Three-month progress update

It’s been three months since I started my weight loss journey and started working out with a personal trainer (herein referred to as Nicole). So far, my progress has been slow but steady! I’ve lost:

  • Six pounds
  • 3.7% body fat
  • 10 inches

Nicole says that clients typically experience slower progress during the first few months because your body is getting used to your new routine and developing muscle memory, but now I should see more changes happening quickly. I can see a big physical difference already and I feel healthier and stronger, so I’m very happy! I’m starting to love my body more and am allowing more time in my life for me.

In addition to working out and eating better, I have been prepping meals in advance (which in turn helps me eat better). For example, tonight I made about four day’s worth of breakfast, lunches, dinners, and snacks.  As the saying goes, if you fail to prepare, prepare to fail!
