aww Im so sorry you feel this way Immacoconut. I also lost 20 lbs over christmas and I expected EVERYONE to notice the difference but i swear it seemed like i looked bigger in certain pictures. I was so depressed for a while . I spoke to another friend who had lost significant weight and she explained that everyone’s body has a different tipping point. I can say that after a few months of working on toning the loose skin i ended up with i now feel i look better. dont be demoralized! Its really frustrating but the next stage will show i promise!

have you taken measurements? You could be losing in areas unrelated to your dress size.

Actual weight is a tricky thing versus inches/sizes lost. Also, for some it takes significant weight loss to see any real changes and I have no idea why.

During my weight loss it wasn’t until about the 60 pound mark that obvious changes were happening and other people really noticed. It could be that you are so used to seeing yourself that you the minor changes just aren’t popping out at you. Keep up the good work and your efforts will pay off!

I did a lot of weights .. not heavy just a lot of reps. I also tried the Jillian Michaels 30 min 30 day shred.
