I'm 8 weeks in tomorrow and this last couple of weeks have been a hellish "When is it going to go down" time.
Well, for 8 weeks I have not had any Diet Coke. It has really helped my cravings tremendously (although I still could eat 10 bananas and not blink)!
In truth, I've been fluctuating all over the place since July 4th (right when I joined the fitness center and started working out).
Since then I have lost a whopping .7 lbs. So .7 lbs in 17 days - that's crazy!!!
I have lost 21.2 lbs in 8 weeks though which is 2.65 lbs per week - which is very respectable. I just don't like it fluctuating...I like to see it go down and down and down! Of course, many will say, don't weigh yourself everyday and it won't affect you. Well I could do that, but I probably would always be bloated on the days I weigh myself!! LOL. I love seeing the curved graph of weight loss. It motivates me.
When I lost the 100 lbs before - I did it over the course of 14 months which is about 1.666 lbs per week. So if I keep it all in perspective, I'm doing just fine!
