9 pounds gone for me in one week!
Just for my own records, I want to note a few things here.
- I did not have some farewell meal the day before that would satisfy my cravings AND bulk me up for my starting weight. I think I am beyond playing those games now (though I did that in the past when starting diets).
- I did not skip meals, cheat or starve. But I did average around 1,500 calories per day, ate tons of veggies and virtually no sugar or dairy (other than half&half for my coffee).
- I know that I will likely not lose this amount of weight again, because the first week tends to be one of the biggest...not sure why.
- Clothes already feel much looser! What a great feeling in one week.
