I have been going crazy trying to stay away from the scale and just focusing on eating better and working out. Well, this morning I gave in to the scale and I was happy to see that I was down almost 4 lbs! Yay!!! I will reach my next goal, I just know it!!! ALSO... I hired a personal trainer/girlfriend of mine to help me reach my goals and kick start my metabolism. I'm so excited. I start the workout tomorrow and get my diet plan on Sunday! Yipee!!!! I cant wait! 2009 is starting out GREAT!
