After a week of carefully measuring my servings to be absolutely certain I am staying within my calorie limits, I find nothing spectacular has happened. Okay, I admit it, I was SO confident that there would be a great AH AH moment, and weight would come sliding off. I think I can put that dream aside. I call times like this "humbling moments". It is so difficult to have to deal with food choices each day without the immediate gratification on the scale. But I will continue with the plan, since the alternative of continuing to damage my health is not acceptable.
What I have gained is a recognition of the enormous effort and discipline used by my SparkPeople friends for each pound lost and strength gained. Wow!
