I started many different methods last week and the results were disappointing at best. I believed that I would lose a significant amount of weight in that week and I didn't. 2.2 pounds, while something, is not what I would call stellar.
Did the plan fail? Did I not follow it properly? Was there some other reason?
Regardless of the reason, my expectations were not met. At that point, I had two choices. I could let it defeat me or I could go around. I considered throwing out the whole program and just having a pizza. Then the reality set in that one week does not make or break a successful program.
I did follow the plan. I ate well and according to the Meal Plan. I went to Zumba 4 times. I followed the February Challenge and did those work outs as well. I took Lean Mode pills as directed. If anything, I didn't eat enough and my body is reacting to all the extra exercise. There are a number of possibilities but the answer is definitely not eating like a crazy person. So, I didn't. I followed the plan today. I took a day to allow my body and my mind to rest. I reset my attitude.
Lesson of the day: Expectations need to be managed so they don't limit your success.
