Make sure you are eating enough - sometimes eating too little can slow things down - sounds silly I know. But it happened to me the first time I lost my weight back in 2006. It also took 5 weeks before I lost any weight.
5 weeks? Geesh-- that is hard for someone like me-- instant gratification, please
It's also hard for me to wrap my head around not eating enough. I grew up on the premise of "calories in vs calories spent".
I am exercising every day so I think you must be right. I do sometimes 'skip' lunch M-W-& F when I am at the gym... Not good, I know.
I did however, prepare some deviled eggs ( with mustard) and I make protein shakes for replacement lunches. Oh well, I will work on my attitude
Staying positive throughout this journey is pivotal lest we fail altogether
Thanks so much for the support-- it means a lot!!
