Hi Brittanylynne1421! Sounds like you are off to a great start!
1.6 lbs in 6 days is actually really great! Running is such a great way to get your cardio in and to also give you a wonderful sense of accomplishment. I would say that in order to keep on the way you have started is to realize that this is a life long journey, not something you are "just doing" until you get to your desired weight. It is essential for healthy eating and daily exercise to become a part of your lifestyle and not just something to shed fat. I think that is where many people "fall of the wagon" and gain back and then have to start over. The sooner you change this into your new life, the easier it will be to maintain and keep healthy! Also seriously having support is the most important thing, and 3FC has been great for that for me! Being held accountable is also really helpful, if only you know that you want to work out 5x a week then you might be tempted to skip a day to do something else. So make sure you keep that up. It sounds like you have a good exercise regime going right now, but there are a lot of options there too! I am doing Insanity right now which has been AMAZING! Think Boot Camp on crack lol! I am a runner (just had a baby and ran my last half marathon 2 months preggo) and this is WAY harder than any run I have ever done I swear! Boot camps, cycling classes, home DVDs are all great ways to give you more fun and interesting things to do for workouts! Keep up the hard work and stay positive and keep posting, you will meet your goal...GOOD LUCK!
