RESULTS! ~ Week One

It’s been a week! Part of me feels like it was only yesterday that we started. Another part of me really feels some of our choices settling into habits. Lose or gain, week one has taught me a lot. It is what it is.

In most weight-loss plans, the first week is the best week you’ll ever have. Whether it’s shedding water weight or cleansing a certain type of sugar (as our leader told us last week), I really don’t know.Β  I wonder sometimes if that first week’s amazing results are what in a round about way causes people to give up. They remember having this incredible loss and either decide that the program doesn’t work because they can’t keep up at that pace, or they beat themselves up for not living up to what they know they can do because they’ve done it before.

For me, it’s a source of momentum. I know that every big loss is followed by a small gain (usually) and I’m not going to beat myself or the plan up about it when (if) it happens.

But I will thoroughly enjoy this number. – 6.4 lbs!!!

BTW, Jason’s number was drastically different from mine, but you’ll have to wait to hear it from him.
