I am not having much success noticing a drop in the scale - BUT, I haven't been able to climb the stairs in my house without getting winded since we moved in. First due to pregnancy and now because I was out of shape, one simple flight of stairs about killed me.
Today I noticed I flew up and down the stairs several times with a thirty pound toddler in my arms and it was NOTHING! I could breathe and didn't feel weak. I am so excited. I guess the cardio and strength training is paying off.
