This morning I was down 3.4 lbs!!
The scale and I are back to being friends-on. I had hoped to see a loss of 1 pound or more this week, after two weeks of smaller losses. I worked really hard this week, so I am satisfied that the scale is showing it.
In related news, this loss brings my total weight loss to 11.6 lbs, put me past my 5% goal, and dropped me into a new "decade" of weight!
I was running late this morning so I didn't take my measurements, but as of last week I've also lost 11.5 inches from all over my body.
It's finally starting to show. I feel slimmer. I definitely feel healthier - minus the head cold. I can walk farther and faster without effort. On the weekend I spent four hours with a photographer at work, climbing up and down stairs and didn't feel out of breath. I don't feel sluggish, I'm sleeping better. I'm very proud of the progress I've made so far, and totally motivated to keep going.
