Hello fellow newbies. I am just into my second week and have lost two pounds and two inches off my waist. Already I feel better in myself probably due to more balance in my diet and no overeating. My energy levels also seem to have increased. The calorie counting is actually quite fun (maybe I don't get out enough!) as it helps you feel in charge of your own body - does that make sense? Thanks are due to the people further along on their journeys for the support and encouragement. I'm looking forward to next weigh day.
