I lost 8.4 pounds this month!! I have not lost that much in a month since my first month on SparkPeople. My total weight lost is now 43.8 pounds. Sometimes I still can’t believe I’ve lost that much weight.
The funny thing is, I have NO idea what was different about this month. The only thing I can think of is the fact that I cut back my cardio from 6 days to 4 days so I could focus more on healthy eating. I was worried that cutting back to only 4 days would hurt me, but it looks like it’s been very beneficial to me. I really have been paying more attention to the food choices I make, and when I do workout, I make each workout awesome. So I’m going to keep to my 4-day workout schedule while throwing in the occasional 5th day if I want to. I do miss working out every day, so if there are days when I want to workout but don’t have it scheduled, I’ll do it anyway.
I love having the freedom to experiment with my fitness plan, and I love how I am feeling about myself and my body. Now that I’ve lost almost 44 pounds (!), I truly believe I can make it to my goal. There is no turning back! I will not give up or give in! I just keep visualizing myself in the misses section of the clothing store, with my pick of clothes to wear. I cannot wait!
