Noticing some changes

I have been following the Core program since Saturday and i am noticing some definate differences in my body. I am hoping they will mean a weight loss this week, but I will patiently wait to see. Some of the things are

I feel warm to the touch. At first i thought I might have a fever, but it is not. I think it might be that my metabolism is kicking itself up and i am working better , even when at rest.

I feel calmer. It feels as if some unseen, unperccived thing has released a strong grip from my shoulders and that my muscles are free to do what they want to do. Hard to explain, but it is a definite difference.

I am eating less and feeling a lot more satisfaction. Yesterday evening i decided to count the points I had eaten according to Flex points. My current level is 27, and yesterday I earned 4 activity points, so if following flex I would have eaten 31 points. But in actuality, choosing Core foods, I only consumed 24 and was definitely comfortable.

I am sleeping better. More deeply , less times waking up. It is like my joints are more comfortable or something.

I am looking forward to seeing what the scale says on Saturday !

How awesome! I guess what they say is true - if you're good to your body, then it will be good to you! Maybe yours just needed a little less processed foods. I can't wait to go shopping tomorrow so I can start. I hope my results are as good as yours! :o)

It seems for me the biggest difference is that on Core I am eating way less grains and sugars.No more Fiber one bars, no bread whatsoever and only plain yogert hat I add in my own Splenda and fruit and now only sugar free fat free puddings. Back when I lost 110 pounds those were things that I did as well. It also helped me to finally get pregnant. I think the PCOS is a huge factor with how it works for me. I am really excited to see what Mister Scale has to say on Saturday. I hope it treats you just as well with the switch !!
