I don't see a difference

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi everyone!  Hope you're all happy and well.

I had my weigh in 2 day ago.  I've lost 8kg in the 2 months I've been taking Orlistat.  

Doc says I should drop a dress size after 7kg.  I can't see it...at all.

When have you all started to notice a difference?

    Well done on your loss, that's fab!  Did you measure yourself prior to starting the tabs? Ie: chest, waist, hips, thighs and top of arms?

    These are the areas it might have come off?

    It really depends on how you feel about yourself/see yourself I think. I once lost 40lbs and I didn't really see a difference. I knew there was, and was wearing different sizes of clothes then, which made me more confident but I couldn't actually see it. Then my weight crept back up and I noticed the difference in photos of me when there was just a little 5lb difference and etc. This time around I can see the weight loss happening. But I did/sort of still do have an eating disorder and that really affects how I see myself etc.

      I know you're always harder on yourself.  The numbers are going down except for my dress size.  I didn't think I was wearing tight-fitting clothes before.   Maybe taking pics would help.

    My face is less puffy but ive lost quite a few inches off my waist/tummy. Less off my bum and legs but I will

    im wearing clothes which were too tight so id say im nearly a dress size smaller (lost about 11lbs in 6wks)
