§ Official weighing scale will be kept during the week

My initial weight was 178.4 lbs.

During the first week I lost 5.2 lbs, and then another 1.6 lbs the next. But the following week, Feb. 1, I gained 2 lbs!!! Huhuhu…

Today I weighed 173 lbs, a loss of 0.6 lbs from last week and a total of 5.4 lbs loss from the beginning.

I have to lose weight of at least 10% of my initial weight, which means I have to lose at least 17.8 lbs.

I only have 8 weeks to go… What must I do????

Ok, so I have not been really serious about this matter, especially with my exercise.

I’ve only been doing at least one brisk walking and at most three brisk walking a week. So it does not really do me any good.

I have to make a diet and exercise plan and stick to it!

I will also try the “Three Day Diet” and see if it will work.

Well, so much of wanting to Lose Weight!!! Hehehe,,

Wish me Luck!!
