Default First 5 pounds and a comment!!

So I just started my committed diet and exercise plan a few weeks ago. I started at 180.5 and this morning I was 175.5! I had hoped for it to take less than 3 weeks, BUT last week I was working a band camp (yes I'm a marching band geek) and we had to eat dining hall food so though we were active I'm sure I didn't lose any then.

This morning when I walked past my boyfriend he asked me to turn to the side. I did and he said, "Wow! You can really tell that whatever you've been doing is working. You have less back fat!"

Now though I highly doubt a 5 pound loss would really show in my back, it was sweet and made me feel good nonetheless. Here's to keeping it up! :-)

Congrats on keeping it up and not losing hope! Slow and steady, eh? Don't give up and keep at it!

It's been almost a decade of being food-conscious. The most important things I've learned are persistence and self-forgiveness.

ummmm, hun if A GUY notices it, it's real. My SO can't even tell I've lost 20 lbs. He would never make a comment like that if he didn't mean it! Guys are so non-detail oriented for the most part. (It takes them forever to notice a hair cut??)
