I whine and complain that my body doesn't respond to diet and exercise. It's not totally unfounded complaining. There was a time when my middle daughter was a baby, close to a year old, that I was exercising at least 3 hours a day between my treadmill and the gym. I was watching what I ate and the scale wouldn't budge. That's not the only time I've had this problem. But for this week at least I seem to have broken that pattern...and I hope my body keeps this up...I lost 3.3 pounds this week. That's right...3.3 in one week! Wahoo! I've run at least an hour a day for the past 9 days (I think), today will make 10 days! :) Four nights I did Zumba after the kids went to bed. And now I'm down 3.3 pounds. I'm seriously so excited! Fingers, toes and anything else I can cross are all crossed my body is finally doing what it's supposed to do when I work my rear off!
