My Second month started on Sunday, February 4th. That first week I weighed in at 141.2 pounds, a loss of 1.6 pounds from the previous week. Week two starting Sunday, February 11th I weighed in at 141.6 pounds, a slight gain of half a pound. Week three started Sunday, February 18th.I weighed in at 140.4, down 1.2 pounds. Week four started Sunday, February 25th and needless to say I weighed in at 141.2 with a gain of a little under a pound.
My first month ended at 142.8, so I am down a total of .7 pounds for the month. I know this doesn’t seem to be a big accomplishment but I feel very proud. February was a stressful month for me. I worked a lot of extra time at work due to two co-workers having the flu and then my boss leaving the country for two weeks. I didn’t have as much time for exercise as I would have liked. What I am most proud of this month is that I did not stress eat which I have a habit of doing.
I am learning that I can succeed at the new habits I am setting for myself. I know that I may have slow and uneventful weeks in my journey, and maybe I’ll have weeks where I lose a surprising amount of weight. I don’t want to hurry this process. We all have times in our lives where we are cautious and take small steps and other times when it is okay to take a big jump.
