I finally lost some weight this week - 3 lbs. I lost the 1 lb. I gained last week and 2 more. I've finally admitted that I need to "GET MOVING". I'm very busy, work full-time, have 3 active kids, coach softball, play softball, am my youngest daughter's Sunday School teacher and my 2 older daughter's Girl Scout leader. However, with all that - I'm still not getting enough exercise. You want to know why? I work a desk job. I'm doing all the things to help, park further away, go into the bank instead of drive through, etc. But if I don't take a 2 1/2 - 3 miles walk every day, I'm not getting in enough "steps". Well, I find it very hard to devote 45 minutes every day for a long walk. I'm doing my best and I'm getting in more steps (I started using a pedometer almost 2 weeks ago and it was an eye opener!) so I've increased my activity and it shows - 3 lbs. I've been eating right and rarely getting over 1,500 calories. This is where I tend to give up. I'm 16 lbs. away from my goal weight and the weight is not coming off easily, so I give up. I'm determined this time!
