"Only" 2.8 lbs
I got on the scale this morning and saw the result of my hard work. 2.8 pounds. My first reaction was disappointment, but as I got into the shower I started to put things into perspective. When I first started last Tuesday, I was hard core, no carbs no sugars, nothing but lean proteins and vegetables. I was also miserable, and I broke. I had a quarter pounder and fries on Saturday and then on Sunday a piece of cake. My "hard" work wasn't going to pay off because this was not a way I could live. I didn't gain all this weight at once, I am not gonna lose it all at once and to lose it, I needed something that worked. Luckily I figured out quite quickly what was gonna work for me. I immediately added fruit back into my diet and gave myself permission to have a small cheat a day. That cheat being a tablespoon of peanut butter that I mix with a banana. Delicious!! I am happy, the scale was still down and 2.8 lbs ain't that bad. I am proud of that loss and know I am more likely to keep it off with a "diet" that I can stick with it. One week in and I am feeling good.
