My weight loss battle is still very much alive. I decided that this was the year to reclaim my health and fitness. Every day I keep pressing towards my goal of 250 lbs by the end of 2008. So, how am I doing? In February, I lost 4 pounds which is one freaking pound shy of the goal I set for myself. I'm not exactly sure why I wasn't able to get that extra pound since at one point in the month I was 2 lbs lighter. Anyway, it is what it is, so I'm starting March at 286 lbs.
I can't get too down about that extra pound because this past month I've experienced some changes that I like. I'm down a notch on my belt! Also, my knee and foot haven't given me nearly as much trouble. I'm starting to think that pain was due to some worn out shoes I was wearing to work, but losing the weight can't hurt.
For March, I'm going to try to lose 5 lbs again. February was tough, but I think my increase in activity will help me along to meet my goal. I feel like my diet is mostly good, but I'll be working to improve a few things this month. For those of you not keeping score, I've lost 10 lbs so far this year.
