Right, so I lost just under 1kg in February. Not quite the 2-3 I was aiming for, but better than nothing, yes? OK, let us focus on the positives.
People noticing! Friends and family members (those who knew and didn't know that I was trying to lose weight) have been commenting about how good I am looking
My bra is getting lose. I am thinking part is natural stretching, part is weight lost around the underbust area. I have gone from barely being able to do up the outside hooks to being able to do it up on the inside hooks
I have been strength training for a whole month! I am seeing more definition in my body, and am looking slimmer
I like my body. I actually do. I look down in the shower now, instead of being ashamed of what I see I am proud of what I have achieved so far
My clothes are fitting better. I wore a pair of pants today that I haven't worn since January 15th and they nearly fell off. I was pulling them up all day!
My tummy fat roll is shrinking, so I'm not uncomfortable sitting down
I should measure, but I am lazy!
I still have a long way to come, but I have come a long way too!
Tomorrow, my goals for March!

So, not as happy with my loss this month. I know what the problem is; I hit 5kg lost and then slacked off for 2 weeks. My fault. Next month my goal is to eat more fruits and veggies, since they went bye bye for a little while there.
On to the stats
Weight lost - 900g/2lb (This morning I weighed in at 82.4)
Lowest weight: 82.1
Exercise minutes - 860 minutes (I plan to squeeze in a 30 minute walk somewhere, anywhere, so that I can beat last month, which was 888)
Days exercised - 19-20/29
Average workout time - 45 minutes
So in short I am happy to be down 5kg total (I still say I am, even though this mornings weight in says 4.9kg), but not happy that I reached that goal in the first half of the month. So I just cruised for a couple of weeks and didn't lose anything.
My goal for next month is to be out of the 80's. That means a loss of 2.5kg in a month. I think I can do it, with a little more dedication and a little less chocolate. Thats not to say I won't be eating chocolate, because I will. I still believe that moderation is the key. It is when moderation gets overtaken by overindulging that we have a problem.
Wish me luck, and insert supportive comments below. Y'all know I need them right now.
P.S I plan to do a post of non-scale victories tonight, but for now I need to get my butt to work

This is what the Board of Trustees and my principal gave me to welcome me into the school. How freakin' sweet is that! I love them!
Also, my principal commented to the rest of the staff about my ability to talk and connect with the children. I love that. Connecting with the children is so important, and I am pleased that I am succeeding in that area.

I woke up this morning with an awesome sore throat. I chugged some water, took a throat lozenge and went back to sleep...For 4 hours. Right, my body obviously wanted some rest! I now have a headache and my throat is still sore. I found some yummy ice blocks at the supermarket
They are only 61 calories each, and they have chunks of real strawberries in them. I have had 3 today, to soothe my throat. I say they count as medication, fruit and fluid. So there.
I also had one of these for my lunch today
Took me back to my childhood. I used to eat these as an after school snack all the time when I was a teenager, and when I saw them in the supermarket they screamed comfort food. The calories were reasonable so I got them.
I promise I got real food at the supermarket too. I got some manderins, some nashi pears and half a rock melon so I can make a big fruit salad for my mum and I. We split it and take it to work for our snacks.
With this sickness I am going to try to keep up my exercise if I feel up to it. There may be an extra rest day this week, but that is OK. I cut my run down from 5k to 3k today, and after the first km I felt a lot better. I knew I would feel better if I just got out there and started.
I will leave you with a pictuer of my sexy boyfriend playing the sax last night.
The lighting is all funky because of the stage lights. I thought it made the photo look cool :)
