I feel like I'm making progress losing weight. I started noticing a few days ago that my body felt less jiggly and more toned. I also noticed the other day that it was easier for me to walk up the three flights of steps to my office. I work on the 4th floor(and one of those floors has an auditorium so it is extra tall) and try to use the stairs to get a few more steps in. Usually by the time I get to the top I'm huffing and puffing, but it hasn't been so bad the past few days. And this evening according to Wii Fit (the closest thing I have to a scale in my house), I came in at 169.6! This is the first time I've been under 170 since our wedding. So this definitely feels like a victory.

To make it even better, this was after I had a couple desserts at a dinner picnic this evening. So it wasn't just an empty stomach. Since I've been using the WiiFit often and weighing myself more, I've been noticing swings in weight. For example I could tell that our dinner out at the Melting Pot made me gain 1.5 pounds! Luckily that was only a temporary upswing and now things are back down and down even farther. So I'm hoping this is not just a downswing but part of the real trend.

It has been hard to wake myself up early to attend these morning exercise classes I started going to before work. But I think they really work for me and it's a way to get some exercise without losing motivation after a long day at work.


  1. congratulations - it sounds like you are doing everything right! I know what you mean about those odd fluctuations in weight. I always put on about a pound when I am excercising - I think it's the water I drink while I am doing it!

  2. congrats! That is awesome, nice to see hard work paying off. :)

  3. YAY for you! good job! you must feel great! it's so nice when you can see the hard work paying off :)

  4. Congrats. We love wii and wii fit. My wife also uses (not free) which is great at calculating calorie intake and burn off. Both things help her a lot.
