I know hubby would say to focus on the fact that I weigh less at the end of the month than I did at the start. It's true, I have lost weight this month but it's still the worst month since the start of my weight-loss on 19th August 2013. You get used to nice big drops in the first half of the journey and while I knew that couldn't continue indefinitely it still came as a shock how many ups and downs June would bring.
So where am I at today? I weighed in at 86.6 kg (190.92 lb) which is down just 0.5 kg (1.1 lb) from last week, and 43.7 kg (96.34 lb) overall. Not bad for 10.5 months. But June was a horrible month with pre-menstrual weight gain starting early, then a drop when I started followed by another gain during ... it nearly drove me crazy.
88.1 kg (194.23 lb) on 31st May
86.6 kg (190.82 lb) on 30th June
-1.5 kg ( - 3.31 lb) for the month.
That's a lousy month to be sure. But I am not changing diet-wise. This works and I gotta remain focused. I am, however, changing up my activity. This week I am going back to Turbo Jam and adding Callanetics. My heart has not been in the running in this cold weather and I have struggled to run 30 minutes for a couple of weeks now. I am not giving up as I don't want to lose the progress I have made. I ran some intervals on the weekend and beat my pace record getting 6:57 ... I think my lowest was 7:21 before. I just need to do something different for a while. I will come back to it.
So that's where I'm at. Here's to July being a much better month!
