Walking month end check in..........

How did you do during the month of February?

I managed to walk 102.78 miles this past month.  I walked like a crazy person over the past few days to get me past my 100 mile goal.  I have to be more consistent with this walking, rather than cramming it in during the last few days of the month.

I was lucky though, as we have had some lovely weather which has made walking a joy.  My year to date total is 216.53 miles.

Now for my weight loss for the month.  The other day I mentioned it was non existent for February.  Well in my peri-menopause brain fog that I seem to be permanently in I thought I had lost more than I had last month.  When I checked back to see how much I had lost overall, it turns out I have lost another 4 lbs this month, to bring my total weight loss to 39 1/2 lbs.  Drat, half a pound off the 40 lb mark.  

I have been at this weight loss, exercise thing for eight months now.  So as you can see I am in the slow and steady lane, rather than the quick and fast lane.  Which I personally think is a better way, as my body is adapting better to all the changes I have been making.  Which is giving me positive results.

One of the down sides though of losing weight is my clothes are all getting too big, but I am between sizes so want to wait before I buy anything else new. 

So my goals for March are to walk the 100 miles (hoping for more) and lose 5 1/2 lbs.

I am excited to hear how everyone else did?

Wow! Well done, Gill! You're doing fantastic - I really need to get a fitbit to join the 'club', but have made a deal with a colleague to buy her cross trainer from her for £50 instead. I've got a pedometer on my iPod which I hope will count that sort of workout as steps which I can accumulate as well. We'll see! Keep up the great work xx

Hello, I am not a knitter but I have just signed up to follow your blog because I think your weight loss journey will be an inspiration to me. I live in the U.S. and found you via Ilona.

Hi Gill, I have walked 107 miles this month. Its been a slog through early Feb, but I have had some great walks the last few days with the warmer weather. Happy walking.

Slow and steady is the best. Way to go.

God bless.

Very well done! I have tried to get out to walk as well, but the weather this month is not cooperating. It is slow going.

Well done. Are you on a diet to loose the weight. Just curious, I watch what I east but the scales are still showing the same. Gotta get out there and walk more I guess. Bit difficult as my Mum is in hospital and it is a hour ride there and another back home and I do this three times a week, my sister does the opposite days and neither one of us goes on Sunday.

Slow and steady definitely wins this race - as does lifestyle changes rather than "a diet", which I guess you are also aware of by now! I was truly astonished quite what a different "Eat a bit less and move a bit more" made and I LOVE my fitbit now - such a great tool to spur us on!
