{July 25, 2012}   Short update on my journey…more to come Friday!

I just want to let those that are following my weight loss and becoming healthier journey that I am STILl going strong, day 6 and I have managed to get close to 1200 calories everyday without going over and no more than 30 grams of carbs per meal, just like my doctor prescribed!

So far, I have noticed my stomach is giving me less problems and I am less sore in my muscles than before when I would walk around a bit. I have also noticed that these past six days have been so much happier and less depressed feeling for me. I have so much hope and joy that I forgot I was capable of and I almost feel like the old me who was so much more full of life. I have NOT weighed since last Saturday when I saw no change on the scale. I decided for this first week to wait until this Friday to weigh. It’s really hard because I am impatient but I want to give my body time to show changes and my metabolism hopefully to kick in. There has been only a few times where I have felt down but I have been able to quickly get those thoughts out of my head.

I am so looking forward to all the changes this journey will bring me through and I am very optimistic that although the process is hard, it will be worth it in the long run. Part of this new found hope I believe comes from all this support I have received from people, both close to me and not as close. It means so much to know people care and WANT you to succeed. Knowing all of you truly are behind me through this has given me what I need to start really believing in myself again. I CAN DO IT!

I will let you know my first weight check in on Friday. I would LOVE to see a big number, but I am trying to keep myself realistic and if I can even see a 2-3 pound weight loss than I will be ecstatic.

Well done Sharon. At this early stage it is as good to feel better about yourself as it is to notice pounds falling off. We are all on your side.



Thanks! 🙂
