Getting in Shape: End of Week 24

And in a dizzying week of workity work work, we’re back. How’d we do this week?

Beginning Wii Weight: 223.8 (My heaviest ever after this summer.)
Wii Weight on 3-25-14: 205 (a loss of 1.1)
Total: 18.8 pounds LOST

Added Intelligence: This is the new high. I have spent most of my week in the 203.5-203.7 zone. I’ll tell you what’s going on shortly.

Weight Watchers on Initial Weigh In: 224
Weight Watchers on 3-25-14: 207.6 (a loss of 1.4)
Total: 16.4 pounds

What’s going on: As I mentioned the 205 is the new ceiling. I had a big indulgence last night (pizza AND ice cream) but I have no “food events” this week, and so I decided to spend all my extras on one days. The rest of my planner is cute now. At the top it says “Remember the Zookie.” and how many points I can have for the day, plus how much exercise I need to do each day. I’m in the zone, and I expect great success this week.

What’s working: The Wii Fit U Meter gives me a wonderful idea of how much exercising I’m really doing. It means that I must take more time to work out, BUT at the same time, it’s more honest. It’s also fun. I mean, I’ve walked around Chicago, New York, and Sydney. I’m currently in London. I’ve also climbed the Statue of Liberty, the Pyramid of Giza, and I’m almost up to the top of the Eiffel Tower. What’s not to like?

What do I need to improve?: Well, work has been full. I mean as in robust. So, you know, eating seems to be a way to cope when you aren’t enjoying yourself. I refuse to fall back into that trap, so focusing on one really good treat, being satisfied, and finding happiness where I can, that’s what I’m working on. I believe that I have the exercise under control, and when I get the happy under control, the food will follow. Pretty sure about that.

My new hope is to be below 200 by the end of May. Here’s hoping!
