The results are in!

  • Weekly Weigh-In #11: 228.9 lbs.
  • Last week’s weight: 230.7 lbs.
  • Gain/loss of: -1.8 lbs.
  • Weekly average lost: 2.2 lbs.

I’m down almost 2 lbs. for the week so I’m pretty happy about that. It’s not exactly where I want to be but hey, it’s definitely not a gain, either.

On the exercise front I continue to spend at least 30-45 minutes a night doing Wii Fit aerobics, yoga and strength training. I avoid the balance games because they are, for all intents and purposes, pretty dull. I know I said I’d try this for a week instead of the sit-ups but I think I’m going to stick with this one a while.

Speaking of physical activity, I’ve given up on the Ab-Lounge. I tried it for a week and realized that it didn’t work as well as real sit-ups (duh) and didn’t seem to help me lose anything. So it’s now hanging from a hook in the garage waiting for somebody to take it. Any takers? Maybe I’ll eBay it as “The Official Ab-Lounge Used on 200by40!!! L@@K!!! ONE OF A KIND!!!

Um, maybe not.

And since I’m sticking to the Wii Fit thing, I’ve chopped my daily walk from 1.5 miles to 1 mile (for the time being). I figure since I’m doing the extra 30-45 minutes per night of sweating, walking up to the sixth floor of my office building and staying busy with the kid when I get home, it’s not going to hurt me much.

Food…yes, that. I’m still keeping everything under control and today’s lunch–or last night’s dinner–feels like it will sustain me for the rest of the day. In fact I’m very full and may only have a banana between now and the time I have dinner.

And you see those links at the bottom of this post (and each one from this point forward)? It’s something I started yesterday. Clicking on one of those will allow you to “sociaally” bookmark each post and send to friends, keep, etc. I figured that might help me get a few more hits on ye olde blog and maybe get the word out to those who might be struggling a little.

That’s all for now. I’m going to make a prediction for Weekly Weigh-In #12: 225.9 lbs. That’s 3 lbs. to lose in a week’s time. That’ll get me closer to the low 220s and from there, the 210s await me. Not only that, it’ll easily take me over the 70 lbs. lost mark.

Think I can do it? Find out next Tuesday!
