Every new month is a time to evaluate my goals and progress. By looking at a month at a time, it's much easier for me to see that I am losing weight, even if that particular week was a gain. (Thankfully, not this week!)
I am right on track. I've never been right on track EVER before on my weight loss journey. It feels amazing. So my goals for February are simple: to stay on track!
- (Continue to) Lose a pound a week. That will put me at 167 on March 1st. Wow! At 171 this is a completely new weight for me, and I love being here. I can't imagine what it'll feel like to be in the 160s!
- Eat more homemade foods. I've been trying to eat less processed foods. I've made tomato soup for this week's lunches, and last week was homemade butternut squash soup. I would like to continue to eat non-Trader Joe's frozen foods for the rest of the month's lunches.
- Eat within my calorie limit. This is always the hardest for me. I would like to have one week - a whole seven days - where I stay in my calorie range. I think that's too big of a goal for me at this point, though. So my February goal is to have three consecutive days where I eat within my calorie range.
