I stuck to the plan to a T, no gum etc etc and was hoping for more of an 8 or 9. I do feel my clothes fitting better and the girls at work think my "tummy" has shrunk. Here's hoping! 5 lbs is ok, but for the effort I put in I was hoping for a better #.
Here's to next week.
Congratulations! 5.8 is awesome!
You have to remember that you are starting at a lower weight and won't usually have the same loss as folks starting higher. Some weeks will he high and some weeks will be low. I even had a week (well 4 days) where I showed a gain and I have been 100% since day 1. Just stick to it and it will work!
