can’t, but I can sure try to encourage others here.

The scale and tight clothes don't lie.. but your brain will lie to you as you look into the mirror. The same brain that tells a person, "you don't look fat in that?..until the person sees there photo and realizes OMGSH... I'm FAT! It works both ways.
So.. I use tight clothes.. when my shorts zip.. I know for sure I've lost weight and there is a difference. To heck what my doubting negative mind says. And it is funny when you go down in sizes you almost think the clothes are sized wrong that your really don't fit into that 8..but you do.
