Ups and Downs

First with the ups.

I am now officially 3.3 lbs lighter. My first week went great and I am so happy with my outcome. It's given me a great amount of strength to know that I can do this and lose all the weight I need to lose.

There are somethings that I worry about. Like will my skin go back. I don't want to be one of those people who look like someone fluffed them out and then have to go and have it fixed.

As for the down, it's kind of depressing. You want so badly for everyone to come on board and be with you. It's not always like that though. We are moving in the right direction. Both of my kids are starting to eat more healthy and my husband is now on board. This is not without it's own situation.

In my house we do not own a scale. The closest thing that we own is a Wii. We have the Wii fit plus game and since no one really uses it anymore I use it as a charting tool. I update my kids heights and I weight them occasionally. Everyone in the house get's weighted on Family Weigh Day. Other then that I try and keep the kids from getting obsessed with the number on the screen. Even for my own weigh in's which are weekly to record progress on my bodybugg site, I do it while they are at school. Now family weigh day was yesterday, since we missed the actual day. Everyone got weighed and finally it was time for my husband. He gets on the board and the program tells him that it cannot weight him. What?!? It must be a mistake right? So we try again, and again, and finally again. Nope, not a mistake.

I hope that you are seeing where I am going with this.

If you don't let me let you in on a little secret. The Wii Fit Balance Board has a weight limit of 330 lbs.

Now lets put all the together. If the game will not weigh him anymore then he actually put on weight and is now over 330 lbs. I'm pissed. That means from the last time that he weighed in he gained at least 15 lbs. Seriously? Why am I pissed? Because even when I was not trying to lose weight the whole purpose of family weigh day was to at least maintain your weight and not gain anymore. I know it's not good to be or stay fat, but if your not losing it, it's better then nothing to not be gaining more.

Let me know what you think. Am I way off on this for being mad at him?

  1. Everyone has to lose weight when they are ready. You can't do it for him and if you push him you will have other issues to deal with like him being mad at you. Lose weight for yourself first and maybe when he sees your progress he will be motivated to jump on board! Good luck:)
