I have been watching my weight since the christmas holidays and pleased that i have lost a few kilos. None of my friends had commented which was a little disappointing but there you go! Last weekend I went on a bit of a shopping spree which i have not done in a while and brought some of those skinny jeans which is my first pair ever! I wore them twice this week and both times friends have said wow and asked if I have lost a lot of weight not just some but a lot! I was so pleased that finally it is noticeable. So it just goes to show that if we wear the same clothes which are now on the large side for our figures you look larger and by buying a few new items in the correct size can make a whole lot of difference.

  • Maybe your friends did not comment on your weight because it is inappropriate to comment on anyone’s weight. Friends love friends regardless of size and shape. Congrats to you on achieving your goals.

  • Congratulations on your weight loss. Its always nice to reward yourself with some new clothes to boost your confidence. Wearing bigger clothes can hide your figure so that’s maybe why your friends didn’t notice.

  • Well done on your weight loss! I’ve never been game to go buy clothes in the smaller size in case I wear them for 2 months and put weight back on!

  • What a fantastic effort, congratulations! A new wardrobe really does make all the difference.
    Not only helps other people notice, but new stylish clothes gives us the boost we need even without the weight loss!

  • Good on you!! I find when my friends lose weight or even gain weight i don’t really notice unless i don’t see them for a while. I suppose because i see them alot its not such a difference

  • So happy for you, I have lost 13kg in the last few months and nobody has noticed either – maybe I also need some new clothes.

  • I’m so pleased for you and it sounds like you’re brimming with confidence and so you should be! It is true, bigger close can mask weight loss.

  • This is SO true! Congratulations on your weight loss and you’re absolutely right about the clothes we wear – when you dress for your shape and size, it can take many pounds off you (and make you feel like a million bucks too!). Well done.
