SO, today was wi # 11 and I have now lost for 11 straight weeks!

I am so happy with how the program is working for me. I know that I could (and should) be doing A LOT more in terms of exercising, but I do feel that for me taking baby steps in that regard is working. I used my Wii fit several times last week, and we even took the kids swimming both Saturday & Sunday. We are definitely changing our overall lifestyle as a family.

The other night I felt very tired, and while my DH went out for his run with the dog I decided that I would lay down and close my eyes for a bit. Well, I got all comfy and stayed there for about 2 mins while I thought about how proud I was of my DH for all his efforts lately (he has lost 33 lbs since I've started) and I got this overwhelming feeling that I wanted to exercise too. So, I got up off my butt and did 40 mins of a combo of aerobic and balance exercises on Wii. I felt so good afterwards.

I am excited to hear about this new program that WW has in store for us in December. I've heard that it is supposedly called MOMENTUM, and I feel good about that. I know that I have a good momentum going, and hopefully this new program will help me to get closer to and finally reach my goal. I've heard through the message boards that it is a combination of both flex and core programs. I'm very curious to see how it all works since I am a die-hard core advocate.

I hope that everyone out in cyber weight loss land is having a good start to their week! :)

Jen you are doing so amazingly well, you really are! Lossing for 11 straight weeks is a great accomplishment, and the mind shift to move more is key as well.

Happy to read your post today!
