Results already?

Ok, so I started a weight loss program this week. I joined the Metabolic Research Center and their Meta-Slim program. I have a professor who had success with the program, and while it is tough, it is do-able. Unlike others I have tried (Nutri-system, Weight Watchers) there is no boxed food, no counting. They give you a list of OK foods, tell you when to eat them, and you add in some supplements. Pretty simple.

I have already seen results from just my first week! I weighed in Friday and had lost 5.3 pounds! They tell me that I should expect (if I stick to the program) to lose 2-5 pounds per week. I did a LOT of exercise this week, so I think on top of their program, I just worked some of it off. But either way, I am motivated to do this.

I feel like I’ve always been on a diet. Even when I think back to my “skinny days” in Jr. High, I remember wanting to lose weight. I am tired of fighting it. And also, if you remember, I posted about finding out I have high blood sugar and am pre-diabetic. I MUST lose some of this weight because I want to be healthy. Forget about skinny. I am happy with myself and have high self-esteem now. I could care less about the physical, I am doing this for my health. I don’t want a chronic life-altering disease like Diabetes, so I’m fighting.

It will be a tough 24 weeks, but I’m going to do my best. And so far, so good. I mean, I can’t ask for much more than results my first week.
