Weekly Accountability in March

Hey! How was your weekend? My weekend was pretty great! More about that later, though. Today, I wanted to share my latest YouTube video with you! 

If you don't already know, I have a YouTube channel for my blog. My goal for March is to post weekly weigh-in videos to help keep myself accountable this month and so, you'll be hearing from me weekly over there {at GoalOfLosing}.

In my first weigh-in video, recorded on March 1st, I shared my weigh-in for the month as well as my goal for the month. I've shared the full video for you to watch below but, if you don't have 5 minutes to watch it, scroll down for the summary.

In January, I lost 10 pounds and, not in the best way. I started depriving myself of certain foods {like chocolate!} and I would go to bed hungry for the sake of reaching that 10 pound weight-loss goal. Did I reach my goal? Yes! Was it fun? No!

Not only was it not fun, it wasn't realistic for long-term success. In February, I gained most of my weight back because I basically went on a free-for-all, eating all of the foods that I was depriving myself of in January.

I so know better than this but, it happened. Now, I'm 'fessing up and I'm going to make some changes so it doesn't happen again.

On March 1st, I weighed in at 244.9 lbs. I do not have a specific weight-loss goal for the month, my only goal is that my weight goes down. How? Well, I am going to focus on using moderation instead of deprivation, I'll be drinking more water and getting more active.

This month, I am going to focus on my daily habits more than the weight on the scale. While I will be working on losing weight, the work is going to be done in my daily habits.
