A LOOK BACK… My first week – I lost 7.8 pounds.

For those just getting started here is a look at my day-by-day progress I made in the first three weeks on program.  I am one of those that steps on the scale morning and night… For some of you this may drive you crazy so once a week is perfectly fine.

Some background: I had been doing Weight Watchers (CORE) prior to starting Take Shape For Life (TSLF) for 2 ½ years. The first year I dropped 56 pounds. The next year and a half I lost 9 more pounds. Let me just say that those 18 months were not easy and very difficult to keep myself motivated. I was in limbo and it wasn’t fun. Three weeks on TSFL, and I was hooked.  I’d lost 11.1 Pounds in 21 days!

TSFL 1st 3 Weeks on Program Chart

Week # 1 started for me on a Thursday – May 28th.  That morning I weighted in at 190 Lbs. The first 3 days are critical. Most people will transition into the “fat burning” phase of the program somewhere from the 3rd to 5th day. My first couple of days,  I lost mostly water weight. Still weight, but not the fat that was yet to start melting off.. As you can see from the chart below my first 2 days I lost 4.2 pounds.  Which Kicked in my motivation. Days’ 3 – 5 were slow.  I finished my 6th day with a bang, down another -2.1 pounds.

My first week I lost -7.8 pounds!

Week #2 I had a net loss of -2.0 even with a couple of days where my weight went up slightly. Week # 3 I broke the 10 pound barrier.

I’d lost MORE  in 16 DAYS on TSFL than I had in 18 MONTHS doing Weight Watchers.

My 3 week weight loss total was: -11.1 pounds.

I became a believer…
