It is time for me to take my monthly measurements.
Since March 28, I have lost a total of 4.4 pounds and I also lost 2.25 inches overall. It's not fast but I just keep reminding myself, "slow and steady will win this race."
That philosophy has served me well in this go round on the weight loss journey. I have always been a pretty impatient person when it came to weight loss. I always, "want it gone NOW." But I am older and hopefully wiser and so I know my body will process as it needs to and there is not one thing I can do about it.
Of course, I could starve myself (NAH), or maybe become a super-exerciser (not gonna happen) and the weight and inches I lose would speed up. But the idea here is to work out a lifestyle that I will ACTUALLY sustain so neither of those options would work for me. I believe in moderation not starvation. As for exercise, I am still that person who needs to psyche herself up to even get in my daily walks...so super-exerciser, that would be a no.
I've decided to be happy with my downward progress and keep plugging. "As long as you are trying you will not fail." See you at next month's progress report.
