Wow, just back from my 1st weigh in and reached my rather ambitious target of 14lbs in the first week. It is actually day 9 (had some LT left over from last time), but still ecstatic as it had all gone to plan so far. This week I am going to start exercise again, I thought I would let my body adjust last week, so I am pushing hard to loose this gut with some workouts. I am actually more bothered about how I feel about myself and within myself, rather than the amount of weight I lose. Right now I still feel pretty much like I did when I started but as soon as the change in my body is obvious, then I will feel great too, and that shouldn't be too long now!...It is worth it!!
