My first week results!
 
So, I'm just so excited i have to share with those who will understand just how exciting this is!

I've tried (and failed) LC so many times in the last 12 years. I never got past a week before I wanted to cry and call it quits, and having lost 1-2 pounds.

I lost the majority of my weight by, well, basically starving from stress (my exh had an affair, left, and had another baby... we just got divorced tuesday) but the last 6 months or so has been creeping back up. I had 'starved' myself down to 160. Weight creeped back up, and I was 172 on January 16th.

I did some lo cal (under 1200/day) and in the first week I was down 2.5 pounds.. not shabby! Then another 2 weeks or so to get down to 168.

Well, Saturday, Feb 4th, was my first DD. I weighed 168 that morning.

Today, after yesterday's DD, a week later, I'm 161.6.

6.4 pounds. I just can't believe it. :stars:

I know it'll slow down. I know that I'll mess up here and there.

But I LOVE THIS WOE! I don't feel deprived. I don't feel like crap. I feel empowered and healthy and HAPPY.

This is the first time ever in my life I've lost weight and felt ANY of those things.

I just had to share. Thank you for reading. :o
