Day 8

So today was weigh-in day and I was thrilled!!!! I had a 10.6 lb weight loss in seven days! Of course, this will not be a weekly loss, but it sure was a good start. I really like this program. I like the food, I like the support I get from the staff, I love my small group who started the program at the same time I did and I think this is something that I can live with. I just hope my husband can, as I am not cooking for another 12 weeks.

I have been thinking this week that my type of obesity while it is an illness. It is almost an addiction for me. This program gives me lessons, but the test is not to loose weight. I truly believe the lessons are to make new habits and better choices and the REAL test will be when the time comes to KEEP the weight off. I can tell you in my lifetime I have probably lost two or three people in pounds of weight lost and I think this so far is a good plan for me.

Okay, no comments, but I did not have to buy the fiber yet. Let's just say everything came out okay this morning and I hope that THAT was not the majority of my weight loss. I do NOW understand why all those nice folks in the fiber ads were smiling. They were AFTER pictures!

I have talked about the shakes that are on the plan. I have for those of you on the program one of my favorites. Vanilla shake mixed in a cup of Chi Tea that has been sweetened with Splenda and blended with several ice cubes is really tasty.

Saturday I can go to the bank and request a new ATM card. So far none of my money has been returned, but I am keeping the faith.
