Those first 8 pounds

It is amazing how, when you first start a diet, you lose eight pounds in that first week!  But then, you stay even, lose only a small amount or even gain weight in the second week.  What's going on?
Well, you didn't really lose eight pounds of fat in that first week.  Most of your weight loss was in water weight .  That's why many diets tell you to limit your soda intake and your salt intake - they want you to lose those eight pounds and think their diet it really great!.
The problem of course is what happens if you have a moderate or bad week?  Well, of course those water loss eight pounds come back on just as fast as they came off.
Knowing this is a step towards gaining that Losing Attitude.  Weight loss is a marathon, not a sprint!
