Weigh In #1: Plus Size Bloggers Tracking Challenge: Bye Bye Booties! and Slimmer This Summer Check In

I had a pretty good week.  I had a bit of a problem keeping track of my food.  I didn't always remember what I had eaten by the time I got a chance to get on the computer.  I got it as accurate as I could and posted it last night.  My water intake wasn't quite as much as it should have been for the challenge, but I was getting 8 cups in a day.  We took a walk every day this week, I believe.  If hubby was home we usually got in an extra walk after the children were in bed (big brother was here in case of problems), and if he was working I usually took turns with Steven stepping/jogging on the Wii Board for 30 minutes while watching tv.  Don't let the picture confuse you, I forgot to get on the Wii a few days.  Oops

I was thrilled to see a loss this week.  I was so close to 220 I bought myself that outfit I had thought abut buying for my birthday.  Yep, two months later than I wanted to, but I am looking at 220 on the scale.  I realize it is .8 more, but I am thrilled that I am losing again.  I am so thankful for these challenges.

  1. Woo hoo!!! Congrats on the weight loss!! You are doing great. Don't let it get you down that you didn't keep track like you wanted. I am like that sometimes. I have started keep a small notebook close by so I can take notes through out the day. :) Keep it going!!! Great work!

  2. Congrats on the great loss! My Wii board has been neglected lately I'm afraid :-( Perhaps I should pay him some attention tonight!

  3. I keep my food/water log in the kitchen with a pencil so I can write down each thing I am eating as I get my meal prepared. The "teens" on the scale are next, then one-derland will be right around the corner. Keep up the good work.

  4. FANTASTIC weight loss, congrats !!

    I was gung-ho on my exercise bike last week and this week I'm looking at it with loathing. So I'm wondering if I should get wii fitness. I have a wii. Do you enjoy the exercises? Or are they drudgery?
