Week 1

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Today marks my first full week returning to SP. Feels good to be back and following the plan. However... (big however) .... I am a bit disappointed to see that not only didn't I lose any weight, but gained 1.4 lbs. I am a newly re-recovering alcoholic, and have not had a drink for a week. I thought that alone would help me drop the pounds. I was consuming at least 750 calories in alcohol per day. I have stayed within my calorie range on SP and have been making healthier food choices. I DID manage to drop 1.5% body fat and 1/2 inch on my waist. At least that shows me some progress. My plan is to blog each week to show my progress.

    In my experience my body behaved weird when I gave up alcohol, I should not bother about the number on the scale for a month or soI I focused on staying sober until I had enough sober days to not be willing to give it up on an impulse....but sadly enough the withdrawal from alcohol has not given me any weightloss for the eight years I have been sober - what it has given is that I have not gained either and that I am rid of the anxiety it gave me to know that my drinking habits were going in the wrong direction.

Hang in there, hope to have a positive report in another wek!
