Another first in a long while

Checking in for accountability. I'm safe and sound in bed with my laptop on my legs. I've done it... finished my first week with a weight loss. I also managed to stick to the plan over the weekend, that was a first in a long while and instead of celebrating my loss with unplanned food, I stuck to the plan which I haven't done in a long while either. I'm pretty pleased with myself and feel a bit more in control now. Thank you HU and all of you. I really needed that.

Onwards now, my goal for this week is to loose another pound and carry on with my yoga and walking. Practice patience... we'll get there.

Fantastic Elke, you're off to a great start! :)

If you can do it for a week, you can do it for two weeks. Baby steps lead to giant strides. You can do this! :)

Hi Elke516 Well done you, I am sure the scales will reward you for a full week on the plan, if not - do consider keeping a record of your inches, I choose to check 6 measurements..

My 6 are: Bust, Under bust (where the bra strap is), waist, hips, upper thigh and upper arm.

It's lovely seeing the inches descend and keeping a record.. Even if the scales stay the same. My sister gave me an unwanted 2017 diary (week to view) and I keep a list of what I eat & drink each day and in the extra bit I keep my start weight and 6 measurements, last weeks and this week's... This way I can see how far I've come.

Wishing you continued success.. Gonna be cheering you on 🎉🎉🎉

Well done Elke516 ! You've made a great start :) Great job for not treating yourself with food, that's what got many of us into this pickle in the first place...xx

Thank you ANewMe, you're so right saying that. There is still my inner voice trying to tell me that it is ok to binge. Oh I'm giving it a kick in the backside :)
