I think, too, that a lot of people who are losing weight know they are doing better because clothes are fitting looser. But we often still see "the fat person" in the mirror and can't "see" the results ourselves. Something like Body Dysmorphic Disorder. But to others we are usually looking much better. Also, is it possible that your body is changing and the "fat" around the middle might not be fat but excess stretched skin that is starting to hang a little? i don't know...just putting some thoughts out there.
Kathy is right. You can't spot reduce. But if you keep at it knowing that you will see the results you want in time and don't give up, then you will be rewarded. Having your clothes fit looser is perfect proof that you are on the right path. Keep at it!

The only goal I have right now is to get my ass in gear and get the scale moving the other way!
