On January 31st, I was 290.4, this morning I was 286.4, that is a 4 pound loss for the month! It is modest, but I am happy with it since one of those weeks was a candyfest.
Here are the measurements:
I was looking at my last wrap up post and noticed I made goals and then didn't look at them again... Lets see how I did.
It is a short month so I want to keep it reasonable. Just 5 pounds from my lowest January weight of 288.6 - so I will be happy as a clam at 283. If I work hard enough, maybe I will even break into the 270's. That would be great!
Oh me and my ambition with no follow through... I missed the mark by 3.4 pounds.
I'd like to be solidly back in the 22/2X size range. Most of my clothes are in that size but about 50% are too tight for the moment, and I was gifted some 3X sizes at Christmas, so I should be covered (literally, lol) with enough clothes to not need to get anything bigger (or smaller) for this month and likely next.
I haven't gone through and tried on my clothes to know for sure how everything is fitting, but I feel more or less the same size as a month ago.
HOWEVER - I am wearing the same shirt today as I was during my first weigh-in:
I can see a teeny bit of progress I think.
Move. I need to add activity to my routine. I know it will help the results move along and help my body get back into a nicer shape even if the scale doesn't move much.
Haven't gotten activity in, but it is 100% happening in March.
I can't be mad at you, February!
Keep my Lenten sacrifices of not eating pizza at all and forgoing desserts during the week. I know this will be helpful in my weight loss efforts
Exercise 4 times per week. I am leaving my options open whether to get on the rower, do some youtube yoga, swing the kettle bell. Time to get moving!
I really want to challenge myself and am setting a goal to weigh 279 or less by the end of next month. I have been losing about a pound a week, and I realize 7.4 pounds is nearly double. I haven't been 'trying' very hard either, so to mix things up I want to really focus and be disciplined. I won't be crushed if I don't hit the goal, but I think if I do everything (mostly) right, I can do a lot better than a pound a week.
Go through my clothing and find what is fitting and not. Donate what I don't want.
Review the goals weekly and not only on March 31.
