So I started personal trainning a month ago, and it has been going really well. I actually lost 8 pounds in a month and so far haven't had any weight gain. 


I pretty much eat healthier and train twice a week for an hour, plus trying to walk on the treadmill or around town 20 minutes a day. I've had people at work tell me they an see it in my face and by body is starting to like pull in.. but i just don't see it really. I guess cause it's me,  I have to look at myself every day so I just won't notice as soon as everyone else.. What do you guys think...

Starting out: Weight 255lbs


NOW: 248lbs

Yes, I can tell! You'll see the difference more if you put the pics side by side! :D

You are very pretty!!!!!! Yes I can see a small difference. Give it time and keep it up because one day you will look in the mirror and see a huge difference.

I can see it!

Great job! Keep up the awesome work. Don't worry if you feel like you can't see the weight loss right away. Sometimes I think I lose weight from the non-obvious places first before I see a difference elsewhere.

I can see more of a difference in your belly area than your face, but it could be because of the angle of the pics.

Great job!  I was 269 lbs when I started, and it took me a good 20-25 lbs to actually SEE the difference in myself.  Be patient- you'll start seeing it soon!  =)

Same here- I started at 239 and didn't SEE it myself until I got closer to 200.  Keep up the good work - you are off to a great start :)

I think 8 pounds on a 250 pound frame is hard to see the difference - I'm speaking from experience as I just got down to 250 this week.

Give it some more time, keep taking pics, and you will see a huge difference very soon.

Your angles are totally different on the shots, so I cannot tell if there is an actual difference or if it's just the angles.
