Never been a dieter...

So I have never really been a person that has dieted. I usually eat what I want and exercise as often as I can. I think growing up playing soccer 6 days a week I didn't really have to worry about, and so when I stopped playing soccer, not a whole lot changed. The problem was I still was eating what I wanted and exercising less than I was when I was playing soccer full time... So after several years of that I think it took a little toll on me. Work hired these new nutritionists to come in once a week and do meal/training plans for people. So I took the opportunity to see them. This week is my fourth week and the results are amazing. I have been so impressed with everything and am really excited about the results it has been producing. I see them every Tuesday morning, and today was like any other day. After four weeks of doing this I was seeing gradual decreases across the board in my numbers. I was feeling a little discouraged because people would always ask me if I was noticing any changes and to be honest I wasn't. So going into my meeting today I was a little bummed and almost had the feeling I might have put a few pounds. After talking with Danny we weighted and measured in and I am happy to report I was down all around. I have lost 10 lbs and the inches are coming off. My body fat has lowered 3% which is good progress. The whole program is doing a good job in helping me lower by body fat % and get toned. I eat 5 meals a day, three hours apart from each other and I really enjoy the food. It is actually really good meals and I have a lot of choices. Along with them planning my meals, they give me cardio and resistance training to. All of which are extremely easy and usually I do them in the family room while watching some TV shows. Anyway I am happy with how things are going and excited for more great progress to come....

That's great! You should do some before and after pictures, although there probably isn't much of a change because you weren't big to begin with!!
