I was trying to wait to blog until I was in a mood more reflective of the great success I had in January but February is slipping away and the mood is not improving. Thank goodness Spring is just around the corner.
I lost 11.8 pounds last month! Yay!
15.7% of my goal
5.3% of my body weight
The first month is usually the best. My goal sheet worked for half of January, then I lost it and quit making sure I did everything, everyday. I HAVE logged my calories truthfully everyday - that is a first for me. Anytime I have pursued weight-loss I have not tracked every day for a month long stretch. Ever. I am pleased with that.
I have the same amount of determination to complete my goals. I don't have that heightened enthusiasm as that first week. Still going strong though.
Looking forward to spring. I am excited to see how many of the bulbs I planted come up. I am excited to garden, it is our first year. My husband is a little crazy, he is going overboard. I don't think he realizes how much work it is. We were talking though, if we won the lottery both of us would want to buy a big farm and grow a variety of organic produce. I sometimes think I would love to sell produce and jams at a farmer's market. It seems like such a satisfying life, very connected to the earth. Concrete.
I digress because I am trying to think of something worthy of writing about in regards to healthy life styles and weight loss but am coming up blank. I will say, reading the message boards, other people's blogs and the articles on SP has been very inspiring and has helped keep my on track when I would rather eat chips or cake.
I read a neat mantra somewhere, "you never regret eating too little the next day"
