    Just thought I'd share a moment of triumph: I've been on a diet for exactly one calendar month, and I've lost....23lb! I just cannot believe it. I already look pretty different. This has been more than I was expecting---a LOT more---and it's given me the filip I needed to press on into month 2. Yay!

    wow that really is alot :|, its recommended that you should lose between 1 and 2lbs a week which would be 8lbs in a month!

    Have you been eating enough?

    Thanks! Yes, I've been eating healthily, but sparingly.

    It is a great start! Just be sure that you're eating enough to keep yourself healthy. There's no point in losing all of the weight only to feel ill for it.
    Keep up the hard work though hun :)

    bless you Emz! Yeah, just had a week long road trip from Vilnius to the UK in a van---1500 miles---and it was very difficult to find healthy food! (Herring in a cold raisin sauce in Gdansk was a particular non-highlight.)
