Improvement Notes Week 4:
-Lost 1.5 pounds this week!
Yay, I didn't think I was going to lose my pound this week. I had a rest day. I drank a 8-12 glasses of water per day. Weight bounced around each morning this week...was 135.5, staying at 135, then jumped to 137! But I knew the 137 was water. Then 133.5 today!
BMI week 1=25.9
BMI week 2=24.6
BMI week 3=24.7
BMI week 4=
Hopefully I'll see BMI progress too!
