Default I DID IT......I survived!

I made it thru the weekend and even had to go to a restaurant and still DID IT.

I also walked (2 times on Saturday) and today, Monday morning it is raining here and I still WALKED! I know I have to rain or shine, I can't give myself an excuse NOT to.

I am still amazed that the counting calories is working for me.

I am MINUS 3 lbs in my first week.

Here's to many more and again - THANK YOU FOR YOR SUPPORT!

YAY! Keep going! It's been great having you here and I am so happy you are seeing results!

There's no ticker here because I have no idea what I weigh, nor do I have plans to get on the scale anytime soon. My goals are to take care of myself in healthy ways and let the scale fall wherever it will. "It's not about skinny anymore - it's about healthy."

Good for you! I love that you walked in the rain! When I used to go to the gym I made it a point to go every single day even if I was sick. I wouldn't necessarily work out, but I still got up and went. Sometimes I just hit the locker room, turned around and went back home. It was the habit I was after and it worked very well.
