13.5.2012: three weeks
Status: 5/100 pounds lost
Okay, so that’s not so much, in fact it’s not even my target weight loss of two pounds a week, which many of you may consider too slow to begin with. But this time I want to do things patiently and I’m not disappointed. I picked up a 2kg bag of sugar this morning and thought to myself, “Woa, that is substantial!”
In the fist week I lost 4 pounds, which I knew was very superficial and mostly water weight. In week 2 I didn’t update my status (which I should have) because I evened out those four pounds and ensured they stayed off. This week I was a little frivolous with my snacks and am guilty of having at least three croissants over three days for breakfast. Hence, the 1 pound update.
BUT I am still delighted because five pounds is better than nothing and not a day did I feel I was on a diet. So far I have just been rationing what I’m eating. I give in to cravings: an ice-cream, croissant or donut but try to restrict cravings to mornings. I hope I have more good news for you next week! I do expect to shift the gears a little.
