I just wanted to share - I've lost 6 lbs in 4 days! I know this is just the intial water weight as well but I worked my butt off the past few days.
I felt accomplished but never overwhelmed - so I think my plan is a very reasonable one to stick to. My mom took our son last night, so my fiance and I had a date. We went to ruby tuesday and I still did fabulously - had chicken fresco with light sauce and broccoli and salad for my sides, and did not finish my chicken. (all while fiance had bacon wrapped shrimp and bbq ribs w/ mashed potatoes [mashed is one of my favs!] - and I wasn't tempted at all.)
I ammm a little frustrated with him though. Not because he's not ready to lose weight and is still eating junk. But he's being a bad influence. Last night he got a mixed drink and kept telling me to have one. I know he wanted me to have a good time, but encouraging me to drink my calories does nothing for me. And then this morning we had to run out quickly and didn't have time for breakfast, so when we were done errands he wanted to grab mcdonalds. He asked me if I wanted a sausage egg and cheese biscuit like him. I just said uhh are you insane? lol and he says he forgot. Then later he did tell me he thinks I'm doing great and to keep it up. So I don't think it's intentional and he will probably just need to get used to my healthier lifestyle.
But anyways, I'm proud of myself for showing strong self control and for losing 6 lbs in 4 days! I'm gonna keep on going!
