Well, after 2 weeks of doing 40 or more minutes of cardio (actually, only 2 out of 10 days was that little amount of cardio... the rest of the days were 60 to 77min of cardio)... I weighed myself and the scale said I'm 153lbs! woohoo! That's closer to my goal of being under 150... I am thinking I will wait a little while longer before I get weighed in and measured at Curves.
