Weigh-in Sunday #1 -- January 2, 2011

Hello, everyone! It's Weigh-In Sunday!!

I weighed myself at 9:30am this morning, and I am SUPER HAPPY to report that I have lost 4.5 pounds!! Can you stand it? The video is below to support my claim. However, I'm not sure why the Wii Fit recording system stated that I'd gained 14.5 pounds. Maybe they're still going off the last goal I had. Who knows.

I am quite sure that when I weighed myself last week, it read "294." So, I'm going with it. The video I shot this morning now proves I weigh 289.5 pounds. Which is nothing to be proud of, but shedding almost 5 pounds without really doing much but avoiding soda and staying within my Weight Watchers points balance is pretty damn cool.

My youngest son and I are going to go shopping today for a new workout DVD, since he got hold of the last one and scratched it up so bad that it almost killed our DVD player. I may look into the Jillian Michales Wii Ultimate Fitness game too . . . Or, for more fun, Wii Dance Party . . . :)

Oh! I almost forgot! I've also uploaded my First Official "Before" Photos.

UGH. How I let myself get this way . . . .

Anyhoo, they're over on the "Visual Progress" page. I'll post those monthly as I continue towards my goal to lose 135 pounds before I turn 40.

As you can tell by the photos, I've got a LONG way to go, but I'm motivated . . . LET'S DO THIS!


  1. Congratulations on your weight loss! I followed Susan over here and I'm so glad that I did. I know exactly what you mean and I need to do something about my weight, as well. I set up a blog ( last summer with the idea that some friends would act as accountability partners but it never seemed to happen.

    So, I guess what I'm saying is that if you're still looking for partners, I would love it if you counted me in. We both have about the same amount of weight to lose and we both have boys named Ben (though mine is nearly 11 now!).
