Well it’s not wonder I got mistaken as pregnant all those times. I mean, good gawd, I never realized just how fat I was until last night. I was browsing earlier videos I had done when I came across one of me on the treadmill. Wow. I was shocked just to see how big I was around. I knew I was fat but I guess I didn’t realize how it was all right there in the mid section, making me look pregnant. I’ve been too embarrassed to write this post because I have gained weight but you guys are the ones that motivate & support me so I feel like I can share.
Okay, letting that last bit of negativity out is done and over.
Right here and now, I pledge to NOT talk down to myself anymore. Not make fun of my own weight anymore but instead, to see the positives and focus on making myself healthy in body and soul.
You all know how I talk about the Nintendo Wii right? How bad I want one and how I truly feel it will help me? I actually love workouts but easily get bored with the same one over and over again. This is where the Wii comes in. You’ve seen the Wii Fit, now the Wii Fit Plus and how they offer variety, something I need to stay motivated every day. And I’ve always heard it’s good to not have repetition so that your body doesn’t expect the same thing. Is that accurate or am I just making stuff up?? Maybe one of you will know.
I’ve heard some amazing stories from women using the Wii to help them on their road to a healthier lifestyle. It’s inspirational. Did you know that 11 million females in the U.S.–one out of every four system owners–is considered the “primary player” on those home systems? And a full 80 percent of those female primary players own the Wii console. WOW! I had no idea so I was surprised when I found that. I knew it had to be a big number because it seems like everyone I know has one and is using it for weight loss and casual gaming.
I’ve gained weight even since that fatter picture of me. Over 10lbs to be exact. I’m now at 198. Wow..I’m so ashamed to say that, especially since I know friends and family read my blog. I’ve asked a few people to hold me accountable. To call me and make sure I’ve exercised. To support me. I’ve asked you before and you probably think I’m a total loser by now but hopefully you’ll keep on supporting me. Maybe I could use a prayer too….is it wrong to ask for prayers to help me lose weight? Something so selfish like that?
I want to hear from you. I want to hear your weight loss stories of success and your stories of, what i like to call, falling off the wagon. I want to hear if the Wii Fit has helped you, what goals did you set for yourself, how often did you use it….everything. Pour your heart out.
