Getting in Shape: End of Week 12

Thanks to the superb staff at Direct NIC for solving our little website problem. Without further adieu, yesterday’s post.


Now it’s time for a little weight report. This was a frustrating week for me. I dotted all the i’s and crossed all the t’s. For the first time in several weeks, I evened out. Every point I consumed was on program, or exercised for. As such, here are some interesting stats for you.

Beginning Wii Weight: 223.8 (My heaviest ever after this summer.)
Wii Weight on 1-7-14: 211 (an overall loss of .4 for the week)
Total: 12 pounds LOST

Weight Watchers on Initial Weigh In: 224
Weight Watchers on 1-7-14: 214 (an overall gain of .2 for the week)
Total: 10 pounds LOST

And so, I thought, we enter the plateau season, when your body has to get used to the new you. So, I was not exactly down, but not exactly happy.

This is not Pam’s, the Weight Watcher leader, thoughts. Rather than supporting the plateau theory, there were three of us this weekend that lost tiny amounts, or even gained a little. Our common issue was increasing our workout. The idea is that our muscles are catching up to us, and this gain is the muscle thing, but overall that’s good.

Was Pam right? This morning’s Wii Weight was 209.7, which takes me down 1.3 from Tuesday, so Pam’s theory looks viable. We’ll see.

Working out: I’ve been working out a lot more. We have company coming this week, so I’ve been cleaning (and that’ll be the next entry, believe it), plus we just bought the Wii Fit U, and I’ve been playing with the new dance studio and the luge (loves me some luge). So, yes, I have been exercising a lot, and having fun. I suspect that the workouts will pay off.

When I saw my doc yesterday, she was thrilled. My blood pressure looked great, and I owe it all to exercise. Also, according to her records, I’ve lost 15 pounds since April. Well, you know, sometimes you weigh with your shoes on. So happy glowy happiness. Oh. Except for the dust problem. Next entry…
