Okay, I intended to write this on the first, but didn't do it. So you're getting my monthly update today.
I weighed and measured myself on Tuesday because I want to do that every month on the 1st. My weight came in at 221.6. So, I lost 6.8 lbs in April. And that was after losing 6.6 in March. So I'm pretty close to averaging 1.5 per week...which was my goal!
I've also lost 3" since I started this journey on March 5th. I'd like to keep up this pace through the summer. That means I could be down another 27 lbs and 6" by early September. That would be lovely! I know things will slow down as I drop my weight. But I think this is still a good rate of loss for my size.
The fact is, even though I have a long way to go, I can feel the differences in my body and my fitness. I can run much farther than I could before. I can endure a workout much easier than before. I'm eating better too, which is always a good thing. And so far, I'm still enjoying the process. So, here's hoping the next few months are as successful and enjoyable as the first two!
