How much weight did you lose before people noticed?



Recommended Posts

About 30 pounds when closer friends started to notice, about 40 when people I work with started to comment (nicely). I’m less than 10 pounds from goal now and everyone notices☺️ Had a few people introduce themselves to me that I hadn’t seen in years as they didn’t recognise me 😂

And now I have lost myself into Onderland, 199.4. Friday. late. And to me I LOOK stranger and stranger. This is the weight Dr Needleman especially and Valerie the Nurse-Practioner expected me to reduce to. Since they weirdly did not schedule me a clinic visit until August 14th , who KNOWS what size I may be then. Even I have nary a clue.👈😣👉

At 22 pounds, a lot of people started asking me if I had gotten my hair cut. ***I HAD NOT!*** LOL. They notice something different but haven't figured out it's my weight. Still wearing the same clothes. I could probably go down a size but my incisions are still healing and I prefer a loose fit for now. I'm still only 3 weeks post-op.

HW: 192; SW: 180; CW: 167.

I've only lost a hair shy of 24lbs and my mother swears my face has slimmed down significantly and well as my sides a tiny bit. Of course...I don't see any difference.

At 30lbs it was very noticeable in my face. I think I lost 30lbs only in my face in that first month. lol. After 60lbs, that's when I started getting a lot of comments.

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
