So my goal was to lose 10 lbs. by March 14th, the start of Lent. I don't know that that's going to happen. I've lost two pounds in the past month (so 1/2 lb. per week), but I'm just below where i was on Christmas Day. It took me 6 weeks of regaining and redropping weight to get to that point I was on Christmas. I'm hoping that I can reach my goal, but I'm having trouble doing it. For one thing, I'm sleeping too late, and getting up too late to exercise. I know I will be able to exercise Wed., Thurs., and Fri. this week, but I was hoping to get in one more day, as another one of my goals is to exercise 5 times per week. But three seems to be the only amount I can squeeze in, which I guess is better than nothing, but isn't helping me reach my goal. My biggest problem is eating. I can go many days eating healthy, but then I slip up and have problems getting back on track. I try hard not to eat out, but some nights I'm just tired and hungry and the diner is right around the back of my apt. complex... So I still cheat too much. I will keep trying. I know that loosing 1/2 lb. per week is still something, and if that's all I can achieve, then so be it. At least I am still losing weight and not gaining it like I was last month.
