Wii fit, you shut up!

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

Wow. I haven't written a blog post in nearly a year. Has it gotten worse?


I'm tired of making excuses. Sure, I haven't had a steady job since March of 2009 and I've been laid off twice. Sure I've had an up and down of relationships, moving, and emotions. With that came 20 (or is it 30?) pounds and a whole mess of clothes I can't even squeeze into.

So, thanks to a biggest loser competition between me and my mom (winner gets $100, and without a job we all know I could use it to buy shoes) and a realization that I've spent THOUSANDS on a wardrobe I can't even try to fit into, I have to make a change.

No more eating enough for a small football team. No more spending my entire day on the couch in front of the internet. Less fat. More fit. That's my 2011 motto.

And now, for public humiliation purposes and my own motivation to get me to the after, here's a before picture! Now, I'm more than aware that a lot of girls would smack me in the face hard after seeing this pic and tell me to shut up about whining, but honestly, it doesn't matter how big I am, I'm jiggly. And that's jiggly unhealthy belly fat.

Plus, seriously. I'm really tired of only wearing pants with elastic waists.

    First steps and you'll be fine.

    That Wii Your Shape? I tell her to shut up all the time. It says I'm not doing my arms correctly yet others say I am and it's not recognizing that. LOL Going to try different colored clothing to see if that helps and lighting too.
