I usually weigh myself everyday to keep me “on guard” and focus on my weight loss journey. Every Thursday I record my weight on my blog so you can see my progress.
Here is what I had for April
- April 5——————————178 pounds / 80.7 kilos
April 12—————————-176 pounds / 79.8 kilos
April 19—————————-177 pounds / 80.3 kilos
For the last 2 weeks I have had weird day-to-day fluctuations, more than I have usually and it was kind of going down to come back up around the same spot all the time. This morning it was back up again so I was thinking that I should change something to get off this plateau. Then I go on my blog to log in the weight and to my surprise I have lost 2 pounds!
So I am now at 175 pounds! /79.4 kilos
I think from now on I should have a look at my loss progress page too because I tend to forget all what I have lost and just focus on the present week.
So April wasn’t so bad after all because I was 179 pounds / 81.2 kilos at the end of march and have lost 4 pounds. It could have been more but 1 pound a week was my goal when I started so I am perfectly happy with it, after all the important thing is to lose a little but gain a lot of healthiness.
It has been exactly 5 months since I have started this journey and I have lost 33 pounds / 15 kilos so far. I feel very proud of it but often the impatient me steps in to tell me that things are not going fast enough! I don’t like that side of me but it takes a lot of place in my mind sometimes. The hardest thing on this journey for me is the long-term part of it. Moderation is the other hard part that drives me crazy. I have to keep reminding me that I won’t be done on the day that I reach my goal because I will switch into the life-long maintenance part. So in other word, I am not on a diet, I am changing my life for good.
What if instead of dieting to lose weight, weight loss was only the reward to help us stick to the healthy life-style…
