Down 3.8 Pounds!

Friday, July 12, 2013

I weighed myself this morning, after two full days of tracking my food, and was shocked to see that I am already 3.8 pounds down! I know that most of it is water weight, but it doesn't matter. For me it was permanent water weight that I was carrying with me from my poor diet, and it's gone. A pound is a pound!

I've managed to come in exactly where I wanted to the past two days as far as calorie intake. I haven't eaten anything salty or fried or full of fat. I'm so proud of myself! Now if only I can hang in there long term. Baby steps, one day at a time.

    Hey congratulations! You are right, it is baby steps. Keep on keeping on. I am on the last day of my 5th week. I lost 9 lbs but got on the scale and gained 1 lb and felt terrible like quitting. But I know it is not an option....I will not quit. I am happy for you and the key is counting calories and adding exercise.
