20 DOWN!

Today I hit to me the first major success in this diet....20lbs gone!  The diet hasn't really gotten any easier but I have found that I'm just not even hungry for food.  It's a struggle most days to eat my 500 calories.

I'm anxious to take a picture and see what a 20 lb lose looks like.  I feel lighter all over and feel a difference in the way things fit and lay on me but I just don't know if I see much in the mirror, but I think I have this image of what I look like in my mind and that's all I see.

I'm about 21 day in  (about half way) and the next few weeks will prove to be some of the most challenging as we host and attend parties including Dealey's 3rd birthday part with a theme of blue M&Ms!  Lots of sorting to do but no snacking!  Amazingly though I don't miss sugar at all, I miss milk and cheese most, not sure why but I do....

I feel amazing though and am so happy to see a weight I haven't seen in a number of years!  On to the next 20!


  1. I am so happy for you and SOOO PROUD! I can't wait to see you.
    Remember the first 3 weeks of maintenance is no starches or sugars. But lots more fruit and vegetable choices! The best part is when you start dropping sizes in jeans. See you soon. Let's go to lunch when you get on maintenance! Love you - Linda
