I lost 0.4 lbs this week. Not a lot, but it's going in the right direction, so I'm happy. After losing 7 pounds in 2 weeks I was expecting my weight loss to slow down a bit. I got in 5 solid workout this week: 2 ballet classes, 2 tennis matches, and a swim.

As far as diet goes, I've been working hard to get 5 servings of fruits and veggies every day. I've been doing well with this, and I already notice the difference in how I feel. I have more energy, and just feel generally better, despite the fact that the rest of my diet isn't perfect. My only problem is that I find myself thinking about food frequently. I have been counting calories and getting ~2,000 calories a day, so I think I'm getting plenty to eat. But, I spend so much time thinking about eating. I'm hoping this will go away as I get used to my new eating habits and settle into a routing. Has this happened to you? Any tips?

  1. I know it's not a lot but at least it is a loss! When I lost weight I didn't eat quite that many calories - probably about 1,500 or so. Remember that as your body weight drops so does your calorie requirement so maybe a small adjustment would be in line. Don't go too low though!
