This week I celebrate 4 months on Sparks! Is that all it's been because it feels like so much longer!
I'm still super happy with my overall progress HOWEVER this is the first month where my statistics have gone backwards. All up I am 2kgs heavier than last month and I gained back 1cm overall on my body since last month. I gained 1cm back each on thigh and upper arm and lost 1cm on hip. My waist is the same.
All in all I'm pleased with the results and the fact I have gone slightly backwards only just makes me now want to STRONGLY recommit to my health and weightloss program. It's time to start taking some of my own advice again and doing what works for me.
The one biggest lesson I have learned during the last month is that the moment I stopped tracking food I stopped losing consistent weight. I had tracked my food for a good part of 2-3 months initially and then had a rest from it, thinking that I am wise enough now to estimate portions sizes and calories. The short answer to that is I didn't do too bad - it could have been worse, but it definitely could have been better.
So with that said I am recommitting to tracking and measuring food again!
I also went off my fitness program during the course of the month - it's been all over the place since before Christmas. The festive season wrecked havoc with my healthy eating and time is flying by so fast I haven't even gone to do my laps in the swimming pool this month!
As we are in another heat wave streak here in Australia I am planning on visiting the public pool to do laps and with the air conditioner going at home I can do my treadmill workouts.
THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE FOR ME!
These next two images are not going to be me!!
Have a great day/night everyone and thanks for your ongoing encouragement and support.
I can't do this without the help of my sparkfriends!
WHO HAS STRAYED AND WANTS TO JOIN ME WITH A FRESH COMMITMENT TO THEIR HEALTH AND WEIGHTLOSS PROGRAM!?!?
