Below 150 on the scale for the first time in a long, long time. 149.5, to be exact, but my scale only gives 1/2 pound increments. My weight will probably bounce up again: it always does, especially after a heavy lifting day. And, tonight is New Year's Eve, and we'll be going to a friend's for dinner and another friend's to ring in the new year. Even so, it feels good to see evidence that I'm making progress.
I also "feel" leaner this week. I'm sure it's because I've been watching my diet and cutting calories and doing a mix of lifting and cardio. (Wow: a caloric deficit leading to weight loss? Who would have thunk it.)
