Wii Fit U, four months in

...okay, I'm still a fat motherfucker.

Yeah, that's right.  I'm no longer a part of America's obesity problem.  You know, according to BMI.  They had to draw a line in the sand somewhere.  I'm still overweight and have a lot of work ahead of me, but it's an important milestone nonetheless.  I planned on posting these pictures on twitter, but procrastinated the image editing and then things happened.

I tried jogging, but I did it wrong at first.  I tried jogging the first portion of each lap and walking the rest, which resulted in my legs going NOPE by the end of the third lap.  My new solution that's working so far is to just jog the first portion of the first lap, and simply gradually increase the distance I jog as I feel able to do more.

Also, on September 1st, Wii Fit U changed all its graphics to the fall variants.  Island Cycling now has pretty fall colors on the trees, and for some reason, two desolate shades of yellow for most of the grass.  Someone get Nintendo on the line and tell them that grass stays green year-round...

Anyway, standard graph of the last month or so.  Notice how annoying Wii Fit U is getting with the "EXPLAIN YOURSELF" after trivial weight gains that disappear the next day.  Also, towards the end there's a rise in calories burned, I kinda went into crunch time to make sure I'd be 50 pounds down and continue the trend I've been setting thus far.  An extra walk per day is what that amounted to, which is totally within my realm of capability.

Graph for the last month

I have three milestones that all occur together: leaving the Obese BMI range, reaching 50 pounds down, and getting under 200 pounds.  I've already reached two of the three, and I'll be able to easily reach the third within the next week or so.  Things are looking pretty good overall.
