My Weight Battle....

I have been struggling to lose weight from my back to back pregnancies. I can't seem to find time to exercise or stick to eating the right way. After I had Julia I was able to go to the gym and I was on Weight Watchers which really worked well for me! I ate right and controlled my portions and the food journaling was perfect for me. I was able to hit my goal weight by my 30th birthday and kept the weight off for quite a while. I can't quite put my finger on why I can't at least get myself back to journaling what I eat and getting on program again with Weight Watchers. I know it works but somehow the chocolate, the cake and the cookies keep calling me and I keep answering the call!!!

Well I don't know how to get myself back on track with the eating. I know it's mental and I keep praying to get my mind back on track with how I want to eat. However, I think I might be able to get some exercise in because my family chipped in to get me Wii Fit for my birthday! I love playing with the Wii, especially the bowling so Wii Fit is right up my alley! ;) There is yoga, strength training, balance and aerobic activities. The balance board that comes with the game weighs you and you get your BMI. It lets you set goals to lose weight and tells you how to work on your balance and other aspects of the exercise routines in the program. We are having so much fun playing with this as a family. Julia is addicted to it! She was playing Wii Fit for almost an hour today and it's great to see her enthusiastic about exercising.

I am going to try and post my results. Maybe I'll do Weigh in Wednesdays! Right now I'm set to check my progress every two weeks. Let's see if this will get me in shape and motivate me to eat better and take care of myself!
