Start Your Diet Today!

Another good day.

I’m so thrilled to be down to 219, so I’m almost down to the 1/2 way mark!  Yippee!!!!  I walked today to.  I had a hair appointment and the salon is only about 1.5 miles away so I walked there (downhill most of the way) and then back (obviously uphill most of the way).  Going uphill was murder, but I made it, I’m still alive, and I managed to get in about 40 solid minutes of walking!!!!  Yesterday I walked for about 40 min then did my usual late night 10 min walk with my son.  He’s 6 so it’s not exactly a 10 min stroll it’s more like a sprint trying to keep up with him. 

Can’t wait to report more weight losses!  I was at a plateau for SO long, like 2 months, so it’s gratifying to even lose a couple of pounds.

    Great job! That’s determination and an inspiration. I thought this morning I should walk to the gym, but it was just sooo muggy and gross that I couldn’t help but jump in the car. So if you could do it with your hair all pretty and dolled up, I sure as heck can do it in my workout clothes and hair all tore up. 🙂 Thanks for reminding me! CONGRATS ON THE 1/2 MARK! WHAT AN ACCOMPLISHMENT, KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK! (the caps are because I’m sooo excited for you to hit your half-way there mark!)

    Thanks so much gottaloose4! LOL, I’m sure I looked pretty silly w/hair done up and walking and sweating. LOL, I put my hair up in a ponytail when I got home and my DH who works a nightshift woke up, saw my hair, and said “Did you cancel your hair appointment????” LOL!!!! Oh well, it was worth it. I really felt good about walking there and back. I did fell a bit yucky with the heat and humidity, but I made sure when I left I allowed myself about 15 extra min to get there to cool off and fix my makeup so I didn’t walk in the salon looking all sweaty. I just had to go home from there, and my family has seen me much worse, so it all worked out good and I got exercise to boot!!!! I know you can do it too!
