Weight Loss Update

Hear me squealing as I tell you I lost 10.4 lbs this week. I was very pleased. I have been surprised how easy this week has been. I really never feel physically hungry and I am fighting to deal with my emotional hunger. It has been a successful week. I have a dear friend meeting me at the gym every morning. She walks 30 min with me (which is all I can do right now per docs orders) and then she goes and actually sweats for her workout. The time has passed so quickly every day. It is fun for me to start finding new ways to hang out - rather than grabbing lunch or such we walk for 30 very fast minutes.
The nurse told me at my weigh in today to not expect a lot of weight loss the second week. She said your body kinda realizes week 2 that something is going on and tends to hold on to its stored fat. I wanted to get onto a Monday weigh in day anyway because that will motivate me to do well over the weekends when John is home. So I am going to just go for 11 days and then weigh in the that next Monday. So this will give me a longer stint to loose a little more weight.
Already I feel more energetic. I am super encouraged. Thanks for all the encouraging emails and comments I have gotten from you all.

Hey Amy! It's been so long since we've talked but I've kept up with you and your family through your blog (which is why I love blogging!) Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that all your honesty and your openness is encouraging and thought provoking. I especially enjoy your posts about parenting your boys and why you do what you do. And congratulations on your successful week! I hope we can see you all soon.
