Amelia: Ive been doing like too good to be true to be honest lol. I began on Monday and Ive been weighing myself everyday ( I know, shame on me, but it really keeps me motivated) and I started at 228.8 and as of this morning im down to 223.4!
Shero: Started Jan 2nd and down 6 lbs and counting.
I know I didn't get everyone's loss-got tired of cutting and pasting...lol
PS-according to the lose it book-according to studies done-people that keep track of their food intake and calories lose twice as much. Just Food For Thought
Thanks for that wrap up, Shero. Kudos to all...keep up the good work! And thanks for the reminder about jotting everything down. It makes you a lot more accountable when you see how even gum adds up.
Today, I hit my benchmark. I started my journey back in July only to get deathly ill in August and had to go on a serious hiatus until my doctor reapproved me to diet (which was like two weeks ago,) so...I guess the going is sluggish for me. But, I hit my second mini goal today I have lost a total of 28 pounds since my start of WS...10 pounds of that is since January 1st.
And the news gets better....I have found not one, not two, but THREE WS buddies! My husband said last night he has seen what it has done for me, and noticed that even when not dieting, I still maintained. He wants to join! He's going to sample my stuff this weekend and we are going to order based off what he liked by Sunday, before prices go up. And a husband/wife couple came over last night. The wife hadn't seen me since prior to me starting WS. Told her the story...and now here and her husband are joining! I am sitting on cloud nine this morning! What a great year!
