One month

7 lbs in one month! I'm very happy about that! I almost didn't weigh today...had a bad couple of days and didn't exercise every day like I should have (missed two days). But reading all my SP friends' blogs and all their success stories...I figured I needed to own up and DO it!

Glad I did! I actually lost a pound this week! Making my total for Jan, 7! Small progress in the big scheme of things. But focusing on the positive: my clothes fit comfortably, I have a new spring in my step, activity is easier, my spirits are high. Small things no one else would see...but I can FEEL!

Today, I'm re-focused and challenging myself to try a little harder. Eating less is difficult...but I think I'm up for it now! So...let's see how the next four weeks fare! Bring it ON!

    AWESOME!!!!! I lost 4.4 lbs in 8 wks so not bad, as biggest loser people say I'll take that lol
    I hope you have a great week this week and enjoy the week.
    We didn't go in a lot of rvs as we were lookiing for only motorhomes as we have a 34' trailer and are debating keepping it and getting a truck again ( we have it seasonal somewhere and is costly) or getting a motorhome.
    So did okay knee wise but my back is still really bad. hope it clears cos it is a tad scarey, not the pain I am used to...

    You said in your blog, "small progress in the big scheme of things", but 7 lbs is 7 lbs!! Put 7 lbs in a shopping bag, no really--go do it! Then lift it a few times. 7 lbs has HEFT to it. That's what you were carrying around, that you aren't carrying around now. It's not like lifting a 50 lb kid or a TV, but it has WEIGHT and it's a real amount that you can notice, in the shopping bag.

    This is what I am going to do EVERY month, at the end of the month with whatever I lost that month--I hope it helps you feel encouraged too. I have over 100 lbs to lose, so I know how you are feeling. I lost 9 lbs for January, so now I need 97 more lbs to go. But hey, 9 lbs is 9 lbs.
