January goal met and more

Sunday, February 01, 2015

Hi Everyone.

I met my goal of losing 5 pounds in January. My beginning weight was 282 and my goal at the end of the month was 277. This morning I weighed 259. I lost 23 pounds in January and 12 from last year, so I am a total of 35 pounds down from my heaviest weight of 294.

I am so excited but this is when I have to be so careful because I lose weight fast it is easy for me to make compromises and undo all of my success. So my February goal is to lose 5 pounds.

Today is my 28th day without sodas. I am craving a lot less because of no sodas. I was drinking the caffeine free diet sodas. I believe the artifical sweetners were increasing my cravings.

I have also cut way back on bread and sugar. I have not cut them out completely but about 85 to 90 percent less.

I am working out at least 3 to 5 times a week.

So, my goal for February is to weigh 254. And I am determined not to be discouraged if I only lose 5 pounds. I cannot and should not expect to lose 23 pounds again in a month.

    Congratulations!! That is super Awesome on making your weight loss goal to lose 5 pounds at a time.. keeping it realistic makes it achievable. I am your Motivational Members Team leader Jill and I have been taking care of things for Judy while she has been away having knee replacement surgery. You should stop by and read Judy's page for some encouragement Judy4Jesus. Judy did the same thing by making small goals of 5 pounds and committing herself to God, she successfully reached and has been maintaining her weight loss. Now that she is in rehab and has been there for sometime, due to the knee becoming infected, she may have gained a little ,weight. But I have confidence that she will take right back to her commitment of eating healthy and working out to get back in shape with God right by her side. I will be looking for an up date on your blog. Don't forget we have a no sugar challenge for February on the Motivator's team for the month, be sure and sign up.
