I am maintaining a 5 pound weight loss (my goal was to lose 10 lbs). I feel good about that & I feel well overall. I need to think of another way to shake up my eating & fitness routines, and drop some more weight.

I weigh myself on Tuesdays. My aim around January was to lose 10 lbs by May. I've lost 6.8 lbs. which is really very good. Given my stressed-out, polar vortex winter, I could have easily gained 6.8 lbs. Joining a new gym that I ENJOY going to certainly played a big role.

The inexplicable thing is that 4 lbs came off in the past month. The change-up in my fitness routine? Better emotional health since ending things with my BF? The addition of the eggwhites--lol?

My pants fit funny--as in roomy.

4 month: down 5 pounds. Having fun hiking in the spring woods again + my new high intensity strength-training regimen.

I just keep trying new things & some of them work for me. Winters come & I carb crave. Past winters I would buy boxes of excellent, small cookies (usually pricey)--I was usually satisfied with half a cookie, or just one. This winter I decided not to buy a box. While I occasionally enjoy a small baked treat outside of the house, I think I have successfully broken a habit at home. And my pants fits much better.

3.5 months: down 4.5 lbs. Now that the weather is improving, I'm mixing in some hikes with my gym time. Recently enjoyed dinners featuring sauteed garlic, steamed broccoli, walnuts & a squeeze of lemon juice. With a side of chicken sausage. Slow & steady & making progress!

Slow & steady . . . wins the race, I hope. Three months of eating more carefully & lotza gym time = 3.5 pounds down. Broke up with long-time BF yesterday. Thought about buying ice cream sandwiches to console myself, but opted for a $2 bottle of citrus-flavored sparkling water. And I had a great rowing workout! Staying strong!!!

Started walking yesterday where I live with a group walking for 1/2 hour. They're planning to do it on weekdays, so I'll try to get to most of them Hoping to lose more wt. At times,I blame it on taking insulin for gaining wt.

The last two weeks contained alot of after-hours work responsibilities. I tried to plan ahead with snacks, salads & healthy soups. I made it to the gym even if it was only for 25 minutes. Holding steady with my weight loss.
Keeping a minimalist fitness log has been very helpful. Keeping me on track for gym time!

Comment by Deborah on February 18, 2014 at 6:23am

After seven weeks of greater fitness efforts & dietary diligence (but not "a diet"), I've lost two pounds & an inch on my waist. It's said that slow weight loss is good, and this is slow!
One successful strategy is planning ahead for my exercise. If I leave the house in the morning with my gym gear packed
I am much more likely to work out after work.
I have been sleeping well & generally feeling very well.

Thanks Ahmad! Feeling really positive about my habits right now. A bit worried about some demands coming up at work derailing my schedule & efforts. Just trying to plan & avoid getting off track.
