So far things are going well. I've had no problems with the diet restrictions. I weighed myself this morning and I now weigh 261.6 lbs. I have lost 17.2 lbs. I knew I would lose a big amount the first week but I didn't think it would be that much. I expect it to be a lot less from now on. On my bad day, Saturday I only had one bad meal and Rita's custard.
