Some Progress but nothing like expected.

I guess I might be the hardest woman to please
. I haven't had much luck on my weightless goal of 20 lbs; which started 4 weeks ago. As of Monday, I am down only 5 lbs, which I was hoping would be 10 lbs… guess I take what I can get. It is hard not seeing the results I want, when I know I can lose the weight, but then it would be reaching my goals the unhealthy way. I am very happy to report that even with all my sorrow and frustration at not losing more lbs; I have NOT purged or reverted to any of my past destructive behaviors.
I did my monthly measurements last night and was smaller in the waist & hips by a couple inches each and my chest was 1 inch smaller (not really where a woman wants to lose weight). The place I feel I had gained the most weight in the past 6 months was in my upper thighs/hips (good ol’ saddlebag region) and sadly that showed no decrease.
Since it has been 4 weeks now I am planning on changing up my routine and will try to concentrate more on lower body toning on my weight training days and also change up my cardio to trick my body some.
Well here goes the start of another 4 weeks, would like to hopefully at least lose 5 more lbs this next month and would be happy to at least be under that dreaded 140 mark I went over 6 months ago (Haven’t been this heavy in 5 years ).
