Last week I confessed that I had over-indulged over the holidays and needed to lose weight. I shared some of my tried and proven weight loss techniques, in the hopes that they may help some of you. If they have, please leave me a comment to let me know!

So now I want to report on my 1st week's weight loss results.

I lost 10 lbs.

I was pretty strict about staying on my diet and not cheating even though I often felt hungry. But I knew that was just a side effect of starting a diet. Its pretty common to feel like you're starving all the time during the 1st week of a diet while your body is adjusting to the smaller portions and lower level of carbs and sugar. Toward the end of the week that constantly starving feeling had subsided.

So I'm pretty happy with my 1st week's results and hope to do almost as well next week.

Congratulations, Mark! That's great.

Fantastic! My big problem is not food, but wine. Tons of empty calories. But living in wine country makes it very difficult. At least I don't drink soda... But I do drink fruit juices cut with bubbly water. I just need to be very conscious of switching away from wine once my meal is over... it's too easy just to keep going with the grape! Fruit juice is also more expensive than our local wine.

good on ya, darling!

I joined WW online on 1/10; first week's loss is 5 pounds! yep, it takes getting used to tracking and smaller portions, but in the long run it will be worth it. was I cheating a bit? yep. but I know more about what to do/not to do for week 2.
