Month 3... Second Measurement day!

I have mixed feelings about my results this month. I am definitely making progress, but it's so little it's hard to stay positive about things. Last month, I gained like 2-3 lbs. I am assuming this was muscle, because I've really gained definition. I was still dissappointed that the numbers were going up and not down, though. I did, however, lose an inch and a half off my ass, and 1% body fat.
This month, I've lost 3 lbs, an inch off my waist, and 1/2 inch off my ass. My body fat % stayed the same, and all my other measurements stayed the same.

This is good I guess? I'm hoping one month to lose more than 5 lbs. It seems like I should be dropping a little faster, but all in all, it was a good gain considering I spent the weekend immediately before it in a pure hedonistic, gluttonous stupor in Dallas. You really can't beat floating around a cool pool in hot weather drinking wine coolers, though.

I measured my waist about two weeks ago and didnt' see any difference, but the lady who did it this month seemed to pull it tighter than normal. From the 2in I took in on my Arshtat waist cincher, though, I could have guessed I lost there XD

I dunno. I don't think it's unrealistic for me to want it to go at least a little faster. I figured I'd be losing around 5-8ish lbs a month and be able to meet my 30 lb goal for Afest, no problem. I think I will be lucky if I lose 15 at this rate :P I will keep going, though. Maybe because the numbers are going down now, I'll see better progress next month. It's really hard to say since I slipped up the last week and a half with food. I have to try and have faith that if I keep plodding along, I'll eventually get where I want. It really does seem that the longer I go, the harder it gets, though. I was hoping that once I got into the swing of things it would be easier. :P

    I kind of forget about Livejournal now. It feels so empty that I've joined a bunch of communities, but it's not really helping! Since November,…

  • November is almost over already?!?!

    I've really enjoyed not having anything important to do for a while. I've been cleaning (a little bit), quilting (a lot, but in short bursts), and…
