Week one a success...

Saturday, January 10, 2009

Starting over again here at Sparks on week one and level 1, I lost 2 pounds. I wished it might have been 3-4 pounds, but I'm pleased with 2. I am now going the right direction on the scale! Before, I was scale hopping every day. This time around, I will just step on the scale on Saturday mornings, no cheating.

Take each day at a time, each meal at a time and trying not to think about, "I have 70 pounds to go." I stopped eating after 7 pm before I started to "diet" again. This has helped enormously this time around. I've been sticking to my guns and not allowing my husband to tempt me with buffets and junk food. I love him, but he does not see himself as a Sabator!

My goal the next week is to go to my water classes 3X/week! Lose at least 2 or more pounds and take it day by day.

    I'm glad to hear that you're doing well. 2 pounds per week is perfect. You want to have sustainable and maintainable weight loss! Don't think about that final number - set smaller goals. I'm trying to lose 6 pounds per month. If I can lose more that's great, but I think 6 pounds is doable and it keeps me motivated. At 6 pounds per month you will lose 36 pounds by summer and 72 pounds by the end of the year - just think how happy you'll be by next Christmas!

    Keep up the great work!
