I weighed in today and am pleased to have lost 7 pounds in the last week! I am very happy and will hope for a 3 pound loss next week. I know that seems extreme, but it is in line with my goal of losing 15 pounds by August 31st. I also ate more veggies, less fat and felt no hunger in the process.
The strong start (inspired by Sparkpeople.com) has kept me focused so far and has caused me to eat so much better than I've eaten in many months.
I went for two walks (less than 2 miles each). Other than that, I lost it simply due to the changes in my food choices.
Even though I am still very overweight, I feel better already. I feel optimistic and energetic. It's amazing what a week of better choices can do.
Thanks for the support and encouragement, everyone!
