March Recap - 10lb Goal: Shot to Hell

So this month didn't go quite as planned, now did it??

My goal for March was to lose 10 lbs. Instead I lost 5.3 lbs. (198.0 as of today). Boo.

First, I took a few days off for my birthday at the beginning of the month, which ruined that week. And then I was away for a week and ate horribly. Then I came home for a few days and went away again. It was a very busy, not so great month.

I worked out 16 out of 31 days. You can see on the calendar the days I was away and didn't work out.

Ok so anyway... how about in April I blow 10 lbs out of the water? I have no distractions, so I'll be able to do it. I should be able to do it even when life gets in the way, but I guess I'm not there yet.

Here is my new goal and proclamation to you all... By April 30, I will be at least 188 lbs. I better do this. I need to catch up with my goals. Any suggestions of what I should do?

Attitude of Gratitude: I have still lost 50 lbs and am not letting a semi-bad month get me down and make me want to give up like I might have in the past. Onward and downward.

First off, congratulations on losing 5.3 pounds! That's awesome!! You surpassed at least half of your goal. Give yourself credit for that. Would it help if I told you that I had cake for my sons birthday (not even mine) back in October and got off track from then until NOW! AGH! You're jumping right back on and you'll meet and quite possibly exceed that 10 pound goal in April. You can do it!!!

5.3 is not even close to a bad month! You are doing amazing! You can do anything you put your mind to!

Life happens. I think you dealt with it the best you could. There is no shame in a loss of 1+ lbs per week. Keep at it lady!

Yes! I love onward and downward, and I love your attitude about this. You can so reach your goal in April. Keep it up!

I think with all that went on and only 16 workout 5+ pounds is amazing. I planned on losing 8 and made it to 3.8,,Grr but moving forward! Here's to all of us having a great april

Hey, even the current loss is great! (I prefer not to set any specific goals and just go for "as much as possible", but I am easily depressed when I do not meet my goals...)

5.3 ROCKS! Enjoy it! Pat yourself on the back for the work you put into losing those 5.3 pounds! As far as April goes shake things up! I think if you really want to lose 10 pounds...more than 2 per week, you've probably got to do some exercises that your body is really not used to. Mix it up and the pounds will follow. Have fun!

I think 5lbs a month is not bad at all. At least I hope not since thats about all I can ever muster. Either way its a great loss, if you want more an push harder you will make it to where you want to be.
