Okay, so I know I promised an update yesterday, but yesterday was a really BAD day. And I cheated. But like I said: it was a really bad day.
So, here's the progress so far: total lost: 8 lbs. Not as good as I would have hoped, but it is my 3rd round and I am starting lower than my first good round (a little higher than my 2nd round, but the same weight that I ended after cheating that whole 40 days). I haven't lost any weight for 3 days, but that's okay. I have lost a few inches total, but not a big enough difference to start jumping up and down. I'm hoping for some better progress next week.
I'm debating whether or not I want to only do 23 days now, or the full 49. I haven't filled all of my needles yet, and I really think that maybe this would be a good, quick jump start and then I could work out and eat diet-y food without being so strict. I don't know. Hubs wants me to do the full 49 days. I guess we'll see what happens. I still have a week to decide.
