I’ve hit the 10 pound mark. I’ve been on the diet for 3 weeks and 4 days now, so I think that’s pretty good! The weight loss has slowed a bit, but is steady. In the 25 days I’ve been on the new diet, I’ve only had three days where my morning weight was either slightly up or the same as the day before. Yeah, I’ll admit it. I’m one of those obsessive daily weighers. I will say though that on this diet it has been quite rewarding, and I don’t feel badly that I check in with the old scale every morning.
I do think it’s time to pick up the exercise pace a bit now though. My doctor recently gave me an inhaler, as he thinks it might help with exercise induced asthma. Tonight I’m going to try to speed up the treadmill a bit. I’ve been doing 3-1/2 miles per hour, and while I’ve never really wanted to be a runner, if I can increase that a little bit without feeling like my lungs will burst, it will be another small victory!
