First Official Weigh-In!
:::Drum Roll please:::
I have officially lost 7 pounds, 2.5% body fat, and 2 inches around my waist. Ta-daaa!
It's like magic. I've never been hungry (except on purpose: choosing to wait an extra half hour until dinner), I don't feel deprived (except of Coke), and I feel so much better!
I have a lot more patience. I can wake up much more easily (which is huge because I *hate* mornings). And I find myself sleeping better, more productive, and just generally more happy.
I am going to call this success!
Tom has lost .... 7 pounds as well! I don't know about the body fat and such, but his stomach is flatter!
None of my girls have lost weight. A very good thing :) I asked each child what she liked about the diet and each one said great things.
Regina: "Oh I sleep much better. I used to just lay there and it would be really late before I could fall asleep. And I can wake up and not be so tired."
Veronica: "Well... I still want cookies. I fall asleep right away now. And I don't have to spend a lot of time in the bathroom anymore!
Regina: "Yeah, me either!"
Amy: "Well, I used to toss around all night, and I don't do that anymore."
I can say that all three of them have been less moody overall. They do have their days though where they really hate the "diet" and we have a couple of meltdowns every once in a while, but overall, everything is going really well!
That's it for now. Be back later tonight!
