Week One - Done!

4 posts in this topic

I finished my first week yesterday. I lost 6 lbs! (go me!)

I am very happy with that and have spent some time today looking at pictures on the internet of "five pounds of fat". Really motivates you to burn through more of that stuff.

I cannot tell a lie, week one was not easy. Especially towards the end.

I am already sick of salads with no bacon, cheese or good tasting dressing. And by yesterday evening I was very, very hungry. I read here in the forums about rutabaga fries and made some but was not overly impressed, (I didn't have any ketchup in the house .....that would have helped).........although I will say a two pound rutabaga did fill the empty spot in my middle that felt like it was trying to eat me from the inside out. :blink:

lol Congrats on the 6 lb loss! That first week really is a motivator. I feel your pains about the salads. If I eat another one I feel like I am going to be sick. Change it up and eat something else. I don't even eat salads anymore. Maybe one a month and I pour the turkey chili over it. I just cook a whole bunch of veggies in the oven or sauté on the stove with I Can't believe It's Not Butter. Helps me get all my veggies in for the day and curb that hunger. And best yet, NO SALADS! Seriously, I can't eat a salad without stuff on it. Just isn't my thing. So if I was going to stay on plan I knew I had to find something else.

congrats on a first great week! its hard at first, i had to tell myself "fake it until you make it" the change up in foods is hard but you will get used to it, you'll learn to love veggies and how to make salads that are actually tasty. there are unlimiteds you can add in a salad that spice it up and are better choices than what we were used to. I add a tbs of blue cheese, some chopped walnuts, a handful of turkey , things like that. And the jc dressing, i mix the two kinds together and its a better flavor. Salads aren't my favorite but when i do make one, i make it really delicious. It just takes time to figure out how to flavor up things. Give it some time, and come to the forums often for tips and tricks and ideas and to share your progress.

Keep up the good work!

Thank you Gwen and Sonya for the tips and encouragement. Still figuring out how to follow posts here and the site upgrade has interfered with replying, but again, thank you so much!
