My Quest...Update

I thought I would update you on my quest to lose a bit of weight. As of Saturday morning, I had lost 7.6 lbs. Though not visible to others, I am noticing a difference in my clothes. I have even been able to get back in to an item or two! So...my quest is successful so far.

Each morning, I get up fairly early and then go downstairs for my quiet time and then I get on the WiiFit. (The kids received a Wii from their aunt and uncle for Christmas.) I do the body test every other day. I must say that my first attempt at the body test had my WiiFit age at 53! But it has been going down steadily, until this morning it was 20! But, I must say that my Mii is quite a round thing. Sad to look at really. Though my weight is going down, it hasn't registered too much yet in how my Mii looks. When I get on WiiFit, I do two yoga exercises, two advanced step aerobics, and then two more yoga exercises. Then in the afternoon, I do 15 more minutes most days.

All in all, it has not been hard, and I can even say it has been kind of fun. We will see how the rest of the quest goes...but wanted to keep you posted on my efforts so far.
