Weight coming off

Thursday, December 20, 2012

My Wii Fit says I'm down a pound or so. I can tell you what I'm doing that appears to be working. I am drinking my water. I feel like I am in a swimming pool I drink it so much! I am drinking from 6-10 cups a day. I am taking a lot of restroom breaks but c'est la vie!

I am not grazing. I have had some not-so-great food choices, particularly when I'm not home, but I am not grazing and snacking...well...not without being mindful! I ate a few potato chips last night, but not very many. There was a time when I would have eaten most of a bag! I am trying to fit in vegetables daily. I could do better on that front. I'm trying to keep away from starchy choices and I get tired of salad all the time, but I AM eating more veggies and a few fruits too.

I am getting in my movement. I have been wearing my pedometer. I haven't done any walking in the neighborhood but just doing my around-the-house fitness and going on errands racks up a lot of steps. I have a step in my house and when I am in that part of the house, I go up and down the step 10-20 steps to try to work my legs. I jog in place sporadically. I do activities on Wii Fit Plus for at least 30 minutes and have been known to exceed an hour at times.

I'm taking a fiber supplement. I don't know if I could attribute more action in the bathroom to these supplements, but I have been taking them for about a week. These also have chromium that supposed to help with weightloss. I am taking Omega-3 Fatty Acid supplements and a multivitamin too. I'm thinking about adding a D supplement. My husband takes a lot of supplements. I am not crazy about taking pills but I guess I could take as many as he does too.

I'm getting my 8 hours of sleep. Granted I go to bed late and get up late, but that's still 8 hours!

I am coming to Spark daily. I keep up with my SparkFriends and what they are doing to melt away the pounds. I like to encourage as well as be educated. I also like to log in my water and fitness. I need to do a better job logging in food too. Room for improvement!

What is working for you?

    The next week will be the most challenging I think. Just going to do as you are pretty much - drink a ton of water and exercise so focus on what I can control.

    You are doing great - every pound lost is well - a pound lost! Keep doing the Wii Fit, that's very good for you. If you can just find time to log your food I think you will see where your calories are hiding and you might make different food choices. It works for me. I have lost 18 pounds in three months by logging my food and walking thirty minutes a day most days. That's my secret. Nothing to it!

    Have a Merry Christmas!

    WOW! Congrats on all the prgress and healthy habits you are committed to now!!!! Step by Step you WILL get there! You are doing all the right things! I have to say eating veggies is my least favourite thing about eating healthy but I always remember that Fibrous veggies are the car that takes your fat out your butt!!! So I visualize all my fat sticking to the spinach and going down the toilet! :) Gross huh?! I consider green veggies medicine for a fat butt! You don't like taking medicine but sometimes you have to and it works! :)
    Keep up the FANTASTIC work!!!!!
    Have a very Merry Christmas!!!
