Is it time? A weigh in update.

It's Tuesday and that means I stepped on the Wii Fit this morning to have my weekly weigh in update. There I stood, not meeting my goal of losing 2 lbs in 2 weeks. Sad was I. The good news is that I am at 180. Not 180.5, not 180.25, but 180. So, this means, that if I lose ANYTHING at all I will be in the 170s - which is territory never seen since my days in elementary school. Can you believe that?

So, I'm not going to lie, I was disappointed. I had made some positive changes last week by exercising and even bringing back the protein shakes into my diet (something I've let slip that I shouldn't have). I'm not saying that I'm not happy about where I am, but I'd just be a little happier to see changes. I'm not ready for it all to stop as it does for so many people. I have goals, I have things I need to achieve and I need to be reinforced (see progress) to get me there. I will keep on and push through. I will succeed.

This week, I plan to kick up the exercise. I will be on the elliptical at least 3 times this week(for intentional exercise) and I will get on the Wii Fit for at least two exercise sessions. I will consume a protein shake after my workout to get the required amount of protein in. And I will have a positive attitude about it all.

Here's to getting to the 170s!!!

You know... adding work out helps tone the muscles in your body and a half a pound is nothing to balk at, since you are probably adding cool muscles! You watch, you'll be tiny before you know it, heck you already are!

It's true, it's true. I know these things, it's just hard to see them in the middle of the struggle. Thank you for the encouragement. It will go a LONG way!!! Hopefully right onto the elliptical.
