Week 3 Results

Well, today ends my 3rd week on the SCD. I must say, I am still extremely pumped about eating this way. The only problem is that I rarely ever get hungry, so I have to force myself to eat!

I started at: 238

Week 1 weight: 229

Week 2 weight: 227

Week 3 weight: 224

I have lost a total of 14 lbs!

I am beyond excited about this.

I have only walked the dog once this week (I am such a bad mom), but plan on walking her several times this week.

When I first told my husband that i was going to try a new way of eating, he just made fun of me and told me I wouldnt stick with it, like everything else I've ever tried. Shakes (Body by Vi is a scam, I'm convinced of it), WW points, portion control, etc. Now, every time I tell him that I lost another pound, he said he found it on him! He is now talking about starting this after seeing how easy it is for me.

Next week, I will do my measurements again to see if I've lost any more inches.

But right now, there is french toast calling my name! So please excuse me.

I always love it when I find people who actually enjoy this new way of eating. And isn't it awesome how easy it actually is AND you get a cheat day? It's like win-win in my opinion! Keep it up! Don't get discouraged, especially when it comes to that time of the month(which likes to stall the progress a bit, but keep on it and it will come off the next week!)

I wish others would see it that way. I got some of my friends interested in it, but all I hear is whining/complaining. It's very disheartening, but I do realize this lifestyle is not for everyone....but it's hard to see myself eating any other way. I'm totally satisfied if I ate this way all the time. :)

Keep going strong!!

    Thank you for your kind words. I agree with everything you said!

    After carbing it up all day yesterday, I was expecting to see a 3-5 lb weight gain. NOT THE CASE! I only gained 2 lbs. YAY! Now, back to the SCD. And I'm glad, because I felt like crap yesterday! Ick! Again, thank you for the encouragement!

    WOO 2 lbs! :) That's great! Everyone will have different gains. I know some people to gain like upwards of like 7-10 lbs after cheat day, but they lose it all by midweek(Wed/Thu) It's typical to see a big loss or so for the first few weeks, then it tapers off and becomes more like 2-3 lb on average. :) There was one week I lost 6 :) and still others where I lose like 4 or so....it varies and depends on monthly visitor/ovulation timing at least for me. :) Keep it up!

mmg, Amazing!

Stay tuned, it changes into a way of life after some weeks.

In half a years time, you'll be walking faster than the dog ;-)

    Thank you, Charley! I hope once I get more of this weight off that I can walk faster than our uber-ambitious pup! Lol. I forgot to mention the great results with my resting heart rate. It went from 92 to 60! For me, that's GREAT! I am looking forward to seeing what the next week has in store.
