Day 7: I am doing better today…the scale shows a bit of a drop again so I’m taking that as being back on track. Did not go to gym yesterday so I must go today. Was severely tempted to go off the diet last night…but stuck to my guns and was rewarded by the scale this morning. I’ll post measurements tomorrow morning for my first week results.
I agree with Kelly…we need to keep the posts happening here to keep us motivated! It’s helping me a lot to know that others are suffering to win the battle against the flab and are successful!
Kelly-Great job on losing the 5 pounds…fantastic! Great work! In my mind, as long as it’s coming, off albeit a bit slower than in the past, it’s important to feel that you have energy for working out and that you can survive on the calorie restrictions.
I am frustrated by the supposed step backwards yesterday morning, but will have to put that into perspective with tomorrow’s weigh-in and measurement taking. I am trying to focus on getting through this on a day-to-day basis knowing that lots of small losses will add up to a significant amount in 4 to 6 weeks’ time.
For those of you that might not know it, there is another thread of posts (see Brock’s Female Fat Fast) that is helping me as well. These threads are the story and progress of a woman named Laurie who has lost over 41 pounds on a “female” version of this diet…if she can do it, so can we…and, why not give Laurie some more support!
