I didn't quite make my monthly challenge....

Friday, July 31, 2009

I joined a challenge back around May 1st and haven't met it yet! It was a "lose 10 pounds a month" challenge. I didn't lose any weight in the month of May. I lost 2 pounds in the month of June. I weighed this morning to get a final July weight and I lost 7 pounds in July! I was 3 pounds shy of my goal! Part of me is very upset that I once again didn't make my goal. Yet part of me is excited that I got so close! So, I am just going to stay excited and not complain because I did really good considering I have been working out and dieting since March and the weight just started coming off. March through May saw absolutely no weight loss. Now that is discouraging. BUT, June saw a little bit and then July saw 7 pounds come off!! WOOHOO! So, guess what I'm gonna do? I am going to try to make the full 10 pounds in August. I was only 3 pounds short in July, so I am going to try to do a little more walking and see if I can't pull off the full 10 in August! Wish me luck!!

    Lots of Luck your way!!

    I too went for a challenge of 10 pounds per month. It is an achievable goal but I have been 4 pounds shy for June and July, but I am not too upset b/c I have been exercising and eating right since April.

    Good For Us!!! I am shooting for ONDERLAND!!! by the end of August!!
