Dust bunnies under the couch....

A friend's new Wii Fit reminded me that it had been a while since I had stepped on mine for even just a weight check. 3 months exactly. So I pulled it out from under the couch, dust bunnies at all. A 10.2 loss. But the obnoxious Wii Fit voice loves to tell me I am Obese. Tell me something I don't know. My BMI is 32. I've got another 15 lbs to lose before I get to just be Overweight.

Back in April, I started taking weekly shots of myself. But I stopped on mid-May, as I was on a 2 month plateau until recently. Plus my hard drive crashed and I lost a lot of pictures. But I decided to start up again today since the scale now says 199.2. The last time I took pictures I was 206.8. Sorry, I am new at the 'take a picture in the mirror' thing. I have other pictures I took with my tripod, but they aren't internet worthy.

So here I am at 199.2 (though I did have cake and ice cream this morning for breakfast - yeah, I know. Not healthy. Wednesday was my husband's birthday and for 2 nights I ate cake and ice cream with a 4 year old and a 16 month old yelling in my ear. I wanted to eat it with no sounds around at all. And why wait for lunch?)

On New Years Day the scale said 221.8. But really I was about 218. When we started WW At Work in February, my weight on their scale was 219.4 (when I was 216 at home). I didn't really lose any weight for 6 weeks, until after my son's 1st birthday. And in the last 4 months I've lost 17 lbs. But I've got 50+ to go and I want to do it by my son's 2nd birthday on St Patrick's Day. So I've got to step it up, and thus the reason for finally starting to blog about it.

Finally time....

I've been contemplating starting a blog for months now. But instead I've spent the time lurking in other healthy living blogs. But now is the time. Something about the scale hitting 199.6 and my 40th birthday just weeks away, for me to say 'Now is the time'
