I'd like to join a weight loss thread. I'm about 50 lb overweight. I'm trying a new HEALTHY diet and lost 10 lb in 5 days. Really brought my confidence up. I'm not feeling ready to exercise yet.
I was mowing the lawn and so completely exhausted from it and realized I was dragging all the extra weight with me. I was so angry and humiliated, I decided to do something about it.
The diet is high fat, low carb, grain-free, sugar-free. No calorie restriction. The first week that I lost so much weight, I was eating FIVE eggs for breakfast, bacon, pork ribs, veggies in pork fat (yum!), fried fish, salads. Good stuff. It was REALLY hard to start out because my mood swings and blood sugar were so related. Now I started seeing success, I'm getting motivated to stick to it.
The first week, I lost 3" around my bust, 4" from my waist, and 3" from my hips. Not bad!
Week 2 starts tomorrow. I know my results will not be as dramatic, but that's OK. Im still learning how to eat better, and I'm hoping to get enough confidence to start exercising. We have a weight machine in the basement, and my son takes a long nap still, so that is the plan.
