I am on my way. I started week 7 yesterday and really do feel a difference. I noticed the other day at the gym how much stronger I have gotten. My legs don't burn after 3 min on the elliptical. I hated that machine! When I first started I was only able to do 6 minutes and now I am up to 40 and actually I feel energetic when I am done. My weight lifting is improving handling more weights and I am loving doing it. I actually look forward to my weight lifting days. I know we should not look to the scale for satisfaction and recognition but I am down 23 pounds. I know some have lost more in less time but I am happy with the progress especially as I feel muscles are being made and fueled. One of the trainers have been on vacation at the gym for the last 3 weeks he goes around to the other gyms and well I have not seen him. He originally signed me up at our gym and I saw him yesterday when I was signing up for the hydrobed massage time. He said "Wow" Yes "Wow" He then commented "You are losing" I told him of my progress and he said "fantastic but your body is definitely changing" then gave me the thumbs up. This made my day. Sometimes that is worth more than the power of a number on the scale.
