Since Monday, I have lost 2.4 pounds. That's about half a pound per day.
I have stayed under the 1600-calorie mark every day, and also worked out each day.
I have had some moments of hunger, nothing terrible. I could keep this up, especially on ordinary days where I'm making all my own food.
I leave for a conference today and I'm going to have to be careful. I want to at least hold steady over the weekend.
