I've been working out pretty regularly (5-6 times a week) since December. (I sure hope I stick with it for the rest of my life. I also hope that Betty Crocker doesn't throw me off again.) I've been watching and recording everything I eat too. It's beginning to pay off.
I decided to perform a little test last week and tried on a pair of pants I haven't fit in for a while. They not only fit, they were loose. Like, falling off loose. It gave me a very nice feeling indeed. I may still look like the Michelin man, but at least I do on a slightly smaller scale.
