I got sort of a compliment at the gym yesterday. As I passed through the weight room to the cardio room I saw a guy I see at the gym a lot and he winked at me two or three times. :) No one ever flirted with me when I was heavy, but now that I'm a normal weight and the guys see me working out so hard with the weights, they flirt with me. :)

My butt is sore from yesterday's lower body workout. Didn't do anything today. I tried to sleep in until the jackhammer started downstairs. :-p I walked from the train station to work, stopping at WalMart on the way - 30 minutes. I'm ready for an awesome April now that I have the binge out of my system. I've been burning off the excess carbs and pounding the water.

Tomorrow I hope to go back to the gym and do upper body.

I wanted to share a "before and after" photo with you. The first photo was taken May of 2004. I'd been on Atkins about 2 months at that time. The second was taken last Saturday wearing the same dress. You can really see the difference in how I fill out the dress in the first photo, but not in the second. Click the photo to see the full size.
