It's still working. :-)
This week I've been down a little every day. I'm now at almost 12.5 pounds off in a little over two weeks. I'm almost to the pre-Tulum weight from last year. And I'm feeling so good and successful that I'm looking at keeping this up until I'm "done" (whatever that is...but it's definitely a wee bit below my June 2008 weight which was my lowest in at least 3 years...maybe more).
I was talking with DB last night about all this (he's down nearly 20 lbs. in a little over 3 weeks!). It is so nice to see the scale go down every day (or almost). And it is so nice for us to be eating healthy together...on this program, we are sharing meal prep more than we ever have.
And now I'm looking at the week where my college buddy is coming to visit -- the time when I said I was going to be NOT perfect (i.e., I will drink). And I'm a little conflicted -- do I want a cocktail (yes!) more than I want to ensure that the scale continues to go down (hmmmm)? As always, the goal will be moderation. I have been so perfect on this program that it is a little scary to play with the chemistry (although alcohol IS allowed at this point). What I'm planning to do is an unscheduled "carb down" day tomorrow as well as the scheduled one on Friday. I hope that carries me through a cocktail or two over the weekend (when we also have a birthday party at our pad on Sunday for PD1). We know now that we can do parties without drinking...but we do miss it...we are just not the permanent teetotaler types. But we both realize we need to moderate...the beer definitely added to our weights...both of us.
I'm continuing to weigh every day to get the scientific data...it's sure nice when you see those numbers be where they should be! :-)
