Weigh In

Yesterday was my second weigh in, and I've lost a total of 4 pounds! For some reason this time it's much easier than it has been in the past. I'm choosing healthful food that is delicious without feeling like I'm giving up anything. This week I've been having a great time tweaking a double chocolate biscotti recipe. Not a bad cookie yet!

I got into the pool this morning and had so much energy. Thirty-five minutes flew by! Some days I feel like I can't remember how to swim, but today, I felt like a champion. I love days when a work out feels so good. I had 3 good swims this week, and tomorrow, a run. Bill is laughing that his wife, who usually only exercises under duress, has become the sporty one.

Great work, Rachel! WTG!!

And so cool that you are enjoying your swimming - its fun feeling "sporty", isn't it?

Terrific, Rachel!

I am so glad you are feeling strong. I can't imagine swimming for 35 min.. I used to try laps but never could get the hang of it. I may try again when the pool opens this summer- you are motivating me!

That is so great the pounds are coming off naturally.. and you are just eating what feels right. Way to go!
