I see a glimmer of hope. I have lost 2 pounds this week. I have been using a site my friend April recommended called "Lose it.com". It's free and it is very similar to the Weight Watchers online site. You create a profile, set goals and deadlines, some biological info and it sets up a reasonable timeline for your weight loss based on your calorie allowance. You log your activity, your food and weight ( I do this just once a week, otherwise I would go nuts) and LoseIt.com takes care of the rest. I had some success with the WW online and hopefully this combined with the gym every day will produce some good results.
I guess the proof is in the pudding, I am down 2 pounds this week. I know the norm is to lose it very easy in the beginning, so while I am encouraged I remain cautiously optimistic. Well maybe doggedly determined is the better phrase. I simply refuse to be a fat bridesmaid, refuse.
