Good for you! I too will chime in that they will notice. I am at 25 lbs today and it was just the past two weeks anyone said anything and they see me all the time. My daughter-in-law got out of the car, gasped and said oh my, you're skinny! I just laughed and laughed - it's like no one was seeing me and now they just keep going on and on - especially my husband! I didn't understand it at the time but you know what - now I feel so good because I did this! And I did it on my own!

I've learned in this journey that it's not important what others notice..it's what YOU notice. Better health, better fitting clothes etc. You are winning!

Ugh....I know the feeling. Nobody had noticed my weight loss (not even my husband) until I hit about the 40 pound mark. Believe me..your time will come when all you hear is "Oh my god look at you." Way to go!
Awesome Job.... its true that the folks that see you every day don't necessarily notice but when you run into people that you haven't seen in a few months they will tend to notice more. :) I hope that's the case when I see some old friends this weekend that I haven't seen in 2 months (11lbs ago)

No one noticed for me until I lost quite a bit of weight. I think you are doing great and those "try on" sessions get to be a WHOLE lot of fun. I surpassed what I thought was my goal dress. You will too. Wear those shorts proudly. You got it!

DGEOGHEGAN - I agree.

Well you know, and that's what really matters.
I'm down about 15-16 and it's taken about 3-4 months. I've noticed the people who see me every day haven't noticed, but those who hadn't seen me in a few months always comment.

Sparkers notice because we know what it takes. It is another way Spark changes us. Whooo hooo for all the changes we are making!

Had the same experience. Husband and co-workers didn't notice, but relatives I hadn't seen in a while noticed right away.
Enjoy your favorite shorts!

Good for you!
I get kind of disappointed sometimes in that people do not ask me if I've lost weight or tell me that I'm looking good. I figure it's mainly because it's happening so slowly compared to times I've lost weight in the past (or they may be like my boyfriend who is scared to mention anything about weight to me, good or bad).
I know I've lost weight and inches though, and I can run for over 60 min without stopping or walking. I also know the compliments will come eventually.

TDEMAIO2, they will notice. When you get closer to goal, they will notice. Believe me. They will notice. Especially people who haven't seen you in a long time. Those are the people that only remember the old you. (Your family and friends see you all the time, so it's more difficult to see the difference at this point.) I promise you will hear the following: OMG, you look great! You look fabulous! What have you done! It's gonna happen. And you are going to look soooo good, because of what you're doing now......water, exercise, eating less. And when you get the first WOW!, be sure to post it! Your family and friends will eventually notice, because, sooner or later, there will be no way to not see the NEW YOU!

Happy Sunday morning : ) I have been eating good, drinking my water and working out 6 days a week for 15 weeks (this is a first time for me) and I have lost 16lbs slowly :D and not one person at work or in my family has said a word? 16lbs is GREAT!!!!!! I a have worked my bootie off : ) SO this morning I went is the back of the closet and found my FAVORITE pair of shorts and guess what..........they fit :D BIG HUGE SMILES :D they have not fit over my bootie much less getting them zipped up and this has not happened since 2008! I see the change- I feel the change and I feel GREAT :D My Woo Hoo is getting these shorts on and I am wearing them today to a family party for my sister-in laws B-day :D PS I am walking in with my head held high and BIG SMILE on my face :D
