Out of the shadows...into the "light"

Postby Janae » June 3rd, 2006, 11:55 am

Hi everyone-

I am stepping out of the shadows to introduce myself and to thank you all for your words of encouragement and motivation that I have been reading for a couple weeks. I feel as though I know so many of you and I look forward to getting better acquainted.

I am on Day 3 of the program. Things are going fine. I have referred to your posts many times to find your ideas on best preparation of the meal replacements. I have not had headaches or tummy rumbings....just food dreams and a couple bouts with hic-cups(?!?) the first day. I am holding off weighing until my 1 week milestone. Actually, the first morning I took my blood sugar, my blood pressure, did my measurements (in several places!) and weighed for the first time in months. That was an almost overwhelming dose of reality :shock: ...and I don't need to OD too quickly on numbers.

I have over 100 lbs to lose. You have been an inspiration to me and that "gentle nudge" I needed to get started. I look forward to sharing the journey together.

Thanks, again
