Weigh In Wednesday

I know it has been a few weeks but I just have not felt like writing.  Actually as it March 1st it has been a whole month oops!

Before I get to the weight loss, today is also Yellow Shirt Day which kicks of the month or week (depending where you are in the world) of Endometriosis Awareness.  I have my Fight Like A Girl yellow endometriosis awareness t-shirt on today, do you?  If not that's okay just get prepared for next year you have 12 months warning.  I am planning on doing a post or two throughout the month to try and raise some awareness.

Right well back to the weight loss.  After 4 weeks I am another 4.5lb's down.  Of course it would be brilliant if it was more but I have learned to be happy with a 1lb loss per week.  I set myself a target of reaching 50lb loss by my weigh in last night and that didn't happen still 2.5lb to go for that.  In the past setting myself a target and failing to reach it was really detrimental to the whole process.  This time I am in a whole different frame of mind and it really isn't a big deal.

50lb is so near now that I don't care when I get it as long as I get it.  Well that is a bit of a lie I want it next week (or the week after).  I am going to be extremely good this week and may even throw a little exercise back in the loop now the the days are staying lighter for longer.  I was planning on getting back out doing the C25K again a couple of weeks ago but life has just gotten in the way.

I did make a start on kettlebell training though and I really enjoyed it.  I must get myself in to a routine and fit it in a few times a week perhaps alternating with the c25k.

My weigh in the results the past few weeks were:

Feb 8th      2lb loss
Feb 15th 0.5lb loss
Feb 22nd 0.5lb gain  I have no idea what went wrong this week
Feb 29th     2lb loss

So overall it has been a good month as I am 4.5lb lighter today than February 1st.  Keep your fingers crossed I hit that 50lb mark soon.  For anyone else on this journey I hope you are doing great!
