Getting in Shape: End of Week 22

And we skipped a week, because I was really, really busy with fiction.

I weighed in yesterday, so I could spend some quality time tonight with the husband before I ran off on my TESOL trip.

Here’s the stats:

eginning Wii Weight: 223.8 (My heaviest ever after this summer.)
Wii Weight on 3-25-14: 204.4 (a loss of 0.4)
Total: 19.3 pounds LOST

Weight Watchers on Initial Weigh In: 224
Weight Watchers on 3-25-14: 208 (a loss of 1.2)
Total: 16 pounds

Weight analysis: I actually lost about a pound last week, and gained 0.2 this week on the Weight Watchers scale, but that is overall down.

Exercise analysis: Just tuned into the Wii Fit Meter, and I’m trying to get up to 500 calories burned a day, which is doubling my physical activity.

Food analysis: No amount of exercise can counteract bad food habits. I’m still coming in on too many points, and you’ve probably noticed me hovering in the 203-206 range. I was hoping to be about 201 April 1st, and I don’t think I can do that now. Today I weighed 205.5, for example, so that’s a bit much to shed in a matter of days.

My adjusted goal, therefore, is to be below 200 by the time I go to Wiscon Memorial day weekend. I believe I can do that. I will be eating many more vegetables and substituting light popcorn for all afternoon munchies, instead of occasionally grabbing a cookie. It’s the new plan, and it’s still calories, but it’s about 1/2-1/4 the calories. I will also try packing better snacks, but this seems a good place to start for now.
