Feeling Great...But...

Monday, February 06, 2012

Well...Today is day 36 or 37 of my new start. It's going great! Except for one thing....I've actually gained weight(just a tine bit!) instead of losing. Clothes are fitting better so INCHES must be shedding.( I can't measure. I become obsessed with what the measuring tape says. It always leads to disappointment so I've learned to just say No to measuring.) Pants fit quite a bit different than they did at the beginning of January...but still no weight loss. I'm supposing that the weight loss will come. I know that I can exercise much longer that I did when I started. I couldn't even get through One single song ( WII, Just Dance 3) without feeling winded. Now I can do Many songs in a row! So I'm waiting for the day that will come when the scale reflects what I see. :-)
Have a great week everyone!! WE can do it!! emoticon

    No one can measure me the same 5 minutes apart so I just don't do it and go by how the clothes are fitting.

Here I am. The beginning of a new year and a routine!! Yay. I purchased a WII for my kids...or so I THOUGHT it was for my kids. A friend gave me a WII Fit to go with it and BAM! I'm hooked. Never thought I would EVER buy any type of video game anything....never saw a reason too. You only sit, sit, sit so there was no reason to sit MORE! Well....when I noticed that my kids were gaining a bit of weight I thought that a WII might be a fun way for us home-schoolers to get some PE in each day-particularly when it's cold and rainy out. Well....We are doing great! My kids are loosing weight and I'm not loosing weight much but I am losing INCHES all over!! It's been kind strange and well....unexpected. I'll take inches lost anytime though. A Very weird twist...I've actually GAINED weight since just after the first week but have lost +++INCHES! Please explain that to me! :-)
Have a super February everyone!!

    Muscle weighs more than fat, so perhaps you are developing muscle. ALWAYS a good thing! Congrats on getting more active, and keep up the good work! When you do all the right things, the weight will follow. But at least you have the progress of inches for now! I'll take it anyday!

Well.....seems like the story of my life...

I get knocked down-but I get up again!! It seems as thought Every spring I get into not only spring cleaning my house but I guess I spring clean myself also...Or at least I attempt to. This time the whole family really seems to be on board with eating healthier so I think it'll be much easier to stick to it. We've been on the Spark for not quite 3 weeks and we are all losing weight. The clothes I JUST bought myself 2 weeks ago is very loose and looks a LOT better. My daughters tight clothes, which she was about to give away, fit very nicely-even loose! She feels great too! My husband feels better and is sleeping better as well. We didn't THINK we were eating That badly but it's funny how fried food are so quick to prepare and end up on your dinner plate much more often than you intended!! :-( Well...The Spark really helps us keep track of what we eat and it has been a great help on our path to a healthier us! Please keep us in your prayers..I'll keep all of my Spark friends in my prayers too! Let's keep the Spark GOING!! :-)
