OK I joined the "Look Great in 2008" challenge on October 3rd but had started my weight loss journey on September 3rd. My initial goal was to lose 86 pounds-WOW that's a whole person-well a kid anyway. As of October 3rd I had lost 8 pounds in about 5 weeks. Not bad but after losing 6 pounds the very first week I was really hoping for at least 2-3 pounds a week.
Anyway, this morning I got on the scale...and I've lost 5 pounds this past week!! I have really been watching what I eat, trying to add fruits and veggies-still not a big variety of either but at least I am eating them. Funny thing is I have eaten out 4 times this last week. Went to a pizza buffet twice-but only ate one slice of pizza at one visit and none at the second. Went to Applebee's twice-got what I thought was a good meal, but looked it up when I got home to find it was a 1000 calorie meal!! YIKES! Still only had 2k calories that day. But did much better the second visit to Applebee's and chose something off the WW menu.
So I feel much better this week. Hopefully I'll be able to fit in some of my old jeans soon.
