And now the moment you've all been waiting for ...
Today, as you may know, is the one-month mark on my "flight to be fit," as one reader put it. As such, today was the day I weighed-in at the Y on the Iron Man scale for my one-month progress report.
Drum roll, please ...
My one-month weight-loss is: 18 pounds!!! I lost 18 pounds in just one month, which is actually MORE than my last 500-calorie-per-day crazy diet fad. So, seriously people, even though I was one of those girls who rolled their eyes when someone said "Eat less and move more is the only surefire way to lose weight," I'm now a believer.
I feel like I should give an acceptance speech or something. I'd like to thank my mom who always believed I could do it, and my trainer, Jackie, who kicks my butt twice a week, and ... maybe I should save the speeches for when I hit my final goal.
Anyway, I'm away from the office this week, so I won't be posting again for a few days. But don't worry, I'm not going to go on a celebratory doughnut bender or anything.
