May's almost over & I didn't make my goal. (I have 2 more days to lose 5 more pounds) So- I'm alittle disappointed. I have been pretty good this week. I used the wiifit & ate pretty healthy. I had a piece of pizza & alittle salad at 8:30 pm on Tuesday night. I know I shouldn't have so I did 30 minutes free step aerobics to make up for it. All week I really haven't lost any weight, I've been up & down. So-now that it's Friday & todays weigh in counts- I'm at 23.64 & 138. Really about the same as last week.(23.67 & 138) I think I've lost 1/2 pound. That really is making me rethink & try something eles. I love the Wiifit & will continue to do it. I like weighing in everyday & doing my 30 minute routine but I'm thinking that I need to do more. I'm going to start counting calories & make sure I burn enough calories & do enough activity to lose more weight. I know that it's harder to lose those last 10-15 pounds than the 1st ones. I guess I need to try harder. I'm going to stick with it & try some new stuff too. I'm thinking that besides being more aware of what I'm eating, I need to work-out longer. I would love to get the EA Sports Active Game but at this time I don't have the money to spend on it. I'm going to set a new goal for June & try to lose 10 more pounds.(That was my goal for May & I lost 5 pounds) I should be happy & I am But...
It's that time again. Time to be accountable for the week. I guess You know why I'm here today. Last week I was alittle disappointed about not losing but a 1/2 a pound. This week I've done better. I'm down to 138 and by BMI is 23.67 Finally I'm moving down alittle in the Normal Group. I was at the Top of the Normal Range and my mii's moved down (about a 1/4) Not quite where I want to be Yet. I've lost 4.5 pounds for the month of May. My goal is 10 pounds by the end of the month. I don't think I will make it. But I'll keep trying. I am still Happy- I've lost 19 pounds total & I need new clothes. I've been waiting to buy new shorts & tops until I can fit into the next size. My favorite pair of jean shorts are way too big. (Last year they were getting tight & now they can almost come off w/out un-buttoning them). It's a shame I let myself get out of shape to begin with. I know that it's alittle easier to gain weight than it is to lose it. Now- my hubby wants me to wear a Bikini. I think he forgot about the Stretch Marks from our 2 children. I've lost weight but don't think I'll ever see myself in a Bikini-I like to wear the tankini (skirt & tank top)It covers alittle more and it's alittle less revealing. I'm not 18 anymore-that was a few years ago. LOL Seeing I'm getting ready for my 20th year school reunion. I have until August 1st to be looking my best. I guess this will be my motivation now. I don't think I will ever be the size I was when I graduated or weigh that little ever again. That's what getting older does to you. I can handle that. I just want to be in shape and have energy to do the things I like too. I want to be healthy for myself and my family. I know that I'm happier when I feel better about myself too. And my family is Happier when I am. See You next week. Have a Good Holiday Weekend.
It's Friday Again. I'm here. I am reporting that my BMI is 24.05 & I'm 141 today. I really haven't made much progress this week. Since I started again for May-I've done OK. I have been weighing myself everyday this week but not doing my normal 30 minutes plus routine. I have been alittle busy & my back's still sore. I shouldn't have any excuses. I need to get motivated & lose more weight or I won't make my goal of 10 pounds by the end of the month. I've lost 2 1/2 pounds total for May & only a 1/2 a pound this week. I am hoping (will need to get more time on the wiifit)to lose the other 7.5 pounds needed my the end of May. I need to Just Do It. (Now I sound like the Nike Commercial) I know that I will feel better about myself & be happier if I was alittle thinner,more toned & lighter on the scales. I am happy with my progress-just this week I feel like I really haven't gotten any further. It seems like I've slowed down & I don't like that. I know I will need to work harder. Next week I am hoping (will be working harder) to have a better report. I am thinking that I need to do more activity (exercise) & be more careful about what I'm eating.
It's Friday Again-Another post & weigh in. Since I pledged to start trying again for the month of May-I've been doing ok. To start off May 1st(last Friday was good)Then over the weekend I was very busy and ate alot of whatever I wanted. I had pizza & chips & more snacks at two different parties,then I had a snack/dinner (small KFC mashed potatoe bowl) at 9:30 pm Saturday night. Then Sunday came & more parties to attend-I had ice cream cake & regular white cake & I didn't even exercise or weigh in on Saturday or Sunday. So here it comes Monday..I thought I didn't even want to get on the scale. (I was thinking I gained alot) I was surprised!!! I didn't gain any weight. Wow I was so happy. Then on Tuesday I weighed even less I was down to my lowest & Wednesday back up again. So-here we are on Friday I'm at 24.16 & 141.5 which is losing 1 1/2 pounds & my bmi going down. I'm pretty happy with myself (even after eating like a pig last weekend) I still lost alittle & to be honest I didn't exercise much. That's because on Tuesday Morning I woke up & my back was killing me. I could hardly walk & only weighed in & on Wed. I tried alittle more but was still sore. I'm finally feeling better & today I had a very good work-out. I opened the 10 minute hula hoop & didn't do to bad. I got 3470-4 stars but not close to my highest. I've done pretty well on the other aerobics & finally opened the boxing today. I'm going to try to eat better this weekend & do more exercising. I would still like to tone up more & lose 10 pounds before summer. I definatelly know that if I want to eat junk food or snacks it should be done in moderation & try to do more physical activity. I really like the support & motivation from the wiimommies, other wiimommies forum members & the wefit families. Please keep up the good job & stay fit. I have to give a special shout out to my sister Colleen who's doing Awesome using her wiifit. Check out her progress, she's lost over 30 pounds & looks GREAT !!! She has really been trying pretty hard & I'm proud of her. She keeps me motivated too.
Today's May 1st & A new start for me. Ever since I came back from vacation I really haven't been putting in as much effort to lose more weight and exercise. So- it's a new month-what a great time for a new start. If you've read my posts -you would know that I don't own a WiiFit. I would love one but haven't had the extra money to purchase one(since my parents live next door & I use theirs) So- my mom hasn't been using hers-& she told me to take hers home. I did today but the only thing is, that I have to start over & re-open everything. I think this is a great opportunity for me to get back into my routine. Or better yet- start a new one. I am going to weigh in every morning & I am going to do at least 30 minutes or more at least 5 days a week. I like to do my workout-10 minutes hula hoop, advanced step & the 10 minutes boxing, then whatever eles. I will need to open these advanced things now so this will be good for me(because I like the harder ones (hula,boxing,& free step). I am going to find extra time & do more exercises & I need to get back to not eating at night. This has been my downfall lately. So-today I set a new goal & would like to lose 10 more pounds by summer. Since I am starting all over again I can keep good records of my Bmi & Weight. Today I am starting at 24.43 & 143. I Am proud of my progress but I am hopeful that I can get healthier,look thinner & more toned up. I will be reporting ever week in my Fitness Friday post so please help me to stay motivated. I love the Wiimommies and the wefitfamilies forums. Everyone try to eat healthy and exercise. (Using the Wiifit is Fun-You don't realize it's exercise) Also as the nice weather is approaching I will be going for walks. I hope you will too. Before I go I would like to mention that I have gotten quite a few compliments from people I see regularly about my weight loss. I'm glad they noticed. You wouldn't think that after losing 14 pounds it would be noticed. But it was. Thanks...Their compliments make me want to stay with it & lose more.
