2013 Monthly Weight Loss February Update

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Well, when you got it to lose you better lose it. And I lost 7% of it which is equal to 28 lbs! I am now down to 370. My short term goal for the month was only 20 so I think I did pretty good.

It wasn't that hard to do. Once again, my mindset is clear and I am ready for this. I ate much better this past month. And I also had some pizza and ice cream and other foods you might not think you can eat while trying to lose weight but you can. The key is not to have them 2,3 or 4 times per day and when you do have them keep the portion size down. I have not yet begun any exercise besides the regular stay-at-home, clean the house type of stuff.

Personal stuff this month, well it was sick, sick and sick. Oh yeah and cold and warm and really cold and really warm. Maybe that's why we were sick. I can't wait for Spring to get here. Now the weatherman says that the track for Fridays incoming storm is so iffy we can get all rain or up to 22" of snow... oh ok. So nothing to worry about then. GRRR.

Nothing much to tell about from the last month since we didn't do much. This next month, I will set a goal of 22lbs. And make some time to begin some exercise, most likely on the coat rack... I mean stationary bike downstairs.

Take care and stay healthy

    That is an absolutely fantastic month! You are well on your way down and I am glad to see that you are setting aggressive goals. Isn't it odd that once we "remember" how to do this it isn't actually all that hard? So happy that you and I are making progress together - we should both be in pretty good shape by this spring! Thanks for the comments on my blogs - I know that you love the Caribbean and I actually even thought of you when I posted the water pic the other day. Hope you have a vacation at some point in the new future to look forward to!

    You did great! If you are out there shoveling, please be careful. Take it slow and easy. Listen to your body. Lecture over.

    Glad to see you are sparking. Look forward to reading about your progress!
