5 Weeks Results

So I have been on this adventure for 5 weeks (started Aug 26th) and the results are in..... I have lost 19.6 pounds! I am so ecstatic, and it has been challenging at times, especially the first 2 weeks. I feel like it is all easy as pie from here, and I feel very proud of myself.

But even more than the weightloss has made me happy in these past 5 weeks:

1. This is the first time I made it further than 28 days on any weightloss challenge.

2. This is the first time that when I am feeling down, that I didn't give in to any cravings. In the past, I have ALWAYS given in. I have NOT once wanted to change my positive path forward.

I started this journey with major withdrawel symptoms, headaches, nausea, hunger, doubt, etc. I'd say I'm doing pretty darn good so far.

I hope that others that haven't made it as far as me can see what is obtainable if they just keep trying.

My start date is 8/25 and I've been watching your progress on these boards and you've done wonderful!

The freedom I feel from food and how it used to control me is amazing, I'm guessing you're feeling the same way!

Good job!

Way to go! It is so rewarding to see progress for making good decisions.

I never thought I would be 40 pounds down only 4 months in. My only regret is that I didn't figure out this woe a lot sooner.
