What do you know!?

I weighed myself and measured my body fat percentage when I began Slim in 6 last week. Ryan had to help me because I couldn't figure out how to work the stupid scale. Helping meant he had to be standing right by me while I did it so he could make sure I did it right. Nice. It wasn't at all embarrassing or anything.

I was NOT happy with the numbers I saw. Gross. I could have consoled myself with a donut, but I didn't. Instead, I let them motivate me and I've been working hard. Really hard and every day. I know. Amazing. I've been producing real, actual sweat when I work out and I am already seeing results.

I weighed myself again this morning and am already down 3 pounds and have lowered my body fat percentage by 1.5%. I know that weight can fluctuate up or down a couple of pounds from day to day, but it's only gone down since I started. I know this because I've weighed myself almost every day since I started. There's been no fluctuation. It's only been dropping at a rate of about a pound every couple of days. I started on Wednesday, Friday I was down 1, Monday another 1 and today another 1. I don't know if this is the normal, average amount. I'm sure it has to slow down at some point. I hope it doesn't. ☺ Losing 1 pound every other day would be amazing.

I hate to say it, but sensible eating and regular exercise really are the answers to weight loss and healthy living. Great. Guess I'll have to stick with it if I want to maintain.

It doesn't slow down any time soon so if you can stick with it you are in for a happy suprise! :) You are motivating me to start slim in 6 again.

AWESOME!! I am trying to get back into the swing of things but I can only exercise for 10-15 minutes a day--otherwise I have a bleeding problem and it's not pretty. I'm sure that I will be back to full strength in a month or 2 but as you know patience is NOT one of my strong suits!!

This is awesome! I don't weigh myself, ever, but I've been working out a lot since January. I'm not sure it's really done anything.

It's true :) Congratulations, though! Stick with it and you'll continue to feel amazing. Exercising get's easier as you go along, too. I'm excited to hear more!

AWESOME. That's actually about right as far as what is healthy to lose each week. And there is nothing like those numbers getting smaller to motivate you to keep going. Unfortunately, my scale has been stuck for a long time. :)

That is really great! Right now I'd be happy with a pound or two a week. That would be sweet.
