Yesterday was a great day here. Drank more water, did 2 miles on the bike, an hour of housework, and got out of the house for awhile. It was so nice to get dressed and not have tight pants! It'll be a little while before I drop down a size, but that's alright. In the meantime I won't worry about splitting the seat of my pants and have prepared a bag to go to charity that will be filled with clothing that no longer fits me.
My weight loss is happening pretty fast, down 6 pounds in less than a week. Most is undoubtedly water weight and should level off soon for a slower, steady weight loss. Something that's already disappeared is the rock hard upper belly that I'd developed the past few years. I feel like a deflating balloon!
As far as sleeping patterns, I go to bed when I get tired around midnight, get up without an alarm clock and seem to average about 7 hours a night. To facilitate sleeping a little longer each night I'll focus on working out and playing a little harder each day.
