Wow, Big Results During Interim Challenge.

Wow, this is crazy (but I'm not complaining).

I've lost 5.5 pounds in 5 days!

I guess my body was really ready for me to step up the exercise (even though I'm certainly not doing anything even slightly extreme).

Still having Shakeology for breakfast and lunch, which is excellent, nutrition and protein-wise, and last night had a huge Easter dinner.

If this is what it's like during the interim stage, what will happen to my weight when I start P90X? Need to think about that because a big part of the P90X strategy is to build muscle, and muscle weighs more than fat. Of course I still have ample extra middle weight to lose (I'm guessing another 15-18 pounds in just that area alone!), so I'm not concerned, but am getting ready for a diet shift to much more protein when I start intense exercise in 5 days.

In the meantime, I'm happy to be seeing less of myself
