Well my wife just joined SparkPeople yesterday and I couldn't be prouder of her for taking that step towards being healthy!
I KNOW WE CAN DO THIS... TOGETHER!
Please stop by Cullengirl1216's page if you get a chance and welcome her to the family!

Ok, so today I was really motivated and I actually got up out of bed and grabbed the 3 S's (shirt, shoes and shorts, not in that order) and went out for a walk. About 3 minutes into it I got brave and decided I would make an attempt at jogging. 'Attempt' being the operative word.
My big results.... I made it a whole minute! WOW!!! Talk about a marathon!!! I'm glad that there wasn't anybody out at 530 in the morning cuz they would have had some footage fit for America's Funniest Home Videos! I've got 2 black eyes now from getting hit in the face with my MOOBS!!!!! (For those of you that don't know what a 'moob' is, it's a man boob) I gotta hand it to the ladies... I feel sorry for you! That chunk of sidewalk will never be the same....between my gargantuan feet pounding on the pavement and my moobs smacking the ground... there's some damage.
As if that wasn't bad enough I decided that it would be fun to jog down the home stretch, I made it about another minute and a half... again moobs flapping in the breeze like a kite! Thank god it wasn't windy or I might have lifted off!
All kidding aside... it felt pretty crappy jogging, but it's something that I should try and do a little more of. I don't want to push it right now, just want to do a little at a time.
I'm motivated right now as of this very moment to do it again tomorrow, but we'll have to see what tomorrow brings. In the mean time if anyone knows where I can get a manzier, let me know! LOL!!!
Take care, have a great weekend!!!

Ok, so the last 3 days I have got up around 5:15am to do a little WII FIT step program. Out of the 3 days, guess how many times I actually did the program?!?! 1! I get up all psyched up and ready to fire up the WII and I come downstairs and park my big A$$ in front of the computer.
I wish it was a little lighter out in the morning cuz I'd probably go for a walk, but I just don't seem to have the devotion to get out there and move. I don't have any problems with the food, I'm staying within my ranges without any issues, I am drinking more than 8 cups of water a day, I haven't had a soda in 5 weeks, and I've lost almost 15 lbs. It's just that I can't seem to fit that one more piece of the puzzle into my routine.
I want to start a streak of walking every day, but I need something to push me out the door and make me walk.
I think if I can get this going and do it every day for a few weeks I'll be more inclined to do it..
Maybe I need to start the couch to 5k program!?! I haven't run 3 miles since I was in high school and I don't even want to think about how long ago THAT was. I'll get there, and when I get on the exercise kick I'll get even better results!

I had a much better weigh in this week than I thought I was going to have. I stuck with the calories and stuff, just had a feeling that it wasn't going to be good. I was pleasantly surprised that I lost another 2.4 pounds! WOO HOO!!!
That makes a total of 14.2 pounds in 5 weeks! I couldn't be happier with those numbers. I can see the difference and feel the difference already. I've been exercising more than usual (heck, just exercising once a month is more than usual) and I don't feel that bad afterwards. Granted I'm not doing anything like an aerobics class, but I'm gonna just stick with some walking and the occasional WII FIT until I get into the 10% loss realm (about 27lbs).
I also go to the doctor June 3rd so I don't want to get to crazy with exercise until I get the OK from the doc.
I've never been so sure that I was going to get to my goals before, I've tried to lose weight many many times. Mt wife and I did Weight Watchers before our daughter was born and I had lost about 56lbs. Once my wife got pregnant, I put it all back on, and then some! I was on SparkPeople a few years ago and stuck around for a while, then hit a plateau and faded away and within 3 or 4 weeks gained all the weight back. I'm NOT going to do that this time. I WILL SUCCEED!!!
I'm not going to let anything get in my way so if there are any obstacles out there that plan on hosing up my progress, ya better back your A$$ up or prepare to get flattened out like a pancake!!!! THIS MEANS YOU MR. FAT!! You're going down, and you're gonna go down hard! (Do I hear the Rocky theme somewhere?!?!) When I'm done I'm gonna 'eat lightning and crap thunder!' Well... I'm 'gonna fly now!'
Take care fellow SparkPeople, keep on keepin' on, and don't stop moving!!!
