Day 1 on the Wii Fit (again)
So according to Wii, it’s been 210 days since I have been logged in to the Wii Fit. Truth be told, I got on it once and that was that; I hate working out, even if it’s fun. Good news is I have lost 10.1lbs since I was on it last. Apparently though, that’s not enough of an accomplishment for my for Wii. As soon as my weight was tallied, I got the “sad, fat” music playing and my chubby wii person looked all depressed. They didn’t even shrink her at all either. Screw you Wii! I think losing 10lbs without working out, on diet alone, is pretty damn good.
For those of you who do not own a Wii or Wii Fit and choose not to be ridiculed by your gaming systems, Wii asks you to stand on a balance board and it weighs you. It attempts to be fair and precise by even asking how much your clothing weighs. I went with the lightest option this time, plus it’s late. I’m always fatter at the end of my day. Even though I lost 10lbs, and when I weigh myself (naked first thing in the morning on my scale), I have reached a healthy weight and BMI for my height (5’4″) of exactly 147lbs, Wii has me weighing in fully clothed at night at 147.7lbs. Not “welcome back, Susan” or “Congrats on losing 10.1lbs since you were logged in last,” no I get fat music and a depressed Wii Me. F-you, Wii!
So there are several things I need to do at this point. I’d like to lose at least another 10-15lbs and be at a comfortable weight well within a healthy BMI. I also need to lower my ridiculously high cholesterol (290-yikes!), and most importantly (to me) I need to firm up! I’ve lost 50lbs since giving birth last July, and now I’m just all flibbity-flabbity. Plus, as many other Moms are probably aware, your weight tends to “shift’ after you have kids. I carry weight in new places particularly my hips, lower stomach, thunder thighs and ass areas. Something needs to be done from my knees to my belly button. I wouldn’t mind getting rid of my back fat either. You can’t suck that in.
So Step One- My stats. Check. Maybe tomorrow I’ll actually workout.
