After four weeks of working my tail off, quite literally, I have lost a total of 7.4lbs since January 3rd.

I know that is not a lot of weight, but in reality I did not have a lot I wanted to lose. Because of my height and the way I am built any extra weight shows. I'm not tall and lean with a torso that goes for miles that is able to hide a few pounds. Nope. Every pound shows. 

What is amazing to me is that I have been trying for over a year to lose this same weight and in a mere four weeks it is nearly all gone.

My "tight" pant no longer stay up. I have nothing to wear, but in a good way. In order to keep my pants up I find I am walking as if I have just ridden bare back across Montana. My arms are toned. I am seeing a glimpse of a six pack, something I was sure I would never have in my life, and I feel strong and healthy.

I am so grateful to have this part of my life finally under control. It's an amazing and unfamiliar feeling to know that anything I have in my closet will fit. Or better yet, be even a little big.

I am KICKING myself for not taking a Before picture.

I will post a picture after the six weeks are over.

I have just started my 5th week.

I love that the work outs are usually less than 30 minutes and produce HUGE results. Even though $100 dollars is very expensive, it is worth every penny.

Hooray for almost meeting my goal!

arg! you should have measured your inches before then now and such. That's how I measure weight loss, cuz by working out you build muscle and muscle weighs more than fat... you know what I mean.
Anyway. Isn't it a crazy feeling to stand there and say "everything is too big" and doesn't fit right anymore. Then it is hard to "complain" about it to others because they give you a hard time about having such a "hard life" :) I trust you know what I am talking about and if you want to "discuss" the "trials" of no clothes, call me. or just come over. :)

Yes, a before picture would have been awesome, but I'm so happy for you, Em! It's so great to feel good about yourself! You might need to just send me a picture now, since I don't get to see the day-by-day results! Hooray for you!

I'm so happy you have done so well. So next week you find out if you get to keep your $50? Stay proud daughter.
