Only 2.5 lbs.

As I posted my monthly pictures last night I realized that I have lost only 2.5 pounds over this past month. That was a real eye-opener for me. I knew it had been a bit rough and I had ups and downs, but I didn't realize just how bad it really was.

So, tonight I read over all of my weigh-in posts from the past month. Hhhmm..... There is lots to think about, but let's keep it short tonight and just say that I don't plan on having another 2-3 lb weight loss for a month. The first month I wasn't bummed at all, because I was just getting my activity in order. Then I did great, got on the ball about my food and lost 9 more poundsthe second month and then.... hhhmm... Maybe too much pondering about weight loss and not enough action?

Or was this a month of learning for me? Learning what didn't work and what really does work?

I'm not really sure, but I know that I need to step it up. Get things in gear. I know I'm not in a rush to lose the weight, but that's no excuse for laziness and to be honest, YES I'm a little vexed with myself right now.

It's been a good week and a good weekend, for that matter, so I'll just keep going. I just hope I can get with the program so I don't have to see such a small loss over the next month. *sigh* Giving up is not an option for me.



  1. I know that it isn't as much as you had hoped, but you have it right - don't give up. And the good thing of course, is that you didn't gain.

    I bet this month will be a bigger loss for you! Have a great week.

  2. Sorry it wasn't as much as you thought, but at least it's still a loss right? :) Keep it up, maybe change things around a bit and try to squeeze in some extra exercise and i'm sure you'll see a bigger loss next month!

  3. The good think is that you did lose for the month. That is much more encouraging than a gain. If nothing else, you have a renewed vigor now, and I am sure next this upcoming month will be a much different story.

  4. MuffinTop & LogMyLoss - Thanks for stopping by and for your encouragement. Yes, I do hope to see a better loss next monht. :)
