Today was an important milestone: I'm down 20 pounds from my starting weight, about 14 of which is since starting the 20/20 Lifestyles program proper a mere month ago. That seems like quite a lot to me. I can feel the difference a little bit more each day, though I certainly don't feel 20 pounds lighter. I can see a change in my face.
It's certainly been a lot of work (and money), but it seems to have been worth it so far. It's still twenty weeks until I'm done with everything, so I've got a lot of time to get used to this and think about how I'm going to adjust my life to stay in shape once everything is over. I'll freely admit that that thought scares me a little. I don't know how different I'll be in five more months. But I'm interested in finding out.
