    So, I'm down 7 pounds this week. Yup - 7 pounds. I'm super excited as this is the lowest I've weighed in 4 years (when FI and I met), but 7 pounds in 1 week is a bit extreme! But I've been approaching this go around differently than I've ever approached a weight loss attempt so it seems to be working. I just hope it's not all water weight, because water weight comes right back! But I probably sweated out 3 pounds after my workout last night.

    I just took my measurements and I'm down 3 inches in my bust, 1.5 inches in my waist, and 2 inches in my hip/butt area. Of course the boobs are always the first to go... GRRR.

    They say healthy weight loss is about 2 pounds a week, so while I'm excited about this, I'm a bit concerned! But I've been killing myself in my workouts, so I'm glad it wasn't all for nothing! But I'm just going to start psychologically preparing for my inevitable plateau!

    wow good for you......great job...

        I've actually been trying to lose weight for a few months now and it had been happening very slowly until this week. (I've lost 12 pounds overall, but only 7 since we started this challenge.) I'm wondering if things just finally kicked in this week or something. I also changed up my diet quite a bit this week...I finally got my eating under control. (Except for one slip up last night.)

        But I don't think getting dizzy in the middle of workouts is a good thing. I've been making sure I get the right amount of carbs and protein at *almost* every meal, but maybe I was just pushing myself too hard in the workouts.

            I have lost almost 2#. Not much but it is a start. I would like to lose 5-10 before I leave on the 30th. Not sure if that will happen or not. I am going to give it my best shot. Good job everyone!! The totals are amazing for the 1st week.

              I stayed the same. I am disappointed, but really shouldn't be. I drank a lot of margaritas last night and ate yummu fatty Mexican food.

              I am now eating a WW maple brown sugar oatmeal and decided that I am going to lose two pounds by next Wednesday!

              Congrats on everyone's loss so far.

                I have lost 5.4 lbs, good but I know it is just the first week and it wont keep up like that, especially since I cant work out. We are all doing great! This is such an awesome program! I know I will probablly have a bad day coming up so cant expect the same results!

                  I'm down 2.2 this week! Why are people upset with 1.5 and 2 pounds? That's a great weight loss for one week! You should be celebrating!!!

                    Yari - staying the same is great! ESPECIALLY with all of the temptations in front of you!!! Sounds like you didn't overdo it on the Mexican food, and that's great!

                    5.4lbs is AWESOME!!! That makes me feel better about mine! I was getting concerned! But it's incredible that you've done that without working out, too! You must be eating really well! Great job!
