Of course, there will be no Great Minnesota Get Together (The Minnesota State Fair) for me this year, because that’s just all about eating (at least to me!) and there is no way I’m going to ruin what I’ve started. Mini-donuts, cheese curds and milk shakes will have to wait a year. Everyone who is going, have some for me. 😉
Well, it actually might be less than 39, since the 40 weeks of weight loss was based on 2.5 lbs a week and I just had my Week 1 weigh in at SlimGenics and I lost 7.75 lbs!! Too bad every week can’t be a Week One, huh? 😉
As you can imagine, I’m pretty happy with that for Week One and I’m highly motivated to keep going. How could I NOT be?
Going forward, I’m praying for 3 lbs a week. SlimGenics says I can lose 3-5 lbs a week, so I figure if I can keep on track with the low end of that, I will be pleased, because that’s a lot of weight each week. If I were to maintain that average from here on out, my weight loss phase would be cut down to only about 31 weeks instead of 40 weeks.
The best thing is that I really haven’t been all that hungry (they say you won’t be, but I had to experience it to believe it!), except for one day last week where I was out and about running errands in the morning and I forgot to bring a morning snack with me. I didn’t eat anything between breakfast and lunch and as a result, I was STARVING by the time lunch rolled around and I really wasn’t able to recover all day.But other than that, not hungry! 7.75 lbs of weight loss and not hungry! Who knew it was even possible?!
