WOW!! JUST WOW!!! I am absolutely beaming as I write. Standing on my new scales this morning reveals I am 33 st. 5lb. An incredible THIRTEEN pound loss since my last recorded weigh-in at the hospital 16 days ago.
Although I know I have worked hard this first week I was not expecting a drop like this. My hope was for between 3-5 pounds as I thought my body would go into a panic mode at having started yet another ‘diet’.
After the first hour of quietly congratulating myself on this fantastic start to my transformation, I started to try to make sense of this spectacular loss. I was, of course, fully clothed and wearing shoes when I was weighed in the hospital. This morning I was just wearing my boxer shorts. So that accounts for possibly 5 pounds difference.
I have worked hard this opening week and have not eaten between meals. I cannot say this has left me feeling hungry but the temptation to overeat is still there and I certainly cannot become complacent.
Losing almost a stone has given me a great boost. I am already looking forward to seeing what next week will bring.
