Default Optifast - giving it a try

Tonight was my second meeting and second weigh in. I lost 1 lb. I was hoping for more but I'll take the pound.

One thing I did different was to cut a few more calories thinking I would lose more weight. Instead of 1250 calories per day (which they recommend) I was consuming about 900 caleries per day. It appears that didn't work. What I was told tonight was that because my calories were so low my metabolism slowed down. The Leader encouraged me to consume 1250 calories per day (3 Optifast products per day plus a regular low fat meal with a total of 1250 cal per day).

This week I'll go back to consuming 1250 calories a day and see if the loss picks up. I'm not hungry on this diet and I think the shakes and bars taste good.

So far so good
