This is cross-posted from geekintoshape.com. Since I started this weight loss goal on this blog, I'll continue to post my monthly updates through the end of the year. If you want to read more about my weight loss adventures, please head on over to Geek Into Shape.
So, last month I sucked it up and only lost one pound. Since I decided to run a 5K race today (more on that later), I spent all of August getting ready for it so I wouldn't die. 3 runs a week sure does help the weight come off! See for yourself.
269.2 lbs! That makes my weight loss for the month about 5.5 lbs. I'm very satisfied with the results and hope that I can continue my momentum into September.
It's not all good news though. I fell off towards the end of the month due to me stressing out. I ended up eating out a lot more than usual at lunch as a result. Also, the running makes me want to snack more and that's not too good either.
My plan for this month is to continue with the running and to try to cut back my eating to what it was. For this month my goal is to lose another 5 lbs.
