Weigh in!

Alright, it has been a couple of weeks since I last posted. I have had continuing success since my last post. Last week I lost 2 pounds and this week I also lost 2 pounds. I am now down 10 pounds since I started. I am now really starting to notice it in my clothes. I can fit into clothes that I haven't been able to wear for a while. It is really motivating!

I have also downloaded a new app on my phone that teaches you to do either 50, 150, 200 or 250 sit-ups. I do it every other day and since I haven't been able to exercise since I started this, it is a small thing that helps me. I am working toward doing 150 sit-ups and am currently at 31. It is still difficult, but it is getting easier!

Weigh Day!

Well, another week has come and gone and that means that it is time for another weigh in today! It was a relatively good week this week. I have been having some issues with my blood sugars lately. My pump is set up to give me a lot more insulin than I need at this point since I am eating a lot less carbs. This causes a lot of issues with my blood sugar going low and that means that I have to eat unnecessary carbs and calories. I am hoping that this gets better!

So, with all this in mind I was a little worried going into this weeks weigh in. I was just hoping that the scale would at least show a loss since I am eating much healthier than I used to. I was thrilled when I stepped on and saw a 3 pound loss this week! I was very surprised and happy. I am not sure that I could do the 17 Day Diet for the rest of my life; I think it is too strict to do forever, but it definitely provides a great spring-board to jump start any weight loss!
