Common Signs You're Losing Weight

Losing weight can lead to an all-around improvement in your psychological well-being.

When we lose weight, the first place it will often come off is our face. If your cheek bones are more prominent, or people are making comment, it’s likely you are a bit lighter.

No one knows your body like you do. When you lose weight, you'll notice a slimmer torso, smaller hips or more slender arms in the mirror. You may even notice a reduction in volume in your cheeks. 

Significant weight loss and muscle gains will take approximately eight weeks to see, however, even though you're not seeing muscle definition, the benefits going on in your body and mind are considerable. Your clothes will fit better, your posture will be better and you'll walk taller.

Weight loss is a process that is slow and exhausting. While you love shedding some kilos, the journey makes you all the more weary and fatigued. 

Mostly, losing weight is an internal process. You will first lose hard fat that surrounds your organs like liver, kidneys and then you will start to lose soft fat like waistline and thigh fat. The fat loss from around the organs makes you leaner and stronger.

When your body uses fat for fuel, the byproducts of fat metabolism are often excreted through urine. While peeing more frequently is unlikely to lead to weight loss, increasing your intake of water may support your weight loss goals.

Loss of appetite is a common side effect of clinical depression, and one that can promote unexplained weight loss if you’re unaware that your mood swings are something a bit more serious.
