Today is day 12. Up to this point, I've only focused on the exercise, not on my food intake. I also haven't been weighing myself because I don't expect a change until I tighten up my eating a bit more--no reason to cause unnecessary distress, right? But this morning, I thought I'd check it out. I was curious.
When I first looked at the results, I thought I was up 3 pounds. I have to admit I was a little disappointed, but not terribly surprised. I've been doing the same workout since January 1st, and it's a ton easier now, I know I've built muscle. Cue the mantra: Muscle weighs more than fat. Then I realized the number in the tens column changed too. (I was only looking at the ones column) As of today, I'm down 7 pounds! A very pleasant surprise indeed.
