Well, March was Kind of a Bust.


Monday, April 08, 2013

I didn't lose any weight in March. I didn't gain any either, so I suppose that's something, particularly considering that I went on vacation to London for a week and ate my way through the city. All of that walking paid off for sure. But not losing any weight this month really messes with my plan.

The goal is 8.4 pounds a month, which would be 100 in a year, and get me to the top of my goal range. However, I have not made that 8.4 any month yet. I did pretty well in January with 7.6, and that's really impressive considering that I had a birthday in the middle of that, and a couple of big parties. In February I lost 3.5, not nearly what I wanted to lose, but at least the scale was headed in a downwards direction. March though, argh. I clearly lost my way.

I'm thinking about going back to my vegan experiment. There were just so many less options for me, and it was so easy to just say no to things like cheese and, well, more cheese, when it was not allowed. I am not very good with impulse control; rules make me feel more secure. So maybe the vegan thing is the way to go. Sigh. I do love cheese.

    I think maybe I need to do a vegan experiment......or something emoticon . I let myself get off track months ago and am finding it hard to get back. You are doing great in tackling it right away! emoticon emoticon

    Not gaining is definitely good!!! And I never lose according to plan, I've finally learned my body is unpredictable and my weight loss varies from month to month and year to year.

    Not gaining is a win! Might not be part of the plan, but it's better than gaining back weight. Not losing, well that's just par for the course.
Could you allow yourself cheese once a week or something like that, so you're not cutting it out completely? since you like it so much (just an idea, because I love cheese too, and I don't think I could give it up all together)
You're doing great!!

    I have those months too. Hang in there because you are worth it!. My goals for each month are very close to yours. I started out with 65 lbs. to lose and it has been slow going since last summer. I keep tweeking my diet and exercise to find something I can really live with the rest of my life. I admire the vegan discipline, but I love fresh fish, shrimp and grain fed beef - grilled, is pretty close to the love of my life :)

    Hang in there! Your accountability is key, and as long as you keep your goals in sight, you *will* get where you're going! emoticon
