Can I Make the Cut?

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, 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.

Keep up the good work! Anyone that can eat cottage cheese is admirable in my book. Yuck!

Nice Job Linds! :) you can do it! And do you have to do cottage cheese... cant you do boiled egg or something... those definitley more yummy (i dont eat the yokes though... yuck i hate the yokes of a boiled egg)... but anyway i thought that might be more appetizing :) Good luck and stay with it! :) Love and miss!

Ummm. I love the yolks. If I share a boiled egg with Maddie, the Amazing Barking Dog, I give her the white part.
