Thumbs up Lost my first 10lbs!

I am going into my 4th week of calorie counting and reached another mini-goal....I am down 10lbs!!

The changes that I have noticed is:

- an overall feeling of less bloating
- a pair of shorts now fit perfect
- my husband (that had not seen me for a week) said that he noticed a change

So now I am off to buy myself a new wallet as my mini-goal "prize". No longer am I going to treat myself with food...now my treats are going to be new pretty things

Congratulations. Wow.
Keep a journal of how good it makes you feel, then when a day occurs where you are wanting to devour the world, reread the journal.

The first 10 pounds is the best motivation ever- I know exactly what it feels like, so congrats!!

Like you, I no longer 'treat' myself to food now. I buy pretty clothes or get things done to 'doll' myself up as a prize! Feels great, doesn't it?

Congrats on your loss! Also, it often takes half a day or so to really get a response on most threads. Only four and a half hours passed between your posts. We don't just sit here all day
