In January, I told you all about my healthy lifestyle change. The first month, I lost 9 pounds. Awesome, huh? However, Courtney won the weight loss challenge by about 0.02%. Damn.
During February, the scale didn’t move as much. However, I finally feel skinnier (even if others haven’t noticed). Pants are a little baggy, and I am not as self-conscious.
Weigh-in day was last Friday. I lost 4 pounds in February! Which came out to about 2.9%. Courtney lost 3.2%. Grr. Also, Courtney is well under her goal weight. If I was her, I would be doing cartwheels down the hall. I still have 5 pounds to lose. Overall, I have lost just over 9% of my body weight. How cool is that?
I am still tracking my calorie intake on My Fitness Pal…although not as religiously as before. I know these last 5 pounds won’t be easy to lose, but hopefully within the next few months I will be at my goal.
Has anyone else been trying to lose weight? Any good tips/tricks to kick those last 5 pounds to the curb?
