Tomorrow is the official weigh in day. Hmmm.... we'll see how that goes. I've been exercising whenever possible. I even managed to squeeze in some time after work to go to the gym before it closed for the day. I'm still madly in love with the elliptical machine. I feel as though I'm burning more calories with it than by just walking. I can go longer distances at a faster pace than by just walking alone. I think I push myself harder on it because it puts less strain on my knees and ankles. Not that I have joint problems or anything, but at this weight I don't want to create any or injure myself seriously.
Oh I need to mention that today is my one month anniversary on SP, and I was thinking about different things it has done for me so far. Not only have I lost 15 lbs (and perhaps more since my weekly weigh in is tomorrow) and some inches here and there, but I've noticed other non-measurable differences. I was noticing today that my skin feels a ton more moist and soft. Just a month ago my skin was very dry and flaky in spots. So I think I have not only drinking ample water to thank for that, but I've also been taking my multi-vitamin everyday and I think that it has been a crucial part as well. Another thing I've noticed is that at work I don't tire as easily (I'm a server at a busy restaurant) and I feel as though I'm moving faster without feeling like I've I need to take a break. Overall I feel so much healthier.
