January is over and ta-da 13lbs down! I was actually content with having lost 10lbs for January and a little afraid to weight myself today because my son was sick and well I found every reason in the world not to exercise this weekÖ I still managed to watch my calories fairly close so I think that was my saving grace. I reluctantly stepped on the scale and another 3lbs down I was so relieved.

I think the hard part for me right now is even though the scale is showing change I canít really tell physically yet, I guess I thought I would be seeing a change by now or things would be fitting a lot betterÖ where the heck did those 13lbs come off from ?!? Iíd like to know! Lol My boss got back from a two week trip and he said he could see a difference but for everyone that sees me every day I donít think they can so much.

I hope I can find more motivation to really push some better workouts this next week I really slacked last week and was lucky that I was able to lose some weight still. Yikes!

I also need to figure out how to get more fresh foods into my diet because I find that I seem to be eating a lot of microwave things keeping in my calorie count as well as fats and everything but I do think there needs to be more fresh stuff. On the upside I really havenít eaten salads because I love ranch dressing it being so high calorie I was looking for alternatives and my dad made a wonderful vinaigrette that is yummy and super low calorie! I see more salads in my future!

Iím still kind confused on how many calories I should aim to burn everyday vs. how much I eat I know to lose I need at least a 1000 calorie deficit but knowing how to figure that out is a little confusing.
