I'm sure you've been waiting on the edge of your seat all week wondering how I've done *said with much sarcasm*. Well I'm going to tell you whether you care or not. The results are in and they ain't to shabby. The first week and I am down 3.5 pounds! Hooray for me! And it was done without too much deprivation either. I can honestly say that I wasn't ever very hungry and I still managed to sneak in a cupcake, a few cookies, some takeout from Cafe Rio (heavenly) and dinner at the Mayan (not so good, will not be returning there again). Mostly I just cut down on portion sizes at meals and didn't ever take a second helping. Also, ALL mindless munching was cut out. It's far too easy to snack all day long when you are home all day, so before popping anything in my mouth I had to ask myself if it was something I REALLY wanted or if I was just going to eat it because it was there and I was bored. Seems to have worked, right? That being said, the first week always seems to be the easiest for me when trying to lose weight, and I never stick with it for long. But this time I am determined to keep going! Hopefully I will have more good news to post next Thursday!
