Hi y'all... my name is Lanna..I have been reading on the forum for three months now and posting journal entries on the Diet Blog but this is the first thread I have started.
I wanted to thank you all for the unfettered support and advice I have gleaned via the forum and the Diet blogs...you are all amazing. I wanted to share with you how it's been going for me too.... to finally try and contribute something. Here I go:
Starting Wt: 321.6 lbs
Last week: 273.8 lbs
This week: 273.6 lbs
Wt lost this week: 0.2 lbs
Total Wt Loss: 48 lbs
Let me start by saying after completing the 15th week and almost 4th full months of Low Carb dieting I am proud of myself. Proud that I have lost 48 lbs and frankly proud I have stuck with it. I am learning to like the change in my eating habits. Admittedly I think about a Big Mac or Brownies from time to time but I don't obsess over them.
Instead I have been obsessing over the scales...which I don't think is such a good thing. I have been weighing morning and night and the ups and downs are driving me batty. I have got to stop. I've thought about switching to just once a week but I'm not sold on that yet either.
I was hoping for better weight loss this week...I haven't cheated AT ALL. But I also haven't stayed as hydrated as usual...and Aunt Flo dropped in Saturday and is still hanging out :P. So...I am blaming the slow loss on water retention and decided I'm just not gonna beat myself up over it.
Okay....four months down and eight to go.
Wish me luck and sticking power.
