Wk 6 - Weigh In

Wow, can't believe the entire week got past me without any additional posts. I have started using the My Fitness Coach for Wii and boy was I shocked at how sore I was after just the preliminary "workout" that simply assessed my fitness (or lack of) level. I used it a couple of times and after giving up on the stationary stepper I got a step that could be used either on its own or with the Fitness Coach. I attempted to do the 30min beginner step class that came with the step but somewhere between how incredibly sore I already was and the fact that I am still so out of shape I was unable to even get through the entire thing.

I also had found out about a website,, that will take a photo you submit and create your "after" photo based on the weight info you submit. I had tried this a couple of weeks ago and used my 4wk progress photo...the results were scary. I looked like horrible. The website suggests you take the photo at a slight angle and so I decided to try it again. The results are below. I actually thought that my real photo didnt look too bad considering just how much I weigh but that only lasted until I got their version of my after photo. That looks much better! The weightview after is their simulation of a 40lb weightloss. I hope to be 40lbs lighter by end of May.

This week I managed to lose another 2.4lbs which brings me to a total of 17.4 in the six weeks since the beginning of the year. I am very happy with my success thus far and plan on continuing with similar weekly losses for as long as possible. I want to be to goal by my cruise next year. The best part of this past week was that yesterday someone asked me if I had lost weight...that I was looking good. :)

Oooooh - isn't weightview the coolest?

Sorry, let me introduce myself. I'm Annalisa, stay-at-home mom of three kids. I took the time to read all your blogs just now, and hope you don't mind if I check in with you. It's inspiring to read about someone else going through the same stuff I am. Thank you for your honesty and courage. I'm trying to do the same, and I really enjoyed reading your blog.

OH and I got asked if I was losing weight yesterday too! But it was by my mom so I thought it might just be the drugs talking LOL
