So Frustrating..Do You See A Difference?

It's so frustrating to me, that after a 40lb loss, some times, I see almost NO difference. I put on a shirt I took a picture in back in last October. It was a go to shirt, I wore it often because it fit and I liked hiding in it. SO I thought, wow, I bet there's a huge difference. I put it on, took a picture and compared...I am not very happy. Honestly, I don't see much of a difference and it's depressing. Can you see anything?

I see a HUGE difference in your face and arms!  The second picture doesn't show much of the lower half of your body, but I bet you're smaller down there too!  Great job mama!  Keep at it!

Yes, it's a big difference!  Maybe you would see it more in a more fitted shirt?  But I can see a lot more waist/hour glass shape and your face and hips look much slimmer.

Thanks ladies. I'm glad others can see it, I just wish I could. I mean, obviously after 40lbs, there has to be a difference but some times I feel like it's not as much as other peoples. Like, maybe it was just a ton of water weight and not real weight. I think I'm too hard on myself. But even after 40lbs, I've only gone down a pants size. :(

My thoughts exactly! And remember the smaller you get the quicker the pants sizes will change. Like it takes 40 lbs for a pants size now, but soon it will be 10!

I see a huge difference in your face! Keep it up, it's hard to notice the differences when you see yourself everyday. You're doing great!
