The scale has finally moved! I have lost more weight than can be explained away by taking off my belt, having my haircut or leaving my jewerly on the nightstand on the mornings of weigh-in. I have really lost a pound or two - and the momentum feels great. After all my blabbering about cutting back, giving up and self-control - all of which produced nothing - what, you ask, finally made the difference? Exercise. Or, to be more specific, walking 3 miles everyday. I've been walking 3 miles a day, 4-5 times a week for about 2 weeks now - and I'm finally making some progress!
