OK, back in the swing of things after the sub300 party last week. It was definitely a strange week this week so I'm excited to have lost a couple more pounds. Well, at least I think I've lost a couple more pounds. I went to the gym this morning to work out and do the official weigh in, and low and behold they are closed. What?! What do they think, this is a national holiday or something? Can't I be patriotic and do lateral dumbbell raises at the same time? Truth is, I should have known better, but I haven't been in to the gym all week. I was out of town early this week and it's been a crazy week around the station. I did manage to run yesterday and do a bit of Wii Fit on Wednesday, but other than that I haven't done any dedicated exercise this week. I've even eaten a little more than usual, but somehow the weight keeps coming off, according to Wii Fit that is.

I have done a direct comparison of the official scale to the Wii Balance board and they are at about a pound difference (the Wii Fit also subtracts a couple pounds for clothes). So generally if I add 3 to my Wii Fit weight that is what the official scale should say. This morning when I weighed in it said 292.7, so I rounded up to 293 added the 3 and then threw in an extra pound just to be safe. I'm pretty sure I don't weigh over 297 but I might be a little below that, it's just hard to tell. We shall see next week when I hit the official scale again.

Happy 4th, and see you again next week!
