Today was my 4th weekly weigh in and the first week I didn’t get in all 7 workouts.  I hoped to still lose 1 pound since I kept to my calorie limit and I did get in 6 workouts.  Well, I didn’t lose 1 pound, I lost 1.3 pounds, yahoo.  That brings my total lost to 5.3 pounds.  Remember I’m only 5′ 2″, so I’ll give you my weight and my BMI.  I’ve officially entered the 150s, well I’m at 159.8, but I’m in there.  My BMI is now 29.2, down from 30.2 just a month ago!!  Today was also a measurement day for me and I’m happy to say in the last month I’ve lost 1 inch from my waist and just over a 1/2 inch on my hips and thighs!!

After seeing three weeks in a row of weight loss, I can really say I’m trusting the process!!  Keeping to a calorie limit and working out daily seems to be the thing for me!!  I’m very excited.  If I can lose 1.4 pounds this week I’ll reach my first goal, 15% of my total goal.  If that wasn’t exciting enough, it would be just in time to go shopping for a new dress for a reception in mid August.

With all this exciting news you’d think I’d be over the moon and I am, but I still have so far to go.  I keep writing that I’m on this journey for the long haul and I am.  I need to keep restating my goal, it’s not just to lose a few pounds and become complacent.  I want it all this time, to go all the way!!!  Valentines Day will be here before I know it, but it’s so hard to wait.

I’m still committed, I’m still in this and I’ve moving forward, trusting the process.
