I'm so happy to have lost a decent amount of weight! This means that I lost a total of 7.4 lbs in February which is great even though some was water weight. I'm guessing that the weight loss will continue to be slow from here on out but I'll take it anyway. Slow is fine. And now there's only 3.8 lbs to go until my pre-Christmas weight!
This week has gone well. I made a few small changes in my eating plan that seem to be helping the scale move better and leave me feeling better. I went back up slightly on protein because I need more now that I'm working out with weights 4-5 days a week and cardio for 3 days a week but I got rid of the Atkins shakes completely and now drink the homemade protein shakes. The interesting thing is that as soon as I stopped the Atkins shakes the scale started to move down again. Maybe it's a coincidence or maybe there was something in those shakes that slowed me down. Whatever it is, I'm done with them and I get way more protein with the ones I make myself anyway.
I also finally took my measurements and, as expected, they went up :(. Obviously they were going to go up some thanks to the post-Christmas binge but every large body part went up by an inch and calves and arms went up by 0.2 and 0.3 inches. It's frustrating but it should get better from here. I want to go back to taking the measurements every month again so that's the plan whether or not the scale moves.
Here are the basic ones and more complete ones are on my "weigh-ins and measurements" page.
