Sucess of the week!

It's true, it's true! For the past two days, I have NOT stepped on the scale (or the Wii Fit for that matter). I'm not saying that this is an entirely good "success" but I can say that's it's taken my focus off of the scale - a little bit. The last two times I had been on the scale, my weight was up by .2 or .4 pounds. I know, I know, that's not much. We WLSers typically have some stalls and even slight increases, but that gets a little discouraging. I've tried to tell myself that I won't check the actual "weight" on the Wii fit, but some how, I find myself pushing that button as if it's an automatic response. Well, I decided that maybe not getting on it was going to be the best thing for a couple of days until I could really not worry about what that number says until Tuesdays (my weigh accounting day). So, anyway, I don't know exactly how much I weigh today and I'm OK with that. I think I may be growing up a little!

The other success I've had this week is with water! I'm drinking more water! Yeehaw!! This is a good thing for me because I've struggled with getting the water in SINCE May 22, 2008! But I think I'm getting better, this makes me happy. What doesn't make me happy (which coincides with the extra water) is that NOW, for the past 3 nights, I've had to wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom! That is NOT me! The only other time, in my life, that I've consistently had to wake up in the middle of the night to use the facilities was when I was prego! So, it feels good to get the water in, but it doesn't feel good to get up at unGodly hours to get the water out!

Next, I went grocery shopping last night. I bought things to make some yummy recipes that were posted by my cyber-friend ( - she's amazing and so are her recipes. I've got at least three to make this weekend! YIPEE!!!

And the last big success of the week (so far), I got my iPod all charged and ready to go for my new found exercise regime (that hasn't yet started but will be my success for next week)! I'm super duper excited. I downloaded some "workout mixes" from The Biggest Loser website (I love that show) and from another fitness guru. Hopefully the fresh, new, hip, high energy music will go right to my thighs (or take away from them). I'm excited. I even brought the iPod to work today to "test" out the new tunes. Can't wait to get started! I WILL be posting the success of exercise next week. I'm determined!

I look forward to an exciting, adventurous weekend of finding more and more successes on my journey. I can't wait to share!

yvThe wii fit has a scale? That is pretty cool. I never knew! Maybe I should get one, so I could ignore it? :)

Oh, this thing is all about the scale. It's in the "body test" and when you step on it either says "great" or "oooohhhh". It's quite interesting. Honestly, you don't HAVE to view the scale, it WILL give you your BMI and then you get the option to view weight, but hello, how can you see "weight" and not think, "hmmm, I wonder how much I weigh right now". It's awful! But at the same time, it's great. It makes exercise out of games. If anyone could do it, the Wii could do it!!!!

What has the wii said today? Have you been back on?

As a matter of fact, I did get back on - today! And I was down! Yippe.. unfortunately, it doesn't count because it's not Tuesday! :-(
