March Weight Loss Update

In case you haven't been following along, I've decided to lose 50 lbs this year.  I've already made a little bit of progress in January and February, but this month I hit a snag.  What happened you say?  Life.  The first week and a half I had a deadline I was trying to meet for work.  I ended up scrapping my workouts in favor of writing code into the wee hours of the morning.  Once I got that out of the way I took a half week off because I was exhausted.  Then I got sick, and I've been fighting off a nasty sinus infection that I'm finally almost over. 

"Boo Josh! You're a failure." That's about how I feel, but there is one good thing.  I managed to lose a pound on diet alone.  I might have managed to get out walking with Ashley once a week, so what I managed to do was all diet.  Now, I'm starting off April at 285 lbs.

Now that we established that I effectively did nothing in March, I'm starting April off with renewed vigor.  I'm extremely anxious to get out of the 280's and into the 270's.  I normally stall out with my efforts at about this point, so my morale really needs me to push past this point.  This month I would like to finish at 280 lbs by losing 5 more.  To date, I've lost 11 lbs.
