I think it's working

I have to say, I was doubtful about the whole calorie slamfest thing, but now that I'm over a week into the new diet and exercise regime it's starting to look like it might be a success. I've been tracking every ounce of food and drink going into my system and logging every minute of exercise using the Livestrong app, while getting on the scales every day to watch it bounce up and down all over the place but trend in specific directions.

As warned by the nice nutritionist lady, the adjustment to what she called a "proper" diet resulted in an immediate weight gain of a little over six pounds. This, I'm assured, is the carb reserves coming back along with the associated water that they are suspended in. After five days, I topped out at what I can only describe as a weight I'm uncomfortable with, but miraculously it didn't stay up there for long. The trend now, thankfully, seems to be in a steady downward direction. It's a little early for jubilation at any kind of freefall fat melting dive, but I'm reasonably confident that things are working the way they should, and more comfortable with what's going on than I have been in a long while. There's more of a tangible feedback loop between going to the gym and the bathroom scale, and I'm back into the healthy habit of obsessing over food levels and nutritional values.

Any good exercise with good habit makes you good and feel good..., on the contrary...bad things (exercise) makes you bad...

Good vs. bad exercise..., good people choose good exercise..lol
