One Solid Week Down

Monday, April 23, 2012

I have went one solid week with a new life style change. I was discourage with not seeing weight loss at first but then decided to go back to the basics on this site. I started last week and today I have seen a few pounds shed away. It was fun. I am still getting cravings and think of food a lot. I am hoping that this will go away with time or I will learn how to deal better with it. I have walked every night for the last 8 nights. It is about a mile but even my breathing seems a pinch better. I am excited for once with the opportunity of getting into a new life style.

    emoticon That's awesome that you're walking every day. I started just by walking around the block. The human body is strange sometimes. Just because we have a calorie deficit each week, doesn't mean we see the same weight loss each week. I have a really good week, followed by a tiny loss the next week, usually. Just keep moving and eating healthy and the results will happen... just maybe not as fast as we want it to!

    Congrats on your successes! Speaking from experience and currently going "cold turkey" and struggling myself at the moment I can tell you that as your successes become consistent your food cravings should lessen (can't promise they will go away completely more's the pity) you will gain a certain satisfaction that supersedes the need for your "favourite but shouldn't have too much of food" but in the meantime all you can do is take one day at a time & carry on doing what you did this last week & try to keep tempation out of the way.


    If it helps remember you are not alone in your struggles :)
