Weight-wise, I broke even. I haven't been able to lose for about 3 months now, I just bounce around the same couple of pounds. That's ok, I have 11 more months to go in 2009, and I can still identify successes for the month of January:
-Breaking even, though not as good as losing, IS STILL A SUCCESS for me.
-I've been working out most days, even when I'm not feeling so well, to try and get my body stronger. I'm proud of my efforts and feel I have been successful in keeping myself as active as I can be.
-I've been journaling, tracking, and posting to stay accountable, motivated, and in-tune with my emotions, health, and eating.
-I only used 1 sick day in January. (Granted, I reduced to part time for now due to health, but I am still glad about this! I was burning through my sick and vacation leave before!)
My goals for Feb. are to work harder on how I eat on my bad days when I'm more sick, and to be more conscious of my portion sizes. I don't think I'll assign a specific weight-loss goal. If I lose anything, I'll be thrilled. But I might still need to focus on maintenance.
Thats fantastic - and I agree maining and not gaining while not in the best of health or emotionally strong is a fantastic success.
And staying accountable by tracking, posting and journalling shows your determination... well done :) x
January was good!! i still struggle with food issues im just so scared to start gaining bk again! but i have learned its ok to indulge every now and then and as long as i continue to exercise and do my best i will succeed!
Weight wise-Did great! i lost 5 lbs this month!! now i just need this last 5 to meet my goal which i did set to be done by March!! Just believe its 1 month away now!!
Ur 10 lbs was just this month? thats amazing GJ!! I had to fight to get that 10lbs off lol! i think almost 7-8 weeks to force it lol!!
I went from eating maybe 4-5000 calories a day largley on chocolate, crisps, cakes, pastries and doing no exercise (taking the car everywhere) to eating 1000-2000 a day, going to the gym walking a lot more and exercising a lot at home... the 10lb was the result.... lol
wow!! Thats amazing!! Great work!!
when i started i knew i wasnt a big eater so chkd my cals. which were ok you u know needed to cut bk on fast food not eat candy and chips everyday stuff like that and then with exercise it knocked the lbs right off!! a big change for me is having my own place i get to by my own food now instead of having to eat what my in laws have!! which is nothing good! i used to eat fried eggs and tortillas every morning, well now its yogurt and slim fast!!
Oh yeah January was also succesful cus i finally lost some inches i lost 2.5 inches on my stomach,1 on my arms and 1 off my hips! my tummy is the trouble zone so to knock off that many in about 3 wks im very happy!!
OOhhhh well doe you :)
I have to say I love measuring inches- I see more results that way lol.
