I just finished my first week. Yespecially I am 3lbs down but I found it to be a good learning experience on healthy eating. I set myself two goals that regardless of the scales I would eat 5 a day and three meals a day within my bmi calorie limits. I also used a pedometer on my phone a lot more to work out my activity level. I fell off the wagon once due to stress. Used it as a learning experience and got straight back on again. Also planned and enjoyed treats. I think I'm feeling much more confident of achieving my main goal of lifelong healthy eating and approach to food. So encouraged by everyone's posts here of successes and struggles - makes u realise no one is really alone in this. Keep going.
