    I'm not sure people who see me every day really notice since it is a gradual progression but when I meet up with people I haven't seen for a year or so they always notice and comment on it.

    Co-workers, they don't care. They're all fat asses anyways.

    I've had old aunts who I see maybe twice a year tell me why I'm getting so fat. (Uh, I actually lost 20lbs since you saw me last) But since I'm larger than the average asian male, they all think I'm fat. Sorry if I'm not 125lbs like all my other cousins.

    But my wife, she noticed about 3 weeks in. She said my arms were much bigger and harder feeling. Shoulders and traps were filling up and she can feel it when I hug her. Which then lead to her lifting up my shirt to see my abs and we all know what happens after that.

    Took me forever because I didn't know how to eat right. Yeah I gained strength and I'm sure size, but I wasn't eating right, so you couldn't see any progress. Absolutely have to have that diet locked down.

    Once I started eating properly, my immediate family noticed pretty quickly. "You've lost weight!" Maybe 2 months tops?

    A few months after that everyone at Thanksgiving/Christmas noticed.

    At work, nobody said anything until I had dropped like 50lbs and I'd bought new clothes. Then suddenly everyone in the office was like "omg how'd you do it?!"

    Edit: as for me noticing, all I saw was my pant size going down, but I didn't think I looked any different. Then I went back and looked at some "before" pictures :o

    left you for a non asian?

    edit: but i've only been seriously working out for 80 days or so now. everyone noticed within 30 days that i had dropped a lot of weight just because my diet got so much better and the fat started melting away. Now they all same I'm looking like a twig but it takes a lot longer to put on good lean muscle than it does to drop excess fat so i have a ways to go with that.

    It took others about 6 months to compliment me, which they should'nt because everyone should be doing what I do.

    Either way I'm doing this for myself not for others, so I dont really give a fuck what they think.
