When did people start noticing your weight loss?

I started out really big at 274lbs, so I know it'll be awhile before people notice... I've lost 17lbs so far which sounds decent, but hard to see. Just curious when people started to notice for others?

    People commented after 20 kg or about 20% of my total weight.

    When I was about 30 pounds down. I could no longer hide in my bigger clothes and summer arrived.

    My face really shrank and people would ask if I got a haircut or was growing my hair out because I looked different.

    Congrats on losing 17 pounds!

    It is hard for me to know exactly when people started noticing my difference. This time around I've been extremely vocal with everyone that I am working on losing weight, so I think I had a few people telling me they see a difference before they *actually* saw a difference.

    The hardest part for myself is really MYSELF. I personally do not see a single change when I look at myself in the mirror and I am currently down 56.4 pounds. I KNOW there is a difference though (If I do a before/after picture I can see a HUGE difference)

    Keep up your good work and don't worry about others think. Even if they (or you) don't see a difference, it doesn't mean there isn't one!!!
