Congratulations on your progress! I know the feeling. I tend to have body dysmorphia and although I've lost 81 pounds since my high weight, when I look in the mirror I look fat to me! As your clothes get loose you'll feel better.

Cheers to your progress! I have been taking weekly pictures, and while I do not notice a difference in myself looking in the mirror, I DO notice when I look at my pictures. This has helped keep me motivated. Maybe it could help you, too :)

I lost 11lbs in the two weeks before surgery, and then another 21lbs in the one month immediately following surgery. Nobody noticed! But of course, I noticed in terms of clothes getting looser.

At my 7 month post op mark (I'm at 10m po now), losing 3 lbs would have others telling me how worried they were for my health.

It's all relative.

Like the others have said, take pictures. And keep track of your measurements, it's a great motivator down the road ❤️

My dad couldn't tell the difference, and I had lost 60lbs. It was only after I had lost more and showed people before and after that some people noticed it. At times I stall, but my clothes fit better. I started to measure inches.

This is so me. I was actually just looking in the mirror and thought ugg 36lbs down and I still look freaking pregnant! I was taking daily pics I had a set back and stopped-I really need to start again. I know inches are gone, I just honestly do not know where from. None of my clothes are falling off and I don't have any too small clothes to try on. I went shopping for a goal outfit and some new clothes and I couldn't find a single thing worth buying.

Take measurements once a month. I record them in the bariastic app... since today is Oct 1 I did my measurements a couple days shy of 4 weeks post op (so I can just do it the 1st of every month). I lost a total of 17 inches throughout my body! Didn't realize I had lost that much.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
