February - 10.6 lbs lost

I was definitely on my game this month. Last month, I made a goal to lose 10 lbs in February, and as of this morning, I have lost 10.6 lbs in the last month. Yay, I did it!

As far as goals, I feel like it's kind of hard to set weight loss goals because personally, I don't really know what my body is capable of losing. I know I can eat right and exercise, but don't know exactly what influences what the scale will say at the end of the week.

But I can control what I do, so here's what I've done this month...

  • I blogged about how much I hated drinking water, and ended up getting a ton of very helpful responses that persuaded me to drink more water. Now I know how important it is, so I drink about 100 oz. a day.
  • I worked out 26 out of the 28 days. I typically did 60 minutes on the elliptical and/or a workout DVD. Working out is a habit now. I feel like I have to do it, especially if I don't have a reason not to. I do believe in taking days off, so I will probably drop it to 6 days a week soon.
  • I tracked the points of everything I ate, writing it all down, and staying within my daily points. I didn't use many weekly points at all. I have been eating healthy foods and hardly anything processed.
  • I blogged pretty much every day and have gained support, encouragement and advice from so many amazing people! Thank you, thank you!
Attitude of Gratitude: I met a goal I set for myself and it feels awesome!

I have a similar calendar that I track my workouts on. Helps me see some progress in my lifestyle change, even if the scale isn't registering my successes.

I need some stickers now.. I've fallen off my workout routine big time since all the stuff with my brother started- seeing your calendar is very motivating though! And kudos on meeting your goal!!
