So I lost 3 pounds this week. I was a little disappointed (though I know in general that's a good number for a week) just because this diet is SO strict and so low calorie that I feel like it should be more. But the nurse said that after two big weeks, it was normal to have a lower week, and that I also am holding 2 lbs of water for some reason. So, still going good - I've lost 15 lbs in 3 weeks on the diet, and I'm 20 lbs under my pre-preggo weight! woot!

This week is going to be TOUGH!! We are up at my moms in Maine for the week and we are usually going out to eat, going out for ice cream, etc etc. Obviously, this is where all of my bad eating habits came from so to be back in the environment trying to stay strong is tough. I admit I am taking a whole phentermine (the appetite suppressant) instead of a half like I normally do each day. The nurse said that was ok until I felt I could fight the cravings on my own. But my mom is being really supportive and only bought healthy food at the store.

On a good note, I tried on a bridesmaids dress that I wore when Keller was 5 months old (and at the time someone had to zip it and almost couldn't, like really - I was freaking out right before the wedding). And I zipped it myself with ease and had a little room to spare

My goal by the next appointment is 5 pounds (since I went Wednesday and am not going back until next Friday). wish me luck!!
