January 2013 Wrap Up

The month of January has come to a close and with it, the fourth chapter of my weight loss journey.  I did gain one pound since my last post on the 30th.  My current weight is 336 pounds.

The past month was filled with frustration for me.  I had felt like I was not losing weight fast enough.  When I reflect back I realized that at the end of December I actually weighed 343 pounds.  That means I lost seven pounds during the month of January.  I have read that one pound per week is healthy weight loss.  I lost more than a pound per week during this past month.  This is one of the reasons that blogging about my weight is so beneficial for me.  It helps me to keep perspective and stay focused.

A friend of mine shared with me that he has challenged himself to not eat out during the month of February.  I have decided to join him in this challenge.  I do eat out a lot less than I used to but it is still more than I should.  Does anyone else want to join us in not eating out during the month of February?  Leave a comment below if you are up to the challenge.  I am going to reserve one meal out for myself on or around my birthday.  I am sorry but I cannot pass up my free burger from Red Robin.

So, here is the wrap up for January 2013:
  • Total weight loss to date: 14 pounds
  • Total weight loss this year: 7 pounds
  • Total weight loss January 2013: 7 pounds
  • Total weight still to lose: 137 pounds
My next regularly scheduled blog post will be on February 5th.  I am excited to see how not eating out impacts my weight loss.  To quote one of my girls when they were just little, "let us just wait and check and see."  Take care friends!
