As if I should've doubted.
I had a pivotal moment yesterday. I realized that only after a week of working out religiously and making healthy food choices that it's already working.
I live in an upstairs apartment. It used to be, after slowly climbing to the top of the stairs I'd be winded. Yesterday, I noticed after I'd jogged up and down the stairs twice in a row (to get things I'd forgotten) I wasn't winded. I didn't struggle to climb them -- I just jogged right up. It put a huge smile on my face.
My other shining moment yesterday: I spent the entire day with my parents, I went to McDonalds, Jack in the Box, and Applebees with them and I stayed within my caloric, carb, fat, and protein intake goals. I'm very proud of myself.
And (drum roll please) the moment we've all been waiting for. Did she hit her 2lb loss for the week? No. She didn't.
I lost 4 pounds! (booty shake) Bring it, Week Two!
