Blowing Past the 190's!!!!

This morning was weigh in day over at the Sisterhood and I was actually excited to jump on those scales!! The past couple of weeks have been challenging with the "eating right" and "exercise" but as busy as I was with moving I knew that I had burned a bunch of calories. The eating too much wasn't really a problem....more than anything I had a hard time eating at all -- when I am really busy I just don't do much eating. This is especially true when I don't feel well and have to keep going like last week.

So, as I was saying, I was excited to see what would show up on the scale....and WOW!! I was a happy camper!

Last week's weigh in -- 191.8
This week's weigh in -- 189.6!!!!

I just blew past 190 and I cannot tell you how happy I am to be past that decade!! I am so done with those numbers!!

Officially I have lost a little more than 36 pounds since I started seriously losing weight on March 25. My original goal was to be at 150 by Christmas. I know that isn't going to happen but I do believe I can be at 180 by then -- maybe even less! So that is my new goal, at or below 180 by Christmas!!

I finally got unpacked enough yesterday to get the Wii connected (kind of) so I did my Wii Active - More Workout (Day #2) last night. I really just wanted to go to bed, but I wanted to exercise more!! Can you believe I just said that?? Yes, it's true I LOVE exercising and I really miss it now when it doesn't happen. Anyway, I did the easy setting and need to do the medium intensity at least, it just wasn't really enough for me, but I didn't want to bump it up last night because of how tired I was. Hopefully tonight I will be able to bump it up to medium and really start getting into it. These games are so much fun, it just doesn't seem like I am really exercising, although my heart and body can tell that I am!!

Hope ya'll are having a good day!
