I know this is a really tiny thing for many of you awesome people who have already lost some weight, but I just had to be proud of myself somewhere :p

About a 8 days ago I started doing some light exercise in my house by jogging in place on and off for 20 minutes. I could barely jog for more than 1 minute at a time because my shins started getting this sharp pain and I had to stop (hence the on and off). Since then I went for a brisk 3km walk almost every day. Today I couldn't go out so I decided to do the jogging in place thing. To my delight, I found it so much easier and not only did I do the jogging for 20 minutes only stopping a couple of times, I also added 100 squats.

I don't know whether it's only in my head that it's easier since I started so recently or whether I'm actually getting used to it a little.

Since I haven't lost any weight (I haven't really adjusted my diet too much so I didn't expect it to move much) this is a little victory for me that is going to keep me pumped to go on :)

Most excellent! I don't start until Sept 5, but I have started drinking water and I am going to start walking today!

Hardly the "Minniest of Mini Goals" in my eyes - I think you've taken a huge leap forward. Keep going!

You inspired me! I did my first 20 minute walk. I went around the neighborhood and noted the house where I stopped. Hopefully, like you, I will find that my stamina increases.
