woo hoo

so I stepped on the scale this morning for the first time in a week.
since starting my running program 3 weeks ago I have dropped 9 pounds.(this is the start of week 4)

I can mostly see it in my face and butt(the first two places I lose it)
I have had several people at school ask me if i have been losing weight and what I was doing.
My teacher has asked how I have lost so much so quickly. (like I said I lose it in my face first, so it gives the illusion of more)

So Here is my secret: I run for 30 minutes 3 times a week. I have been on the couch to 5k program, MON-WED-FRI. Basically i have been alternating running a certain amount of time with walking and each week i run just a little bit longer and walk a lettle less.
(If I decide to do more I go out and exercise the other 2 days and swim or walk the treadmill.)

I tweaked my diet just a little bit.
Basically i cut out all carbonated beverages, cut back on my sweets intake by 50% and eat slower and eat smaller portions. Oh and I take whole food concentrate vitamins.(horse pills that look and taste like grass, but are chock full of every single vitamin and mineral your body could ever need or want)
Thats it.
Pretty easy.

I feel really good about it and i am doing it the old fashioned way. Exercise, smarter eating habits, and no diet pills.
