Default My little success!

This may not seem like a big deal, but I made a decision on Monday to change my ways...its now Wednesday. And I am doing A.O.K. I have been walking ...yes walking!! I never walked. I walked for 20 minutes yesterday, and then a friend and myself decided to go to a movie. The theatre is probably 15/20 minutes away and we decided to walk there and back. And we did it! 2 walks in one day. I actually feel great. A success for me. And my second success is that I have been filling my body with water. I never ever drank water. I have a water bottle and I have been drinking, drinking and drinking. And all I can do is pee. I hope that is a good thing. But I feel good since I started walking and drinking water. I feel more energetic. I am going to continue this and hopefully it will become a habbit.
Thanks for listening

Sounds like you guys are doing great! I made that decision to change my life a year ago and i lost 80lbs since. SO once you make up your mind and do can do anything! I really believe that because before the decision to change i didnt think i could do until i realized i really wanted to. So good job people.

This is what I have been doing lately as well. I've been getting outside and biking around, rollerblading, etc. I've been sacrificing pop (I used to drink 3-4 cans a day, ouch!) for lots of water, although i'm not sure what to eat. Alot of people will say "eat healthy vegetables!" but I hate veggies, making this much harder for me
