Although I am not where I hoped I would be at this date, I have lost 3 lbs in January, which for my most hated month of the year, is not bad.
Also, here is what I don't see on the scale anymore, and plan to never see again.
Numbers beginning with the digits
In the category of "Perspective" :
I have made significant positive changes to my diet (including lowering calories, increasing protein and decreasing sugar). 2 things I have left to conquer are increasing water intake and eating more veggies. I have tried every trick in the book to drink more water and simply failed through lack of will.
I have finally made progress in this area.
This week I received my water bottle from water.org.
Who am I to be too lazy to drink water, when there are people in the world who cannot access clean drinking water for their children? I am now drinking more water. I am not tracking it yet, and may never track the ounces, but I carry this bottle with me all day.
Enjoy your weekend, all!

- Six years ago I decided (age) 42 would be my magic number. I stepped on the scale for the first time in a LONG time. It was a BIG number, it was a SCARY number, but mostly I knew I had to own that number. I lost 40 pounds, leaving the obese category behind. In 2014 I committed myself to working out HARD and a low sugar diet, losing more weight and gaining nice definition. Then life happened, and I lost momentum, gaining some weight back. My goals now are different, and include completing my first ever marathon at age 48. GULP! You can read about the next part of my journey here.
