WLC - Week 1 update

Thursday, December 04, 2008

Hello cheerleaders,

I'm happy to report that even though my first week coincided with Thanksgiving, I was able to lose 5 pounds! I was able to skip the appetizers and dessert. I only had seconds on turkey and sweet potatoes (it was really hard not to). Plus, I only had two sips of wine and mostly drank water all day.

So, now I get to go and purchase my first set of rewards. The best part is that I got gift certificates to Target and Sports Authority for my birthday. So, I get to treat myself to new items and I don't have to take any money out of my pocket. Woo hoo!

This is actually the second week of the 12 week challenge, but I just joined last week (as I already mentioned). In the taped recording of the fisrt conference call, they mostly discussed the rules for the challenge and why drinking a 1/2 ounce per pound of water is good for you. Flush, flush, flush - cleanse, cleanse, cleanse.

During my conference call last week two things stood out for me. One, I learned that woman should have 75 grams of protein a day and two, that most of it should come from plant protein.

I missed last nights conference call so I'll have to listen to it when I get a chance. I'll let you know what I missed.

Anyway, just wanted to share my good news. Say a prayer for me that I can keep this up.

    Terrific!!! You're off to a great start!
    I think half an ounce of water a pound sounds more reasonable than what I hear some people say a whole ounce of water a pound. That's a LOT of water for someone like me! LOL!! I drink as much as I can without floating away. That seems to work for me.

    Keep up the terrific work!!!!
