Hi, Michelle and Pam! Congrats to all on your progress so far!

Since it's been almost a week, I thought I'd check in with some observations:

Running is going well, doing 3 mi./day consistently. A couple times I've come up short on energy, but I still go 3 miles, just with some walk breaks as needed.

Energy levels, focus and sleep schedule have been completely erratic, though. Losing weight always makes me a bit tired overall even if I'm not hungry. My calorie counts were all over the place the first few days too, but I'm getting more consistent and less hungry. I've tended to eat too much sugar (specifically candy), but have still stayed near my calorie goals most days and have lost about a pound; perhaps reducing sugar will help somewhat with the fatigue.

In any case, I'm glad to be headed in the right direction and looking forward to more positive results! How's everyone else doing?
