Keep up the good work! So glad to read when others remember to count those work-out sessions in which you do your chores (like gardening!). So many people forget to count those as calorie-buring sessions!
For me, it is usually housework! Just lugging the vaccuum cleaner around can make me work up a sweat!
Hope the garden rewards you with its bounty this summer. And, don't forget to hydrate -- you can loose a lot of water out in the yard!
Stay with it; stay well!

The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another's, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises.

well, i just finished gardening work for 45 minutes and feel great. I lost 3 lbs and feel better but wish i could lose 10 overnight. i know it is not realistiic so i am content to just keep triying. i was borderline diabetic at the beginning of the year but made it to where it is 100 measure so i try to watch the carborhydrates as well as the calories. i want to start walking around my block but with the heat i am not making it. i do walk around the mall when i have the chance. hoe to hear from you who have similar situations. thank you. glad to be back with spark.
