    Total loss for January - 1.1 lbs

    Honestly, I’m a little frustrated. I’ve been working my butt off adding consistent exercise to my routine (and of course still sticking to my calories) and I feel like the weight is just barely coming off. It is my period week so there might be some water retention happening. I just feel like I’ve been working really hard the past 10 days and haven’t gotten much to show for it.

    @Running2FitRunning : losing a pound a week is a very good rhythm for solid weight loss.

    https://www.cdc.gov/healthyweight/losing_weight/index.html :
    "It’s natural for anyone trying to lose weight to want to lose it very quickly. But evidence shows that people who lose weight gradually and steadily (about 1 to 2 pounds per week) are more successful at keeping weight off. "

    Also I am sure you really do not want to read this. But now you are about 25 pounds away from your goal weight. And there are lots of discussions around the fact that when one only has X amount of pounds to lose. It is not uncommon for it to come off slowly like half a pound per week at the most. I am sure it is frustrating for you as you have lost 44 pounds and want the balance to just keep coming off steady. But as we know weight loss is not linear at all. Hopefully soon you will have a week when you lose 2-3 at one time.

    January 1st - 181.4
    January 2nd -181.1 So glad to have my new digital scale so that I feel rewarded by "good" days. I am also happy with my decision to weigh every day, it makes me mindful every night that I will be weighing in the morning and affects my choices.
    January 3rd - 181.9
    January 4th - 181.7
    January 5th - 178.7
    January 6th - 182.5 Crazy how everything fluctuates. I couldn't believe yesterday, so weighed 5 times. Up 3.8 from yesterday, but I have skating on the docket for today. Perhaps I will discover a trend in something that I am doing, eating, or something that I am not eating with how it affects me.
    January 7th - 181.7
    January 8th - 183.0 - really don't get the gain this time, I was in really good numbers all week.
    January 9th - 182.2 - I seriously expect a really big loss soon. I am just sticking with it. I am working very long hours this week, maybe my body is holding on to it just in case.
    January 10th - 179.8 - not getting too excited, I see how I can be almost 4 pounds more the next day. Still, glad to be slightly under 180 at least for today : - )
    January 11th - 180.7
    January 12th - 182.4 - I was less disciplined in December and still lost weight, yet this month I am being so careful and am just not dropping weight. I have to stick with it.
