Regaining my footing

I feel like I'm trying to climb a mountain, and a couple of weeks ago I slipped on a glacier and fell halfway back down. I literally gained back half the weight I have lost so far. But I'm working my way back and I'm only a pound up from where I was before I fell. I should probably come up with more analogies about pitons and safety ropes and whatnot, but it's too early in the morning to do that much thinking.

I've started exercising with Wii Fit a few times a week. It can be a little deceptive. It feels like playing a game, but the soreness and stiffness in my thighs tells me the step aerobics are a real workout and I overdid it. I've heard there's a way to play on the Wii with friends over the internet, but I haven't figured out how. Anyone know?

Marta,

I love the glacier analogy!! Everything we do to try to improve is like climbing a mountain. But you lose your footing for one second and find yourself at the bottom again. Doll garn it! :o)

Good job on climbing back up there, though. That's what we have to do, right?

We should look into that, Marta - I'd love to play Wii Fit with you!
