I've run my guts out the last four months but only have a four pound weight-loss to show for it. To put things in perspective, that included six pounds lost in January when I had the flu. Huh. I'm sure it's because I gained muscle. :)
I bought Jillian Michaels' book a long time ago and pledged to start this 30-day plan after the mini, so here I am. I've completed Day Two of the meals (modified a bit) and workouts. So far I've lived to tell about it, but I would do just about anything for a sweet tea tonight. No, no...be strong!
Jillian told me (and thousands of others) that I would see a noticeable difference in my clothes after week one, and a DRAMATIC difference in my body after the second week. Yes, sign me up for that! To hold myself accountable, I will be checking in each Tuesday with a report of inches and weight lost.
So far, I think the biggest difference is in the portion size and what I'm eating for breakfast. I usually eat Cheerios in a plastic cup as I drive to work. This morning, I choked down a cup of low-fat cottage cheese instead. Not terrible, but not overly appetizing at 6:30 a.m.
Tomorrow's a rest day...and I'm pretty happy about it.
