I started really watching my sugar/starch/grain intake on January third. Immediately I saw a quick drop in weight (water weight) and then it slowed down. Then I had a couple of increases in weight followed by decreases. I was doing a few things wrong and have corrected them.
All of that being said, the scale showed a 9.9 pound loss this month. I was hoping for a 10 pound loss. That's about as close as you can get!
I'm pleased with the loss but I'm not exactly doing a victory dance yet. Keep in mind that I gained 16 pounds in December. Sixteen.pounds. So I'm not even back to where I was before the gain. Easy to gain; hard to lose.
I'm a little mad at myself for gaining. Being mad is not necessarily a bad thing! I want to remember how pissed off I am that I gained that weight back because I never want to let it happen again. I don't want to have a laissez faire attitude about it.
Once I lose 16 pounds then I'll start celebrating the losses. As of now, I'm just trying to get back to where I started before December rolled around.
Some good news: the clothes are fitting noticeably better and the tummy is going down.
Don't misunderstand: I'm happy with the weight loss. Oh, sure, I wish it were more! But that's a great start for someone who barely did any exercise.
Next weigh in report will be March 3. New and Improved Kelly coming your way.
Do you weigh? If so, how often?
