Week 1, my throw-away week

Wednesday, March 04, 2015

Just to start the conversation...I really do not like to write. I always feel disconnected and don't feel that interesting.

That being said, I just completed week one, sort of. I think of week one as sort of a throw-away week. Sort of like the first born child. You are still learning the ropes and you make A LOT of mistakes and when the second one rolls around you are an old expert. Well that is the summation of my first week.
I somewhat paid attention to what was going on, halfheartedly tracked, and occasionally logged on. Not exactly a full-on assault to my food woes. And yet somehow I let a whole pound slip from my sizable frame. Hmm, I think I am getting somewhere with this.

This week I changed my goals for slower more gradual weight loss. Lets face it...trying too hard too fast will just leave me where I was before...frustrated and hungry, and ultimately giving in, giving up, and quitting. And folks you know where that goes.

    Thanks for sharing your week with us. I finally decided to set small goals, easier to accomplish such as in February My goal was to lose 3 lbs. I accomplished it and felt good about myself. On to a new month and new goal.

    Thanks for sharing your journey with Week 1. I hate the media for trying to make us think losing weight should be easy somehow. No way! It is good that you are getting realistic that it is a slow process with pitfalls included. And I think it is a step forward that the medical community is realizing people have food addictions. Food addictions take a bigger toolbox to deal with than just people who eat too big of portions, or love chocolate, for example. Bravo for facing up to something huge! Staying connected with SP is a great way to get support.
