May 30th, 2007

I was up yesterday by about 1.5 lbs, which was water. I ate like I should have, did some walking with my daughter, and drank my water. Today I'm back down that 1.5 plus another 2/10ths of a pound. I actually saw 175.8 on the scale this morning! I didn't think my ticker would accept anything but full or 1/2 lbs, but it does. So I've updated my ticker at the bottom of the page and my progress model at the right. It's not a huge loss.. but I'll take it! Just for fun I had it calculate my body fat again. It said I was down another 1/2% and my water % is up. So I may be looking at another whoosh once the water is gone.

I just read a fascinating article about what happens to fat cells and why they hold water before a big loss. I'll find it again and share it here.

If the way I am losing holds true, I should weigh approx. 166 by my anniversary on June 15th and approx. 139 by the get together in July. Wouldn't that be awesome?!? I'd be only 4 lbs from goal! Let's hope and pray this pace continues.

I've found some interesting articles that I'd like to share. I was working on some ideas I had about low-carbing on a budget, but it seems to be the subject of several other blogs right now. I guess I'll wait on this one. I don't want to bore you with the same stuff you've been reading everywhere else.

Ok.. off to fix lunch and then work on one of those articles I just mentioned. I'll be back later to post it.

Way to go! I was going to join the kimkins program just to see what it was about. She is up to $60.00.Can't see that kind of money. Guess she has gone big business. I am really glad it is working for you!

Thanks Tess! Kimmer just upgraded the site due to overwhelming amounts of traffic and spent quite a bit of money, so I guess that's why she raised the price. With all the media coverage her diet is getting, I wouldn't be surprised to see lots of "big business" things going on with her diet in the next year or so.
