The 8 Week Miracle

When I was doing Body for Life, there was a frequently discussed phenomenon called the 8 week miracle. For some women, their weight barely moves for the first 6-7 weeks and then around week 8 they drop weight like crazy.

When I was in contest prep last year, the same thing happened. I lost a couple of kilos and then got stuck for weeks. It was at week 7 that I finally had a huge drop.

The problem with having a body like mine, is that left to my own devices, a diet that does nothing much for 6-7 weeks makes me think it is not working so I abandon it and move on to something else. I was so dangerously close to that point on Saturday. Thank God I didn't give in or I never would have seen a 400g drop this morning. Anything could happen tomorrow, but I am fairly certain that I am finally on my way.
