It has been a week since I posted an update on the weight loss. All of the side effects have pretty much disappeared. Although the weight loss has slowed, only lost 1 pound this last week, but admittedly I have not upped my activity level & we went out to eat a few times in the last week.
It has been a month this saturday. I didn't take measurements in the beginning, but did make a note of them earlier this week. Even though the scale isn't moving as much as I would like, my clothes are a little looser and I have had numerous comments asking if I lost weight. So that is all good!
