Default Another Newbie Plowing thru Phase 1

Hi,

I just wanted to jump in and say hello. I started phase 1 on March 8th. As of today I'm down 4.5lbs. Everything is going great. I've had moments where I would really love a piece of fruit, but once fed and satisfied it's not an issue.

I'm 40, a wife, mother and full time student. Life is busy but being prepared has proven to be the key to my sucess so far.

I amazed myself several days ago at just how fast (less than 15min) I could prepare a great meal. Tilapia,brocolli and salad. The tilapia went straight into the microwave frozen and the brocolli was cooked in a steam bag. It would have taken more time to go get a hamburger. It was so fast!! I guess what I'm saying is we really can't make excuses for being busy. I've proven a great meal can be made in less than 15 min. It certainly encourages me that I can do this and that I'm worth it.

By the way my starting weight was 216 and today I'm 211.5

Hi Health Science Girl,
Sounds like you're doing great! I'm just a few days behind you--I started on March 12. Our beginning weights are really similar, so I hope I do as well as you! Congrats on your super progress!
