Well I have the first week punched and I feel wonderful! I had a lovely surprise when I stepped on the scale this morning - down 9.8 pounds!!! I realize that it comes off quick the first week or two but I hope what will keep me motivated this time around is the fact that I can already notice a difference in how my clothes fits!!!

Rather than aiming for being perfect, just aim to be little bit better today than you were yesterday.

Congratulations to everyone who stuck by their plan and has made life-long habit changes. It is great to see you here.

I lost 2.3 pounds last week. I started Phase 2 of the South Beach Diet. I tried to be mindful of it and maintain a relaxed approach. Phase 2 is where I plan to spend the next year so I want sustainable effort for now. I think this is something I can do.

yay Longto...please be careful not to lose too fast! if this was your first or second week that loss is wonderful..farther along make sure you are eating enough!! 1-2 pounds is the healthy, long lasting way to go!!

Danielle..WELCOME!! figure this...the first couple weeks you may lose big, then aim for 1-2 a week. thats around 4-8 pounds a month, and you will notice a difference in not long!!!

My wi showed that I had maintained, no loss but no gain. So I'm okay with that.

Congrats to everyone who lost and those that maintained like I have no worries there's this week to get it moving down again, the scale that is, lol.

For those that may have gained try to go back and think over your week and see if maybe you can pinpoint exactly where you may have sidetracked and then work on that this week.

Take care my fellow Sparkers ! I know we can do this together !

The scale reports I've lost 6.1 pounds this week. I want to believe it, but I'm stunned and shocked and not sure. Maybe if I tell y'all it'll be easier to accept.

Monday morning as my official WI to keep my weekend self accountable. That was my strategy. It is kind of working. This AM I had a 3-pound loss. (I think mostly because last week I only lost nine-tenth of a pound.) I'm going to focus on 260 for next week and see what happens! Chug-a-chug-a choo choo! I think I can, I think I can...

slow is BEST jojo dont let anyone tell you otherwise!! Sparks suggested 1-2 pounds a week is what is recommended by the true experts. you lose fat not muscle and it stays off. anyone losing much more than that other than the first few weeks on a plan or under extenuating circumstances is not doing themselves alot of good!!
