Over the weekend I was so excited and happy. According to my Wii Fit I had lost about four pounds over the past two weeks! I was thrilled! I didn’t get a chance to work out on Saturday but we were gone most of the day running errands or at my kids soccer games.
Getting to today – I picked Monday’s to do my official weigh ins – and I lost .5 pounds since last week.
Yes, just a half a pound – AGAIN!

When you gain weight on the wii fit a menu pops up asking why you think you gained weight – late night snacking, no exercise, even I don’t know is an option. Personally, I think there needs to be an “I’m a woman” option.
Once again – it’s a loss! My weight slowly dropped every day, until it spiked up Sunday, then dropped again today. I know that next week I’ll see a bigger loss.
I was active every day. I did the free walk option and walked for a half hour every day. Most of the week I worked out for an hour, though there was a day when I only did 40 minutes. Today is the start of a new week and I started my new workout video.
I only lasted a half hour of the 45 minute video. I quit when I just couldn’t do it anymore. But it’s an advanced video so I figured I would end up having to stop. And that’s okay! I didn’t push myself too far to the point of getting hurt and I don’t feel discouraged. I feel like I did a half hour of a tough workout! I also did a few exercises on the wii fit.
This week I am going to keep a food diary. I have worked hard at not over eating, not having seconds, and not eating junk (oh yeah, I didn’t have any halloween pumpkins this week!) but I know I could be doing better if all I am losing if a half a pound. Yes I want to see weight loss slow because then it will stay off, but that’s just a little too slow for me.
As for my workouts, I am going to do the video and stick to walking. I am hoping to be able to do a half hour walking before my kids wake up and then do the workout video after they go to school. I know as time goes on I’ll get better at the video so I’m not concerned about quitting if I have to.
