I didn’t write last week on my diet because, of all days, the internet decided to not work and my sweet hubby (the computer guy) was at work. So I decided to write both weeks this week.

So of last week…at the beginning of week 3 I had lost 14 pounds. I had also lost 5 more inches. This was a total boost for me. I have to admit that I hate this diet, and it would probably go better if I liked it. It’s very difficult to fix a delicious looking meal for my family and then eat blah for myself. I realize that I haven’t been eating blah for a very long time which is why I look the way I do. That, however, does not make me like the diet, or get excited over losing 14 pounds in 14 days.

I’ve been tempted to quit a few times. What prevents me from doing so is realizing how much weight I have lost in such a short time. The daunting part is I have soooooooooo much weight to lose that I don’t see a light at the end of the tunnel. Maybe that’s why at the start of week 4 I’ve not lost my pound a day.

Now here we are in week 4 and I have lost a total of 16 pounds and 1 ½ more inches. This is great, right? It seems strange to me that I’m not excited about this. What other diet could I do and lose this much weight so quickly? 21 days and 16 pounds….can’t shake a stick at that, huh?

This puts me at the half-way mark. Do I continue? Do I still hope for a total of 40 pounds? Do I hope for 32 pounds?

I will continue because I’m not a quitter. I will try to have a better attitude about it because I have to admit that the last 21 days have gone by rather quickly.
My friends are done and onto the next stage and they look great. Plus they get to eat cheese now. :o)

The crazy thing is my husband has "accidentally" lost 8 pounds. How does one lose 8 pounds by accident?
