I'm about six weeks into the 30 day shred. I will admit that I have not been doing it every day because my knee and I do not agree about doing it every day. But I've still managed to make progress. I'm down 3 pounds. Which I'm happy with, it puts me back into a healthy BMI range. Still two more pounds to go there. And, I've lost 14.5 inches. And a good chunk of that has come off of my waist which apparently is a good thing according to Dr. Oz. (I DVR Oprah.) Apparently the measurement around your belly button should be less than half your height. I have about three inches to go there. But I'm much closer than the original 7.5 inches that I was trying to lose there. I'm also starting to get to the point where I'm between sizes. It doesn't make a ton of sense to me - but I bought a pair of jeans yesterday and they're almost too big. So I'm probably going to need to get them altered. Or try to shrink them in the dryer. I think I'd rather get them altered as option B doesn't always end well.

And I tried sushi for the first time last night. I didn't hate it. I didn't love it. It was there. It's one of those things that if people say, "We're going for sushi, do you want to come?" I'll go, but I'm probably not going to get it to go on my own. Our waiter was hilarious and the mai-tai martinis were great.

yay! told ya it was good. i'm down sizes too and can fit into 8's and 10's but really inbetween. After I had Baylen, I struggled in and around a size 14. It feels good to get compliments so often like, "You look so thin or you are so tiny!" bring it on! I just bought Jillian's Last Chance Workout DVD and am excited to test it out. I think there's more weight loss like if you follow the diet plan she asks you to also, but really it's about losing inches and gaining GOOD muscle.
