February’s weight lost: -1.4
I skipped my weigh-in last week, but I’m back now. I’ve been feeling very badly about weight recently – how did I manage to gain 4 pounds?! (I weighed myself last Wednesday, and was at 172.) I’m feeling unsuccessful and off-goal. So it is a shock to me that I still managed to lose 1.4 pounds in February. It’s not the 4 pounds I was aiming for, but it’s still a loss and it makes me feel somewhat successful.
Accordingly to my goal chart, I should be at 167. While three pounds is truly a very small amount, it’s the difference between feeling like a winner and feeling like a failure. I want to stay on-goal, I want to stay successful. I’ve been trying to tell myself that I am successful – I have lost 55 pounds! But I still can’t shake how many pounds off-goal I am, and trying to figure out ways to get back on-goal.
But I did lose 1.4 pounds this month. And I know that by the end of next month I’ll be able to say I’m on-goal again. I just know it. I’ve begun working out in the mornings again and I’ve been studiously tracking my calories. I know I can do this!
