Heart Rate Test: Let's just say my heart rate is happier now than 5 weeks ago.

Thoughts: I don't know. There were a couple of ladies there in similar circumstances. In fact, one who weighed more than me only lost a pound and didn't lose much for inches. Discouraged? Slightly. I also talked to a girl who did this in the fall and she said the first five weeks she only lost 4 pounds and the second 5 weeks she lost 10. The guy who runs the place said everyone's body is different and reacts differently.

So, here's to the next five weeks!


  1. Any loss is a good loss! Keep up the hard work!

  2. Keep at it!! I'm cheering you on and hoping you see some great results.
