congrats on what you've lost so far. I know we all want it off FAST, but to truly lose fat, it should be slow and steady, around one to two pounds a week.
If you have a cloth (or plastic) tape measure, I urge you to measure yourself right away. Waist, chest, hips, upper thighs, upper arms. Then you will have measurements to track, as getting smaller (and healthier!) is the ultimate goal. The scale can be a meanie to us
Measure once a month. Try hard not to hop on the scale when you're feeling hungry and "lighter"....if the scale doesn't show a loss, it's real easy to get discouraged at that point.
Your calorie counts are very sensible, and doing cardio is awesome! If you wanted to incorporate some weights in the future that would be very beneficial also.
Please don't get discouraged...keep on keepin' on! My first 10 pounds took almost 2 months....but then it accelerated after that. Everyone's different.
