New here - Starting week 2

Postby cowabunga » October 16th, 2006, 3:10 pm

I am new and I am on day one of my second week. I only lost 3 the first week and I stuck strickly to the diet.

I was completely discouraged on day 3 when I hadn't lost much weight, but my clothes feel so much better.

After the initial frustration, I am still sticking to it.

My taste buds are changing because I had some taste some chicken I thought was salty and they said it was fine. So that is good news.

I was wondering if anyone can tell me if I can have my Lean & Green for lunch instead of dinner?

Thank you

Would you rather eat what you want, or wear what you want?

Welcome Cowabunga! You sound like me -- a "slow loser". But hang in there. It is minus 3lbs instead of plus 3#s.

I would encourage you to take your measurements, esp. waist, hips, bust and thighs. I have lost a lot more inches than the pounds indicate and that is on areas that I measured. My husband measured my neck as a joke because he felt it was getting thinner - well whaddaya know I lost 1/2 an inch there. :lol: Also my knees. Who would think to measure that but there were inches lost there too. So get that tape measure out and it will keep you feeling good even if the scale "betrays" you. :D

Hang in there and stay on plan. 8)

I was a very slow loser, too. It can still be done, even if it takes some of us a little longer!!

Plus some of it depends on what you were eating before. People who already were watching what they ate or were watching carbs or anything like that often don't have that huge initial whoosh that others get. Same goes for people who don't have as much to lose.

Hi there,
Three pounds your first week -- is three pounds gone. :mrgreen: It's true we are all different and we all lose at our bodies very own rate. That's just the way we're made. Those who have more to lose seem to lose somewhat quicker. Think about it -- we are burning fat -- if you have more fat -- you have more fuel. Thus a greater weight loss. Be assured though that this is the fastest and safest way to part with those unwanted pounds.
What really matters though, is that you are parting with the pounds and on your journey to getting healthier. YOu will. :D Even a ten pound loss makes a difference medically speaking.
