i can jog for two straight minutes :-)

ok, i know that doesn't sound like much. but i've been smoking on & off (mostly on) since i was 12 (15 years), and have never really been active. one of my friends used to make fun of me for how i was mostly walking at the gym, rather than running. i've been smoke-free for 2 months, and have reached the 2-minute jogging mark for the first time... ever!

Hey, that is great! When I first went out I think I made 30 seconds before I thought I was going to do, and I've never smoked!

Don't be embarrassed - that's a fabulous accomplishment! I'm quite sure that I could NOT jog for two minutes straight!

Way to go! If we were always happy & satisfied with small goals, losing weight wouldn't be so hard. You're on the right track!
