The people at Yoplait and MyBlogSpark took notice of how I was working on staying fit and decided to send me and one of my readers a Yoga Mat, a Coupon for a Free Yoplait, and a signed copy of Nancy O’Dell’s new book! Who’s Nancy O’Deil you ask? Check out this video:

So I thought I would take this opportunity to give you all an update on how my fitness is doing. I’ve been working out with the Wii Fit since the last week of July, and so far I’ve dropped two pant sizes, a bust size and have lost……… wait for it………Nothing in Weight! Egad! Right, so, I’ve actually gained weight. Everyone tries to butter me up and tell me it’s just muscle I’m building, but that doesn’t ease the pain of not seeing that scale drop. But seeing as I have dropped two pant sizes, I’m pretty happy.
This is a picture of my Wii Fit graph, that shows my progress over the last three months. The dots show where my weight has fluctuated.
Previous Stats: Current Stats:
BMI: 25.31 (Overweight) 25.71 (Overweight)
Weight: 151 154
Wii Fit Age: 31 28
Real Age: 27 27
So despite the working out, I’ve not lost any weight with my Wii Fit. Oh, by the way, my husband has been working out on it (less than I have, too) and has lost 10 Pounds! I must say I’m proud of him, but wish my weight was dropping, too. But on the plus size (har har), my center of balance is dramatically improved, I feel better and more fit, I’m toner and more lean, I have more energy and I’ve dropped two pant sizes!
I received my Wii Fit Plus in the mail yesterday (ordered it on Amazon), and I am really excited about it. I did it yesterday and already feel like it’s going to make a difference, because I can combine the workouts I want to do. It makes it easy and seamless to go from one workout to the next without a break. Whereas with the regular Wii Fit, there was too much downtime picking the different workouts and waiting for them to load.
