We had our second weigh-in this morning. I lost 1.2 lbs. in the last 10 days. It's not as much as my first weigh-in, and I have to admit that I was bummed at first. Of course, I had to show excitement when I weighed, because the nephew was there and he lost 1.8 lbs. I didn't want him to be discouraged, so I couldn't show discouragement either.
I have worked through it, and I feel good about it now. Many friends have been very encouraging, reminding me that all of the exercise builds muscle, and muscle weighs more than fat. It could also be hormones. I remember the exact same thing happened to that guy, Ross, on Celebrity Fit Club. He lost 15 lbs. the first week and NOTHING the second weigh in, even though they knew he had stuck to the diet and exercised everyday. Dr. Ian told him he had "shocked" his system, and to keep doing what he was doing and it would pick up again, so I am heeding the same advice. :-)
I will not give up. :-) As one dear friend reminded me, I didn't "pile it on" overnight, and it isn't going to come off overnight. :-) Babysteps..... :-)
