Healthy Low Carb/IIFYM Lifestyle Monthly Weigh-In - March 1st - Month One
I am thrilled with my weight loss and measurement loss for the month of February! For most of the past month I felt like I wasn't losing enough and that low carb wasn't working for me because instead of looking at the big picture I was looking at the weight fluctuations on the scale every few days and it was driving me crazy and making me seriously doubt myself.
But when I looked back at the whole month today I saw great progress in all areas so I think the decision to weigh in once a month is a really good one. I think it will let me step back from the number on the scale and stop obsessing about every little change and fluctuation!
On top of the visible loss I'm also eating healthier than I have in a long time. I have 2-3 vegetables every day and I'm actually enjoying them and I've replaced my protein powder with actual food (shrimp, tuna and rotisserie chicken are big here right now) and I feel really good!
I have a lot of energy, I'm getting stronger with every workout and I just feel good about myself! I'm planning on continuing all this through the month of March and I'll be weighing in again and taking new measurements on April first!
