Only a week

Do you think you can actually feel a difference in your body in only a week? I have been working out with the personal training group for only a week & I swear my body feels different. The scale said I lost 1.6 pounds this week but I must say my pants are feeling loser & I feel thinner. I think this class is really working. I have also been eating really healthy this week which I think is also helping. I think not going out to eat for a month is really going to help me.


I have been reading a lot of blogs this week that talk about binge eating. Not that I am glad other people go thru binge eating like I do but it is nice to see I am not the only one who struggles. I have been binge free for I think 3 weeks now & I feel great. I hesitate to say it but I don't even have the binge cravings. I look forward to my snacks of fruit & yogurt, & seeing how healthy I can eat. I think when I am in binge mode I just zone out, I don't even pay attention to what I am eating as long as it is getting shoveled in. I remember times when I would go to the store not sure If I wanted cookies or chocolate or both. I would not even wait till I got home most of the time & just scarf it down on the ride home. I hope I never go back to that way of binging. I am working hard to control it & I will succeed at it.

i started feeling different after only about 3 days when i started eating clean. it really makes you feel different. And a few REALLY great workouts also can make you feel different in a few days. The scale really IS just a number, and you have probably changed more than the scale says you did!! great job!

Yeh I think you can defo feel a difference in that time. This week I've started working out, my clothes feel just a little looser and also I'm getting more flexible and fitter. It's a great feeling isn't it?
Congrats on being binge free :D

I started noticing a loss in inches before the numbers on the scale became significant. So, yes, what you are saying makes total sense. And isn't it a great feeling?

You are kickin' booty!

I can tell a difference after a week. It's physical and mental in my opinion :)
