January Thoughts and An Impromptu Weigh-In

by Lisa on Tuesday: Jan 29, 2013

I don’t know about you guys, but it’s hard to believe that January is about to end! That means that it’s officially time to look back at my January mini-goals and see how I did.

Goal #1: Joining Diet Bet – Done! I joined, that’s for sure, and the bet certainly kept me motivated throughout the month to make healthy decisions. I need to submit my official last weight in the next 48 hours, but as of right now I haven’t quite reached the last of my 4%. HOWEVER, this morning I saw the lowest weight on the scale that I’ve seen in quite a while (since mid-November in fact, and even then I only weighed that little for 1 day).

An Impromptu Weigh-In!

Speaking of weights, why not do a weigh in?
Starting weight: 162
Current weight: 156.8

Total weight lost: 5.2 pounds
Weight left to win diet bet: 1.3 pounds
Weight left to reach my goal: 21.8 pounds

So, as you can see, even though it looks like I might not win the bet, I’m beyond happy that I was able to lose more than 5 pounds this month! That’s more than I’ve ever been able to do in one month before while trying to lose weight. I have high hopes that I can continue this trend into February, especially with bootcamp lasting another 7 weeks for me.

Goal #2: Tracking Calories – I did this very consistently for about the first two weeks of the year, and then off and on for another week or so, and then it kind of fell off the map. However, I think it did what I needed it to – got me thinking about making good food choices.

January has been a tough month and I’m happy that I’ve been able to work so hard on all fronts with some results to show for it. I will do an update on my final Diet Bet numbers in my next post!

Did you set any goals for January? How did they go?

  1. you and i are practically the same!
    I weighed 156.4 this morning when I submitted my final weight for diet bet. but normally i am in the low 150s. I am almost back to where i was pre-Costa Rica vacation in November, haha.
    I joined another DietBet for February! I love the motivation to keep losing! You know how much I HATE losing money 😛

      Congrats on the weight loss! I thought about joining another DietBet next month, but I think I might take a month off and then join another for March.
