13 Down.... 39 to Go!

So, I was reviewing my weight loss for the year and I realized that though I have not achieved most of my goals set for the year, I seem to have made a bit of progress. I have lost 11.8lbs since January meaning, an average of 3.8lbs a month. 

Some of the habits that I have been able to maintain are:

  • I drink a lot of water
  • I eat more fruits and vegetables on a daily basis
I am still trying to avoid the refined carbs... not easy but, I try to take such foods at most ONCE a week. I have drastically reduced my intake of diet sodas - I only take those when out with friends or at the movies. My clothes are also loose. Yesterday, I wore a dress I haven't worn in 3 years to church. Oh yeah baby! That's a total NSV there. :-) 

So, I guess I have 39 weeks left to lose 38.2lbs if I'm going to meet my goal of losing 50lbs by December. I can do this. Oh yes! I can!


  1. Great job! I love when I wear something that I haven't worn in a long time because it fits better.

  2. Of course you can do that. And even if, in the end, you should only have lost 35 or 49 pounds, it would still be victory.

  3. Good for you! I got lost in my weight loss journey, but I am going back this month!

  4. I think 3.8lbs a month is a great pace! Keeping those good habits and doing what you do now until December will help you meet that goal! You can!

  5. You're doing a great job! Just keep sticking with it!

  6. 3.8/month is so great! You can so do this!
    I'm still struggling to kick the refined starch addiction.

    At first I clutched onto bread/pasta for dear life: I'll run, but leave my starchy heaven alone! But now, it's getting easier and easier. Last week I had some pasta AND bread, and my reaction to it was: meh...

  7. 3.8 a month is amazing!!!! thats 45.6 in a year!! wowsa!

  8. Love the NSV! You've done brilliant!
