Day 2: Three days after appointment.

I woke up today with a pleasant surprise. I got on the scale just to see what was going on and to my surprise I'm 6 lbs. lighter! Gasp! Needless to say I was on the phone to my sister and mom very excited and they were screaming with me. I was nervous about being able to stick to the strict diet but after this I'm so motivated not to cheat.
I worked out with my oldest son, Evyn, with the Wii Active. He laughed right along with me and complained that the exercises were too hard. I found it was easier for me to motivate him and set a good example by pushing us through it. He's a good workout partner. Mommies always find a way to make things funner I don't know why I didn't think of this before. It made it so much easier for me to wade through it when I was busy joking with E and having fun.
If this diet continues to work positively it will be such a blessing in my life. I will be able to do the things that I want to do with my kids like hiking, and running in the yard to play tag. There have been so many times my youngest one has said, "Mommy please play tag with me." and I've had to turn him down because it was physically impossible for me to. For a parent it hurts for your child to want to play with you and you can't, especially when it's something like weight. I'm afraid I'm going to miss the years when my kids want to play with me.
I know there is some controversy over this diet with the injections and such. I've researched this for months, and have decided it's worth trying for me. If anyone is reading this and are interested research it, talk to your doctor, get educated. It isn't for everyone.
Thanks for the positive feedback from family and friends, your support helps so much.
