I began this month weighing in at 146.4 lbs, feeling like a failure and I'm ending the month at 148 lbs, feeling like I won the world. I definitely didn't accomplish any of the phsyical goals I set for myself but I made significant process in my mental journey. I feel better about the future and I've identified why some things seemed like insurmountable obstacles.
I am extremely proud of the grand strides I've made in the way of healthy eating. Instead of going out to eat at a fast food restaurant every day I am making lunches at home to eat at school. I am trying to find new ways to satisfy the need that food is currently filling to stop impulsively eating when things begin overwhelming me. I am also proud of the fact that, although I have mountains of school work, I do not feel like I can't stay on top of it.
At this point in the journey I need to re-evaluate my goals. I still want to lose 5 lbs per month until April but I want the focus to be a reduction in fat around my mid-section instead of simply weighing less. This means I'll have to step up my exercise regime. I can do it and I'm looking forward to continuing on this journey.
