A new low!

After several weeks of being 3 to 5 pounds off my weight loss goal, I today dropped to another new low: 118 pounds gone!  Now, a pound isn’t all that much in the scheme of things, especially because weight can fluctuate rather dramatically.  But, for me, it’s a significant accomplishment because I’ve been fighting those couple extra pounds for so long and have finally gotten back on track.  Yay!

And even more good news… after reducing his calorie intake for about three weeks, my BF has lost 9 pounds!  Bravo!!  I’m so proud of how he’s been diligently keeping track of his food, recording everything – and I do mean everything – in his PDA and modifying his choices based on how many calories he has left. 

It’s been great to be with him at the beginning of this journey, and I’m very excited for the road ahead for both of us.  He bought a Wii, and we’ve been working out with it, using the sports modules: boxing, tennis, baseball, bowling and golf.  I’ve continued to do my stairs, the Cardio X, use the pull-up bar, and do my weights workout.  We’ve also been doing yoga together.  Adding the Wii to the mix has been lots of fun for me, and he really likes it, too… which means he’ll be that much more inclined to stick with it.  He’s trying to track down a Wii Fit but hasn’t had any success yet.  He’s committed, though, so I know we’ll have one soon!

The best part is that we are sharing something fundamental with each other that will make our lives better.  I’ve always wanted to have that with my significant other, and now I do!  J
