Happy MLK day, I heard on the radio that only 3 individuals have a U.S national holiday in their honor, and I’m proud that Dr. King is one of them.  Since my firm recognizes the holiday, I was able to sleep in. Once I woke up, I played the xbox Kinect Dance Central 2 video game in my living room.  I was trying to master the moves to Trey Songz hit song, “Say Ahhh.”  I’m so uncoordinated, I had to take the step by step tutorial.  But, it was so much fun, and it showed that I burned between 30 and 50 calories each time I did the choreographed routine.   I was pouring sweat, but finally managed to get 4 out of 5 stars.  It’s a great way to workout with feeling like I was exercising.  You know I’m an over achiever, I’m going to get those 5 stars at some point. lol. 

The scale at home has looked promising all week, so I wasn’t concerned about the weigh in at the Weight Watcher meeting tonight. Additionally, like last week, I look and feel better, so I was determined that the scale was not going to change my mood. But it turned out that was not totally true.  Getting on the scale at the meeting did change my mood. I went from being at peace, knowing that I worked the program, to being ECSTATIC that I lost a total of 6.6 pounds in just 2 weeks!!!  And I ate, y’all.  I didn’t starve.  I ate all the things I wanted, just not at much.  If I keep saying the positive things and keeping track of my points, there’s no telling where this thing might take me.  (People Half their Size issue? A weight watcher commercial? A full marathon? lol) Baby Steps…I know…Only time will tell!

  1. I’m so proud of my big sister!…. that’s all 🙂

  2. You go girl–I weigh in tomorrow, no today it is after midnight and I can’t sleep. I had a diet coke with dinner no caffine free diet coke at this restaurant. My scales say I have lost another 2+ pounds but we will see in about 9 hours. We can do it Carli.

  3. Ok, we had talked once before about getting together to work out since I’m a fellow St. Louisan… and now your mention of Dance Central 2 has got me all stoked to make it happen. I LOVE that game. We downloaded the Zumba and Biggest Loser demos also and I’m amazed at how much it makes me physically move.

    Congrats on the weight loss! Keep it up! I’ve lost 7 pounds so far (since Dec. 20th) and I fell off the wagon this weekend, but I am determined that this is the year for me.

  4. More like WOO HOO!!! Great job!!!

    I went to my first meeting last night and made it through my second weigh-in. According to their scale, I’m up 1.6 lbs, but when I weigh naked in the privacy of my bathroom they way it’s supposed to be – I’m down 3lbs.

  5. Great job Carli! I felt the same this week. I had been trying to get my 5lb star for reaching 65 lbs since Christmas. I worked really hard this last week and hoped to lose the 2.2 lbs I gained the week before. I was extatic to see that I lost 5.2 lbs and finally got my next 5 lb star. Keep on going and maybe you and all your WW fiercelings could be in a commercial together. 😉

  6. Woohoo! Way to go! You have it right, BABY STEPS!!!!

  7. awesome job, my dear web-blog-daughter! keep up the good work! Yay for baby steps 🙂

  8. Big Little Sister in the HOUSE! Woop-woop! lol

  9. Hey Diane I hope your weigh-in went well. I lost another pound on Monday! I was happy about it, but it could’ve been a little better but for a pizza debacle that happened the day before.

  10. Hey Julie! I remember you. We will still have to get together once the weather acts right. Last week my DirecTv was having issues and the associate asked how has the weather been? I said well this week alone we had 70 degrees, snow, rain and a tornado. So I’m not sure what that means for my satellite…anyway, I’m still having a blast with DC 2. My sis came over last night, we ate grilled KFC and took turns with the fitness mode.

  11. Hey Tex, Dress light girl, dress light. I told that lady I was about to get naked on Monday at the scale, she was like “that’s okay, we’ll put up a privacy wall for you.” LOL! We can do this! …. And I worked out with the xbox Kinect yesterday! Thanks for the encouragment.

  12. Yay Stephanie! You did it!!! I can’t wait until I lose 65 pounds! But for now, I’m happy that I’ve tracked every day for nearly a month and the scale is finally moving in the right direction…. I’m totally stealing your word “Fiercelings” LOVE IT!

  13. Thanks Tam, like you said we might be slower, but I’ll get there…baby steps.

  14. Thanks Mama Helen, your comment reminded me of my Dad, when he usually always asks “so what’s a blog?” lol. But now he’s catching on a little…he’s says “its like a diary that write for everybody to see?….sure Daddy…sorta
