Dawn and Marlene have both commented on my loss of 9lbs - thank you both. Dawn....9lbs is nothing really to me, hardly notice the difference and will explain why in a minute. Marlene, 2lbs off is really good, well done.
I'm a big girl, as in I have stones (about 4 of them) not just pounds to lose, so even a big initial loss of 9lbs isn't really that noticeable just yet. The bigger you are, the more weight you tend to lose in the initial couple of weeks.....and it's mostly water anyway (I've been peeing for England this past week!!). The loss will steady off very quickly, I'm sure.....that kind of loss isn't healthy or sustainable over a period of time! I'm expecting it to be more like a pound or two per week within the next couple of weeks, which will be fine.
As I've said before, whilst the weight loss is gratifying, it's reducing my blood glucose to normal levels and keeping them there, and thus being able to come off my diabetes medication that's the most important thing to me.
