I am down to 167.8 as of this morning which means I have slipped into a new ‘decade’ since my last weigh-in. I am less than two pounds away from being able to say that I have lost one hundred pounds from my highest weight! I know that the numbers are not the only thing that is important on this journey, but I have to admit that I am feeling pretty happy about this week’s loss. It’s been a bit of an emotional go of things lately and – right or wrong – this is a welcome pick-me-up.
This is also the first weigh-in of the month and, as usual, the time I choose to update my measurements and progress picture. The one thing I noticed this time that was significantly different is that my arms went down twice as much as they have in past months – I think I am safe in attributing that result to the strength training portions of the 30 Day Shred.

This month I am having a little difficulty seeing the changes from my last photograph apart from those in my aforementioned arms. That could easily be because of the state of mind I am still in however. Nevertheless, I am feeling like January was a successful month despite all the ups and downs. February is much shorter though, so I will have to make sure that I stay on the ball to see even more developments in just four weeks.
