After two weeks, finally I see weight loss...4 lbs. I know it's not the 8-12 Lbs. everyone talks about losing in Phase 1, but I'm encouraged now and that makes all the difference between cashing it in or continuing. I'm happily in Phase 2 now. Drinking more water and exercising made a difference. I definitely feel better and can now control what I eat without feeling deprived. Woohoo :D

Yippee! Are you going to change your ticker to show 4 gone? Holler if you need help.

Congratulations! I wish they wouldn't emphasize the 8-12 so much. I started around the same weight as you did and also lost 4 and look how far I have come. Slow and steady wins the race!

Barb, I'm so encouraged by your success and others' results here -- that's the biggest boost for me. To be able to come here for support is making all the difference this time. :)

Is it right now, Grace or was 188 the start?
The order for this type of ticker is /start/goal/current/ and it will calculate pounds gone and to go.

Grace, I'm so happy for you! :hat: I only lost 6 on Phase I... it's not about the big numbers... just the fact that you're going "down" and that you're eating healthy is what it's all about!!

Hooray, Grace! I knew if you just hung in there you'd do it! I've been re-doing Phase 1, and this time only lost 3lb in the last 2 weeks. It's discouraging, but I'm still here. This is about the healthiest way to eat, and our bodies are loving us for it!
