Cool! I kinda thought I had changed my metabolism and that was the reason why, but I didn't want to get my hopes up. It seems like I can go about two to three days without vigorous exercise, but I have to remain active. Like running errands where I'm in and out of my car or walking from store to store. I always make sure I do lots of walking at a pretty good pace, similar to what I do on the treadmill. That must be the after-burn I keep hearing about. I know i'm eating well because I stick to the SP diet plan or at least eat something comparable. I'm trying not to eat anything past 7pm, unless it has little to no carbs or fat.
Thank you so much for your insight and kind words ladies!! I'm so glad we're all on the same team.
