My husband and I are doing it together too! I think it makes it so much easier, don't you?
The reason I was so concerned about the 16 pounds is that I was treated for graves disease 2 years ago and it has taken me this long to really feel healthy again! Losing weight isn't worth feeling better to me. And I don't know why but people really seem to be giving me grief about trying this!
Anyway, that may have something to do with me losing so quickly. My metabolism is really messed up from the treatment (radiated iodine, killed part of my thyroid which controls metabolism). I really didn't mean to show off.. I hope it didn't come off that way. I was just concerned.
Anyway, I think that this is such a great forum to get support and feedback! I'm so glad I posted! And seven pounds in four days is amazing!!! I'd love to compare sometime. It is the best way to get new ideas on how to tackle this weight thing!
Oh, and Sue.. I love the virgin fat thing too! It's so right on!
