Weigh-In Wednesday is back. Join me?

I've talked about it.
You've talked about it.

Occasionally we pay attention to it and do something about it like choose a salad over a burger but have we really changed our lifestyle and made it important?

I, for one, have not. I wanted to for a while, I still want to but I let life get in the way. I won't bore you with details but sometimes, it's enough to fight the emotional battles while maintaining an existing lifestyle as opposed to trying to add weightloss and diet change in the mix. (And there was/is nothing to worry about with me. Just life weighing me down.)

Anyway, I have decided it's time to settle back in and start changing the lifestyle. I started on Monday. No Jillian, yet but I will.

No, I am so badly out of shape that I noticed taking a flight of stairs quickly left me slightly winded. I started with 20 min. elliptical on Mon., today, and Fri.  Sat. I will start some sort of strength/stretching and next week hope to be able to do 20 min. elliptical M-F with Strenght/stretching every other day. 

After that, if it goes well, I'll reacquaint myself with Jillian Michaels.  In the meantime, I follow her on Facebook and will find her on Twitter as a constant reminder she's always out there waiting for me. :)

Anyway, I started on Monday at 163.5lbs. and today weighed in at 162 (although I am not taking much stock in the lost because I fluctuate 1-2 lbs on any given day). 

So is anyone with me? Ready to step back into the get healthy lifestyle mentality? I hope you do. It will be nice to share our successes and rough patches.

For tonight's dinner, individual chicken pot pies on this chilly, rainy and gray day.

By the way, take a look at these two videos with Rachael Ray and Jillian. See the one with Rachael exercising first and then Jillian in the kitchen. It was great fun to watch.

My new years resolution phizzled away in failure - I know I should join you in this, but I can't bring myself to. One day I'll get motivated again - good luck.

As I sit here reading this post 10 minutes after dinner (I had chicken and ate all the skin ) I am stuffing my face with rum truffles and drinking a coke. (not diet ) Later Im already planning a raid on my secret salt and vinegar chip stash .

What was the question ?

I am with you! So I weigh in every Weds? Yesterday I was at 144.8. Today...hmm. Didn't weigh in but I did do a treadmill run.

I am on a weightloss/eat healthy/get moving "path"...I blog about healthy ideas and motivational stuff on my blog on Saturdays...and I report in. I like to weigh on Saturday mornings. This is great that you are doing this. It is motivational for me to know that others are trying to get healthier too.
