Wink Hi everyone!

Hi all,

I started my journey on Jan 23. 1.5 weeks in I weighed myself and was down 6 pounds! Since then, I have not weighed myself and I am now almost 3.5 weeks in! I'm very proud of myself for sticking to this for nearly a month already.
I avoid weighing myself because I am the impatient type, and it would hurt to not see progress... Anyways, I am probably down to 182 now (*my guess). I went from not being on a diet and eating everything I wanted - probably 2500-3000 calories per day, to eating around 1200-1400 (depending on my burn for the day) and burning an additional 600 through exercise. I eat mostly fruits and veggies, protein, and occasionally eat whatever I want but only eat small portions of it so I stick with my calorie count.
I am so impatient and I know it is unreasonable, but I haven't seen results yet, and it is frustrating! I can't wait to weigh myself at the one month mark!

Any advice is welcomed!

I'm not sure what kind of advice you're looking for.

You say you haven't seen any results, but were down 6 pounds in the first couple weeks?

Maybe a month is too long...maybe two weeks would be better. You can always try to see if your clothes fit differently or try taking measurements.

And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
