***The Simple Pleasures of Life***
A warm sunny day!
A field of wheat grass blowing in a soft breeze!
The smell of rain!
Big puffy white clouds!
A freshly mowed lawn!
Watching the blue green ocean waves roll in!
The touch of my husband's hand on the small of my back!
Every morning is a gift to me and the chance to start my day off right. I do enjoy mornings sitting on my porch. It is my quiet time. One of the advantages of getting up early, having family raised and living the country life.

* Lose Weight Like a Man
Bridging the Gender Weight Loss Gap
The good news for women is that the weight loss journey seems to be a marathon, not a sprint. Although men may start out the "race" with a distinct advantage, lapping women when it comes to dropping pounds, the women do eventually catch up.
In a UK study, a group of overweight women and men started one of four popular weight loss plans. At the two-month mark, the men had lost twice as much weight and three times as much body fat as the women, but at that point the gap started the shrink.By six months, the rate of weight loss was roughly the same for both genders.

*Escape from the cardio trap. There is a place for cardio in every exercise plan, but if you're spending hours each week on the treadmill or the sidewalk and seeing little change, step outside of your comfort zone and try some free weights or weight machines. Building more muscle mass is the single most effective way to burn fat and calories more efficiently, and to close the gender weight loss gap.

*Be compassionate to yourself. Strive to accept your body as it is, and look at weight loss as a bonus of healthy living instead of the sole reason for it.

    Thanks for the tip on Team Points. I didn't know that. Here's another question. I used RunKeeper to track walking and am connected with SP, but it does not show up. I want to see my steps on Steps Leaderboard. Any help there? Thank you-Steve
