I was dissapointed when stepped n the scale this morning. Gaining is incentive to push harder. I started my new shift at work this month; I am still trying to figure out my eating pattern.
I wasn't quite sure what the scale would hold for me this month because life changed a bit in March. In March I finished my classroom training of my new job and started my on the job training. The on the job training has required a 180 degree shift in my life pattern; I go to bed at 8:30pm and get up at 2:00am to start work at 3:30am. I am having "lunch" at 7:30am I haven't figured out if I should be eating breakfast foods or lunch foods. (For the record, lunch foods) My goal throughout training was to bring my own lunches and I have done that everyday. I find it helps with portion control.
I will take the three pounds. Total lost: 9 lbs. Total Still Needed to Reach Goal: 6
1st Month to Lose My Freshman 15 I am about 2 lbs down. I wish it was better; honestly I was excepting to have gained weight. I wasn't diligent on my treadmill. I had days I ate like crap.
I had to meet my new doctor and when I got on her scale mid January it said 208. WHAT?!? Wait! I had my snow boots, my phone in my pocket, and I had a bladder full of water in anticipation of having to provide a urine sample (which didn't happen) Maybe that played into the higher weight. I am only going by my scale at home to keep consistent.
Plan for February:
