I am so happy and so proud of myself just after this first week that I want to cry. I have never been able to stick to something so well. Were eating a lower carb and this first week was great. It's more of a lifestyle change in my eyes though. The hubby wanted pizza last night so we ordered it. Instead of my usual extra cheese and pepperoni I chose to get it with regular cheese and veggies on thin crust. I had a salad before to keep me from eating to much and it worked! Even my much much thinner little sister couldn't believe I was already full lol. I had 2 and a half pieces...this was from dominoes pizza so if you've gotten it before you know its not as big a portion as usual. they cut it into those little squares. I tried to pick out the smallest ones. Anyway I lost almost 11 lbs. this week! I know it's mostly water weight but I don't care! It seems to be working this time! All I know is this time I am not giving up I have to do this not only for myself but for my family too. I can't wait till this time last year...I am so ready to really live my life!
Congratulations on your first week, it sounds like you're doing great! 11 lbs gone... wooohoo!

to make changes, not excuses;
to be motivated, not manipulated;
to be useful, not used;
to excel, not compete.
I choose self-esteem, not self pity.
I choose to listen to my inner voice, not the random opinions of others.

That's fantastic- what a great start! It sounds like you are motivated, have a great attitude about what you're doing, and are already finding ways to make it a true lifestyle change you can live with!
I'm so excited for you! Doesn't it feel fantastic to be in control?
