Damn, I'm so close! This month was a good weight loss month for me. I just weighed in at 281 lbs which makes my weight loss from last month 4 pounds. I was shooting for 5 lbs this month, but it didn't quite happen. It's okay though, because I'm still losing weight. Any month I can record a weight loss is a good one for me.
What did I do right this month?

My diet is spot on. I'm very proud of how well I'm managing my food and drink intake. I still have times when I eat too much or eat something bad, but for the most part I'm good. I'd say my diet is about 80/20 right now. 80% of the time I'm eating very healthy and the other 20%, not so much. The good news is that I don't have to feel guilty about the 20% because of my progress. It keeps me from getting frustrated and that lack of frustration is enabling me to move forward.
Where did I fall short this month?
Well, yesterday I ate a big ol' mess of fried food for lunch and that most likely didn't help my weigh in today. Also, I still feel like I could be exercising more. I feel a little weak at times, so that tells me I need more. Fortunately it's warmer outside, and that means I have to mow the lawn and tend to the garden.
What's in store for this month?
May is my birthday, so I'll be doing nothing spectacular for that. I might enjoy a slice of cake and chill with some friends. I'm still in the 280's and that sucks. I'll be out to remedy that problem this month and make a dive for the 270's in a major way. 276 lbs is my target weight for the end of May. So far this year I've lost 15 pounds.
