Week 2

Do I really have to update? 

Let's just say this week wasn't as good as last. Nowhere near—opposite in fact. I gained weight. It is quite frustrating really since the week started great with me exercising daily. Unfortunately I also weighed myself daily and got discouraged when I started gaining weight even though my eating was the same and I had started exercising. All downhill from there. I didn't go completely overboard, but I wasn't as strict and this morning's weigh in reflects that. But there is no 'i' in quit. Oh wait...um...well, there is no quit in me! So I am saddling up again, just with a different horse. I find that I am better able to stick with an actual diet as opposed to a generic "I am going to eat better" so after seeing Barbara's success with Fat Flush I have decided to give it a go. I like the whole detox idea and while I don't think it will be easy, I do think it is doable.  I am much better at restricting my food than incorporating exercise. That being said, I am going to eventually begin exercising—I've always thought a toned body is nicer than a thin one. 
So, how was your week? Better than mine I'm sure.

Good luck on the Fat Flush, I keep reminding myself that I need to do it. The first 3 days are hard, then I always get a burst of energy on day 4, and feel good afterwards. Then I break down and eat something sugary, and it's downhill from there!!

I lost 1 lb from last week. It is just the pound I gained back last Wednesday morning, but I'm counting it. Good luck on the flushing. :) love

Jessica said...

Sounds great Regina! I'm curious to see your results next week!!

As for me, I'm down one pound.

Michelle said...

Um, {ducking for cover}, I'm down 3 pounds.


OK, I gave up meat for Lent. And snacking. And sweets. And alcohol.

I always lose weight well in Lent. Then comes Easter, and I gain and gain and gain. Ya'll can laugh at me in a few weeks, ok?
