With the plan you have, you will definitely see progress soon! Healthy eating and exercise is actually the very best way to lose. Not the fastest necessarily but the way that I think can last a lifetime unlike some of the fad diets where once you go off of them, you gain again. Getting in the habit of eating right is a change that can last a lifetime.
Just remember, there will be plenty of times you'll mess up but that's ok. If a craving gets the best of you and you give in...dont fret it, just immediately get back on track. That's the biggest change I've made. In the past, if I blew it, I'd say.."Oh well, might as well eat now..already blew it anyway".
Good luck! Hope you enjoy the site as much as I do.
