i've lost 6 lbs in 6 days

lol. i would be worried more if i hadn't gained 5 lbs in a week before.

it is kinda a lot kinda fast tho. hmm...
i have been eating about 1500-1800 calories a day.. as opposed to my 2800 - 3500 calories a day.
it's like someone switched on my ability to control how i eat. it's very weird..
i'm believing more and more that it's the chemistry in your body that decides how you eat and how much you weigh... not that you're lazy, or lacking self-control. but it's probably different for each person how to control it.

but i dunno, we'll see if this weight-loss continues. it's hard for me to believe that an endorphin high could cause all this. (without drugs or intense exercise)

hmm. curiosity.

but on the good side, i'm feeling more self-confident and hot! yeah!

As a weight-loss veteran, let me say that some of those six pounds are lost oil from your fat cells. That's great! Some is most likely water, because your diet has shifted to something inspiring your body to hold less water in reserve. I tell you this so that if you stick to the same regimen and next week you 'gain' a pound, you'll perhaps know that you lost more oil, but regained some water.

and 6 lbs is fucking great.

Yes it is! Heck four pounds is fucking great! Sorry if I sounded like it wasn't.

lost oil from fat cells? I've never heard of that before, could you direct me to where I could read about this?

Ripresa, that's fantastic, congratulations.
