OMG!!!!! Whoo Hoo!!!!!!

Last summer, I got a Wii fit because I was feeling really big. The very first body test I did I found out that I was 201 lbs and it said I was obese!!! Yikes! (I am 5'8" by the way) I used it for a month and didn't really notice any difference. I had lost a whopping 1 pound! I grew frustrated and gave up on it, I didn't like looking at it saying obese every day! LOL! I started walking on my own and eating better and smaller portions. I also started eating only when I was hungry instead of  thinking, "it's 6, I have to eat dinner...etc) I totally forgot about my weight and just consentrated on my family and enjoying time with them.

Fast forward to last night. My youngest was playing on the wii and I got a wild hair up my butt and decided just for fun to do a body test. I lost 40 pounds!!!!!!! I couldn't believe it! I ran in and grabbed the shorts I wore when I was playing on the wii in October, and they fell right off!!! I wanted to dance for joy!!!!!!!! I am now normal according to the chart, although it said that my ideal weight is around 145 so I have another 20 pounds, but I already lost 40 lbs without really trying, so what's another 20? LOL!

Thanks guys! I wish I could take credit for hard work, but I didn't really think about it. I just started eating better foods, and smaller portions. Instead of 2 helpings, I stick to one moderately sized one. It took a year to lose 40 pounds. But at my age, I feel awesome! No bikini for me though...LOL!
