End of week 1 - Take 2

So, I came, I got motivated, I fell off the wagon, I have started again!

Week 1 lost 5lbs. Brilliant result and feeling a lot stronger again. I think the majority of this will be water weight as I am now no longer eating bread or pasta and am eating loads of veg.

The removal of wheat from my diet is definately helping me, I was always complaining of stomach ache and head aches especially after eating pasta or bread, but I haven't had either illness all week.

My biggest hurdle is when I step on the scales on week 2 and realise I haven't lost a huge number as I settle into 1lb per week.....I tend to get disheartened by start of week 3 and then think sod it I will have cake. However, this time my highly competetive girlfriend is on the journey with me and I refuse to let her stick to it longer than me lol We have different goals so we are not competing on weightloss just the act of sticking to it!!!!

Although I lost weight since Christmas and then put some back on I have realised from the details below that I have shifted 7lbs since I found this site.

Thank you to you all with your inspirational stories and motivation that you provide to keep me feeling sane and thinking I can be successful!!!!!
