I'm back on the scale, folks. Funny thing is, this entire 3-pound loss has happened since I started running with my friend about a week ago. Since meeting up with her I've felt a renewed commitment to my goals and have been very focused on the diet side of the equation.
This is one of those losses that I've been waiting for. 3 pounds in 5 days IS possible. It seems I've only been able to lose 1-2 pounds per week up until now. I know there is nothing wrong with that, but at my weight, I was expecting to have success more quickly - particularly at the beginning.
In order to keep track, I've decided that I need to set myself an ambitious goal. I've decided to jump on the bandwagon with Clyde's iTouch challenge and commit to losing 15 pounds by Labor Day. One month. 15 pounds. Doable?
