I have lost 5 lbs over the last month. It was hard. I do not exercise more than yoga for 20-30 min a few times a week and hikes on Sundays. I have focused on eating well and only when I feel hungry. When I last lost weight in 2015, I was losing more like 8-10 lbs a month. It is a small success though and my clothes are fitting better because of it.
I am trying my best to go more with the flow this time. We have gone out to eat once a week and sometimes pick up a treat from a local bakery or ice cream shop. I just do not want to drive myself crazy with numbers and guilt. This happiness I have right now is just too important.
My partner is also trying to lose weight now. He is even cutting back big time on his candy addiction for the first time in the 9 years we have been together. Hopefully we will both see small successes within this month of October. I am quite happy with slow progress.
