The Numbers At Week 2

Very interesting. As of Friday morning I had only lost 1 more pound this week. I was kind of disappointed but then I remembered something I read before. I've read that when you're on a liquid type of diet you lose a lot of weight the first week, but then your body thinks that it's starving so you slow down losing because it's trying to take from itself to feed itself.

I wondered what would happen once I started eating on Friday, since now I'm eating reasonable food and reasonable amounts. Now my body doesn't think it's starving anymore.

Well I am happy to report that as of this morning I have now lost 1.5 more pounds for the week, making my total for the week 2.5 pounds and so far, 17.5 pounds total!! Very cool.

I think I've written before that I lost weight with each pregnancy because I was on such strict gestational diabetic diets. So after having the kids, and then nursing them, I ended up losing weight. Inevitably I would return to old habits and I would start to gain weight back each year. Well, now I'm only 7.5 lbs from what I weighed after each pregnancy.

So those of you who know me remember how I looked after I had my son. I'm almost that weight again. OK to give you a good idea of what I look like at that weight, see the picture of me on my profile here. I started this site not too long after having him.

My daughter keeps telling me that you look like me.
