The Initial Goal

I say initial because, you never know, it could change

So I just did my WiiFit workout. A full hour (and two minutes!) of a mix of yoga, aerobics, strength training, and balance work. According to my counter, it says I burned 302 calories. I don’t really know if that’s a lot…but it’s a start, right?

Before every WiiFit workout, they have you do a body test. I always do the long ones, that include a couple of balance and memory games at the end. I’m thinking something must be weird with my balance board, because according to it, I gained 5.5 pounds between yesterday and today, and over a full 1% of BMI. I might get a board to put under it, or something, when I use it, because I’ve heard that carpet can make a difference, even with the little extenders on it.

Alright – the stats. According to WiiFit, my BMI today was 37.97, with my weight being 214.3 lbs. I set a new goal on there today to bring my BMI down to 35.98, which would be a loss of about 11 lbs., and I set it for two months. I know these things have to go slow, and that a weight loss of more than 10 pounds in two months just isn’t feasible or healthy (if you do manage it). So, by October 18, I should be down to 204 (which is what I was a month ago -__- if I’d’ve stuck with my plan then, I’d be under 200 by now. But, no use crying over spilled milk, right?).

In plain, visible, non-paragraph terms:

August 18, 2011
BMI:
37.97
Weight: 214.3

Goal: October 18, 2011
BMI:
35.98
Weight: 203
Loss per Week should be about 2.6 lbs.

I’ll do a check-in on here at least every Wednesday. Notable losses or gains will be posted immediately. Corresponding pictures will be posted with the weekly check-ins.

So…does this make it official? Sure!

What are some daily, weekly, monthly goals that you lot have?

  1. Yeah, the fit was a good start for us as well! We actually ended up getting the EA Sports Active 2 a few months ago… it has been a HUGE difference. We found the fit was good for getting our energy levels up, but not that great for actual weight loss. The EA one is a GOOD one for actual weight loss. My hubby has lost a good 15-20 lbs since he started it. I started it and lost about 5, but got so busy with work the last couple months that I stopped doing it altogether… but I need to get started again!

    I found with the Wii, that putting at minimim, a yoga mat underneath, or a board with yoga mat on top works better because the carpet WAY throws it off.

  2. You can do this!!

    After meeting with Curves today, I set a weight goal of 124 which is the highest weight I should be for my height (I’m 4’11). I haven’t been that since high school and a size 6! I think checking in every Wednesday is a great idea!
