The agony of not seeing the scale move for days even though you are doing everything right!
Before I started down this path again, I invested in a doctors scale. I was so tired of stepping on a digital scale and having it read 6 different weights in the span of 1 minute. I love my scale. Even when it doesn't move.
The reality is I've had a cold and I got my period which are the two things that mostly make me retain water. So I shouldn't be so annoyed at the scale, yet there it is!
Week 1 - I lost 7 lbs
Week 2 - I lost 2 lbs
Week 3 - I lost 4.5 lbs
Week 4 - I lost 1 lb
So in 4 weeks I have lost 14.5 lbs, which is nothing to sneeze at. I know now it starts to go slower, but I've been down this road before. I just have to revist my blog from 2011 when I started to be real serious about my health.
I've had 30 days without Diet Coke, which I am telling you is essential to this process. The first thing I did before I came undone was have a Diet Coke, and then another. Without Diet Coke, I have no cravings for sweet things. I'd rather have a fruit or a vegetable than a cookie. Truth.
Here's to the next 4 weeks!
