Week 6 Phase 2 Update

I FINALLY broke through my plateau!!!!!  I lost a pound this last week and am at a total loss of 21 pounds.  One of the things I find most interesting is that people don’t say, “Wow, you have lost a lot of weight!”, they are saying “You look pretty in that color.” or “You are looking so great right now.” – nothing about my weight loss.  I  am thinking that is a good thing!  I think that overall, from about a year ago when my health bottomed out, that I am looking, and, best of all FEELING, so much better.  I can’t imagine NOT getting up early and getting in my workout and cardio.  My husband and I were both saying how surprised we are at how much strength we have gained through consistent workouts.  We could NEVER have imagined doing some of the exercises we are doing now when we first started.  In fact, since I have the books for all four phases, sometimes I will look ahead at the exercises and think – there is no way I can do that!  BUT, here we are – kicking butt (our own)!  Here’s to another great week!
