So it's been a week of logging my calories and exercise on MyFitnessPal. I've met some new buddies, and I've learned a lot. Like how it really does hold you accountable and make you think twice when you're logging in everything you eat. There were choices I made because I knew I didn't have the calories to spare - that's something that wouldn't have happened before.

I gotta say, when you hear it on The Biggest Loser - "The ones who log what they eat are the ones who will lose the most" - it's easy to think "Yeah, but you're also doing nothing but working out..." and sort of brush it off. But it's really true. The results speak for themselves...

Last week's numbers:
weight - 195.6
body fat - 35.7%
water - 46.7%
bone density - 6.7%
BMI - 31.4

Today's numbers:
weight - 191.6
body fat - 35.3%
water - 47.1%
bone density - 6.6%
BMI - 30.8

Woohoo!!! I am 0.9 away from sliding into the merely "overweight" category with my BMI. For me that'll be a HUGE milestone!!!

Onward and downward!!

Yes, you read that right!!!

I ran 5K in under 40 minutes!!!!! Woot!!!!!

Even better? I ran a mile at 5mph!!!! I think I could have gone further, but I didn't want to push and injure myself.

I'm not going to hold myself to under 40 for the race on Sunday, but I'm also not going to complain if it happens. Ha!! (I looked at the results from last year, and the last person to finish did so in like an hour and 19 minutes. So I'm pretty sure I won't be last!)

But I'm psyched!!!!
