Best wishes for a great week 2!
Suzanna1,
Thanks for the encouragement! I'm excited to be in week two. I can feel and see the difference and feel confident that I'll pass the 10 pound mark this week.

So far I've only added in almonds -- which I was thrilled to do -- I love them and they CRUNCH! LOL But your advice was great -- 100 calories isn't a worry.

Hope your week is awesome, too!

My clinic advises against staying on week 1 (unless one doesn't lose ANY weight, or gains). They explained that a high percentage of protein over a period of time can negatively affect the kidneys. It's better to gradually work back into all your food groups with healthy, "normal" percentages. You can do it!
AnnK,

Thanks for the encouragement. I was discouraged, but I'm feeling much better.

Wow, I see that you have surpassed your goal! Congratulations!

Your advice was right on target and obviously it has worked for you! I have only added in almonds, so far, but I'm thrilled with that. And I have missed salad.

Thanks for taking time to post. I sure appreciate it.

I weighed in after week 1 yesterday. I was down 8.6 of which 4.2 was fat. I was very happy. I am excited about what is to come and getting to add vegetables and fruits. However, I am confused about how much to eat. I am now waiting on a call back from the center.

Weighed in yesterday evening and lost 6.9lbs. 6lbs of fat, so that was good, but I was slightly disappointed. Wanted a bigger loss my first week.

I lost 10lbs the first week but am bit nervous about this week. I too added almonds and they are a welcome treat. I had string beans and chicken yesterday. I have been staying with the 2 veggies because I love salad and dont want to slip out of ketosis I'm between moderate and large. This program is about making making smarter choices and it works. I also have the energy to get back on the treadmill too. We will see what happens SAT at my next (2nd) weigh in. I'm a bit nervous have been sticking to it but am afraid of what I will see now that they have given us a bit more to eat.

week 1 results

I'm down -6.8lbs my first week. -4.2lbs of fat -2.1 lbs water, so what's the other 0.5 lost from????? Tried a medi weight loss cinammon pecan protein bar, it was yummy, expensive at $14for 7/box. But I figured this is worth it, because I can keep these at work, and use them when there is not time for eating.

Glad to finally check in here... Week one weigh in produced a loss of 11.4 lbs! Going on vacation next week so I'm hoping to be able to keep up my water intake as best as I can.

Lost 8 Pounds!

So happy to have lost 8 pounds!!!!

Very glad the misery of the first week paid off! It was rough the first two days, but by the middle of day three, it just felt like I could do it. Didn't take the prescription at all--just the Fat Burner supplements.

11.4 pounds in my first week. 6 days later, down another 3.6. I am so excited and now see why they call it "the one that works!"

Thanks Shar and Eptexy!

And Shar, I'm extremely proud of you... we do a lot of these little 'weight-loss tests' and none of them have been anything we've stuck with more than a few days.

You did so incredible this past week, and we're going to kick @$s over the next few weeks and knock these goals out of the park! I'm proud of both of us for sticking with this!

Thanks everyone on the boards who are supportive of everyone's journey through Weight-Loss! Your encouragement definitely is helpful, especially when things get tough!

Hi All-

I had my first weigh-in this morning and I am happy to report that I am 15.2lbs down. I don't want to get too excited because I am more concerned about W2 more than anything else.

Great job to everyone who have posted their results...every bit we lose is positive!

Way to go, Bingo!

I weighed in on yesterday with 9.2lbs lost. My pants fit better, I have a spring in my step, and the hills are alive with the sound of music.
Excited about this journey!

Fantastic! Good results can most definitely be encouraging to all of us

I've been looking over my Tanita printouts this morning trying to understand how much of it is actually fat loss as opposed to water weight.

Trying to figure out how to use this forum but glad I found you all. I've been trying to loose 10 lbs for the last 3 months - working out everyday and eating lower carbs. But I've actually GAINED 7 lbs in the last 6 wks (hopefully from the birth control I started 6 wks ago?). I was sooooooooooo frustrated yesterday! I'm so glad I found this program.

I hope my wk one results are as good as you all have had!
