I already spilled the beans in yesterday’s post, but here it is again: DOWN FIVE POUNDS!
I’ve already written a lot about this weight loss, and while I probably repeat myself a lot, I’m not gonna do this time. Click here to read all about it!
One small thing to add, though: Read the rest of this entry »

Two weeks ago, I started on a new food program called RECON from Personal Trainer Food. They very kindly shipped me a month’s worth a food, and I’ve been eating it! I wanted to do a little update, since I’m about halfway through the month. Read the rest of this entry »

Another month, another weigh-in! Here’s the results after I got on the scale yesterday, as shown on my weight loss chart:
I stayed even. Maintaining my weight is always a win, although to be honest, I was expecting a loss, because my exercise this month has been excellent. (More on that in a bit.) Read the rest of this entry »

I have an official weigh-in at the start of every month. I share the results right here, along with data about my exercise accomplishments, but I didn’t share anything last month. It slipped through the cracks. Whoops! So now I have two months to catch you up on. Let’s dig in!

I’m hard on myself. Probably harder than I should be. I set high standards and goals, and I’m good at beating myself up when I don’t reach them. When it comes to my health and weight loss journey, I push myself. And the results are impressive. I’ve lost around 160 pounds, and kept it off for over four years.
There are so many times, though, that I simply feel that this isn’t good enough. And that’s when I start beating myself up. And it’s got to stop. I need to rethink weight loss maintenance.

I’ve settled into a routine where I only do weigh-ins once a month. If I do them more frequently, I start to obsess over the numbers and I don’t need that particular obsession in my life. If I do them less frequently, I find myself derailing off my program, due to a lack of accountability.
My weigh-ins are on the first of the month. This one is a few days delayed, because I was up north when April turned to May, but I weighed myself when I got back. Wanna see how I updated my weight loss chart? Read the rest of this entry »
