Only 46 lbs to go. At this rate, I can get there in the next eleven weeks.
Of course, I know that isn't the way it's going to happen. I just love starting a program because the first week is always dramatic. The body really responds to being treated well....good food...activity and such....so just about everybody loses at least a couple of pounds almost immediately after starting any type of program. That's what sells diet schemes.
The trick here is to not think that, since I've lost a chunk of weight, I can slide back into some bad eating habits or slack off on the exercise. I'm readying myself for much less impressive weight losses, or even slight gains, for the next few months.
It's all about the big picture.
