Second monthly weigh in

Last weigh in on 31st Jan was 10 stone 8, today I'm 10 stone 6, only 2 lb lost in Feb but I'm ok with that - I was working long hours through back to back viruses for 3 weeks, stuck to at least 90 % healthy eating but was more focussed on keeping myself going than counting calories and only had the energy to start doing a little excercise last week, so all in all better a little loss than a gain! Feeling better now so hopefully shift a few more lbs in March ☀️

Well done Fran, all losses are to be celebrated, but especially those that fly in the face of adversity! What a great result! March is bound to be bigger and better! :)

Onwards and downwards! :)

Every step and every ounce shows effort Fran, it's not about distance, or weight, it's about heart and you've applied a lot of heart :)

Well done Fran! A loss is a loss is a loss!

Your focus in healthy eating paid dividends. Well done.

Be careful getting back into exercise. I played netball at weekend after my lurgy started over 6 weeks ago, I felt properly better last week but not really well enough i discovered for the netball, it completely and utterly wiped me out! That said it was lovely to be active again. 😊

Thanks Asics! And you're right about the exercise, it's taking quite a while to build energy back up, it's mainly walking I do so I'm slowly increasing distance (work allowing) ☀️

Every pound counts and you have done very well sticking with this whist having some viruses to contend with. Now you are feeling much better I am sure you will see those numbers going down this March :-) Good luck Fran x

Well it is the shortest month even with a leap year. So less time to lose weight! A bit tongue in cheek. But you have lost half a lb a week, which is perfectly respectable when the going gets hard. Hope the very long March gives you a loss you are happier with.

That's a fantastic loss/effort for everything you had to fight against! I probably would have given in and gained 4lb lol Well done :)
