I have struggled with my weight for about ten years now, and I hate that I've blown almost all my 20s being overweight and unhappy. I decided back around Thanksgiving that this was finally going to be my year. I do not want to make the same mistake in my 30s of being unhappy with my health, but not being willing to do anything about it. I want our first cruise to be an adventure and if I'm overweight and out of shape it will be much harder on me.
I started out this year using the Biggest Loser Wii workout, but I didn't really care for it. I lost some weight with it, but I didn't feel like I was getting any toning in with my workouts, so I switched to the Wii Active. One interesting motivation on the Active... when you're running around the track and pass the side with the water you can see a big cruise ship out in the sea. Kind of neat to have that visual reminder of what my end reward will be for all this hard work!
I hope to meet some others on here who are going through this with me. You don't necessarily have to be using the same type of workout as I am. I'd love to have someone else to encourage and motivate, and share some healthy recipes with. Let me know when and what cruise you're going on--it would be awesome to meet someone who is going on the same one as I am so we could work out together! I am going on the Voyager of the Seas November 28th. God bless all of you and good luck reaching your goals!
