One week down...
The first week of my new weight loss journey has been fairly typical of my previous attempts. I've lost 5 pounds - mostly water weight, I'm sure - but I have made some serious changes and I'm definitely concerned about being able to maintain them. I keep reminding myself that I have neglected myself for too long and the "sacrifices" I have to make are necessary. They are also fairly minor, really - why should I tell myself, "yes, you may have whatever you want to eat and you may eat as much as you'd like"?
In addition to changing the diet, I have started to exercise again and that definitely feels great. So I'm trying to stay positive and have a goal of maintaining the new healthier lifestyle for at least 30 days.
