1 lb a Week Challenge - Week 1 results

Hey!! I lost 1.8 lbs as of the weigh in on Sat!
I am really enjoying the 500 calorie deficit concept. A few years ago I lost almost 20 pounds on the Alternate Day Diet. I do believe in the philosophy behind this way of eating, but I was really stuck in a rut, gaining back a lot of the weight I had lost. I blame most of this back slide on my broken ankle and my lazyiness with both fitness and eating habits during my healing period. But if I'm honest with myself, the weight has really creeped back due to my lack of commitment to the "every other day" low calorie program. I just found that I couldn't do it anymore. And I have always had success with intermitent fasting, even years ago, that is how I could lose weight and keep it off. Or maybe I just need a break. This 500 caloric deficit way of eating does not feel like dieting, and I love that for a change! I feel like I'm eating a ton of food every day! I did recalulate my deficit to reflect my recent loss and I'm hoping for another loss this week. I am back to working out daily and I think that should make a difference too.
So far, so good! Good luck to everyone else in this challenge or whatever approach you are using!
