5% Down!!!!!!!!!

Hey everyone!

Sorry about the delay in getting the follow-up to the poll posted! I've been slacking (but not on my goal). Monday was my Weight Watchers meeting and weigh-in day. I lost another 2.8 pounds for a total loss of 10 pounds! I just barely met my mini goal which was to lose 5% of my body weight, but hey, I DID IT.

Today as my present to myself I ordered a Belly Dancing exercise video. Since, I will be needing to add exercise into my plan soon to keep the weight-loss going... I haven't exercised yet. One of the WW leaders told me that since my body is considering working on my feet as exercise, I should weight til the weight-loss slows before I add any more in. Today I got satellite and was watching FiTV for the heck of it and they were doing belly dancing. It looked like such a fun way to exercise that I ordered a video!

I must admit to you all that I am not feeling 100% thrilled. I am glad that I met one goal, but I am a little disappointed that I haven't gone down a pant size yet. I tried on some old jeans to see how far I had to go to fit into my old size 10's and 12's and I still have some work ahead of me to get there. I am glad I chose to buy that exercise video! Now let's see if I ever put it in the DVD player...

ohhhh belly dance! what a good idea! I'm taking belly dance right now, and it's so much fun... I.. haven't lost any weight doing it, but then again, it's only one night a week. All my rice more than compensates for an hour of shaking my hips.

Congrats on the weight loss, you always seem to loose weight quickly when you try hard. Keep up the good work!

I actually got 3 videos. They were buy 2 get 1 free on Barnes and Noble and free shipping on orders over 25, so I went ahead and spent 30 bucks. I got belly dance, hip hop, and the Biggest Loser Yoga.
