Thanks Michelle. Yes, I am so glad I started when I did. Losing 15 lbs more from this point seems very daunting....the original plan was to start at 155 on March 1, but glad that I was down to 140 by then. I just have no idea what I'm doing and I also really appreciate you suggesting I hire a trainer! Other than that, the cutting is what I expected. Temptations are rough, at different times more than others, but manageable. I haven't done anything that I'm not supposed to do, like skip workouts, eat extra (aside from a bit of lax measuring). What I didnt expect was to have a cheat meal, and I am very grateful for that
In addition, I forgot to mention that my coach told me that I'm not hauling enough on my cardio. My incline should be much higher as well as my speed. By the time I'm done I should be dying...didn't really understand that until he explained it to me.. cause the setting he showed me on the treadmill at his gym has a very low incline, he never told me to increase it, so I'm glad I clarified. I kicked my butt today at the gym and was sweating a ton.
