Checking in

So, I've lost a total of 6 pounds and have about 30 more to go. In some ways, it feels overwhelming but I think the important thing for me to remember is to break it down into reasonable and realistic increments.

I've been much better at watching what I'm eating but trying to find time to fit in regular exercise is hard. I know that I spend too much time online and should trade some web surfing for exercise but I get sucked in way too quickly and for too long.

One thing that is helping is that we made a decision to no longer leave our dogs in the backyard so a few times a day, we've got to take the 3 of them for a walk. And we're doing it family style so we're all out there walking which makes it more fun and not such a chore. It's cute to see an excited 4 year old hold a leash :-)

Anyway, one pound at a time is what I keep reminding myself.

Awesome job, Kathy! I know it's sometimes hard to keep your eye OFF the 'big picture' and concentrate on baby steps, but you're doing great!

Congratulations! That's so great. Yep, it's one pound (or less) at a time but it's worth it. I bet you're feeling better already. I've found that when I start to see some progress, even a little, it makes it easier to stick to my daily goals.

Keep it up!
