Hmmmm. So in one week of getting back on track, I can lose almost three pounds and several inches all over my body???
That seems like a lot, but I measured correctly. And you can see the difference in these progress pictures, the first one take a week ago.
My guess: Water weight and bloat. I think that I was carrying a lot of water weight around, and now it's gone. And that makes me happy! The scale says I'm lighter and so do my jeans. :-)
I'm sure that the results this week will be less dramatic (though I would love to lose an inch or two of hips before this is all over!) and that is fine with me. I have 10 pounds left to lose and 9 weeks to get there.
I CAN DO THIS!!!
