Today marks the halfway point of my quest to lose forty pounds by my 40th birthday. How am I doing so far?
The good news is that I have indeed lost weight: twelve pounds since January 17th. The bad news is that I haven't lost enough weight to keep me on track towards my goal: I should be twenty pounds lighter by now.
Obviously, losing twelve pounds is better than not losing any weight at all, or, even worse, gaining. I'm not giving up, but I do need to work harder over the summer if I am going to reach my goal. I'm eating the right foods; I think I need to control my portions better and get more exercise.
I'll be back with a final report on my birthday.
