Wave One, Day Seven

As of this morning, I've lost five pounds.

Over the last couple of days, I've spent far less time being very hungry.

This is why I love the Sonoma Diet, and this brutal wave one. It teaches you that you have enormous reserves of willpower (see Day Two, the macaron incident); it reminds you that being hungry is not something that requires emergency intervention (though it may cause a few fights); and finally, it works. I've lost five pounds. In less than a week. Now, I know I won't lose much more weight in next few days, and I might even hit a plateau, but having these solid initial results will, I hope, carry me through to the finish line: 10 more pounds, 7 more weeks.
