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!
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…
Now Fast Forward to today: In the past 18 weeks I have lost a total of 37 pounds on Take Shape For Life/Medifast
