I know I shouldn't get discouraged.

But the scale does make me a little frustrated.

I've been eating healthy all week, since I last saw Roy... and I lost 2.6 lbs, but for the last two days the scale is saying otherwise (only 1lb). I know I could possibly be gaining muscle since I just started working out... but in the back of my mind I thought the pounds would just melt off.

I'm not on a "diet" though, I'm eating how I want to eat for the rest of my life. I'm making healthy choices and limiting my portions.

I saw on Celebrity Fit Club a few of them have the same problem, and one of the counselors on the show said when you do it the right way (making it a lifestyle change) it will be much slower. I hope what she said is true. I really want this.

I do feel more confident. I feel like I CAN do this, and I am the one in control now. I'm really proud of myself for taking this step for me and for my family.

And speaking of family, since I have started cooking healthy (whole grains, more fruits & veggies & basically only cooking chicken or turkey) Joel has lost A LOT of weight without even trying, around 30lbs. I guess you could say I'm a little jealous, haha.

Tomorrow is my second hypnotherapy session with Roy. Can't wait to tell him the progress I've made :)

  1. Be encouraged - REAL (longlasting) weight loss is ALWAYS slow.

    Don't you just hate that! The same thing happened to my husband when I first starting cooking different (he lost 8 lbs).

  3. Maybe you should only weigh yourself weekly? It's surprising to know that if you weigh yourself in the AM you could be 5lbs heavier before you go to bed. Your weight is going to vary daily, hourly and so on. I gained 4lbs in a week because I ate terribly but lost it in 3 days...so really it wasn't a true weight gain.
    Stick to it, you are doing fantastic!
