(at least that’s what I tell myself…)

April was a good test of patience and willpower. I only lost 1.4 pounds for the entire month. It was so tempting to just chuck it all and wallow in a lovely variety of junk food.

But instead I’d tried to think of it as “at goal” and what would I do if this was my goal weight. Even though 211 isn’t my goal, if I never lost another pound it would still be better than all the higher weights I’ve visited. So for April 211 was my goal weight.

Now one week in to May I’ve been rewarded by a 2.8 pound loss. Twice my April total!

Maybe next week it’ll go up, maybe I won’t lose any more for the month. But my patience and perseverance was rewarded and I will try to stay patient and keep persevering.
