I will be glad when the days and hopefully the pounds lost are in double figures! I am still apparently losing, though I am very impatient, I am making myself stick to 1200 calories or a little more and not starving myself, that may be too little, but I would like to drop 10 or 20 lbs then see where I am at and maybe increase my daily calorie intake a little. At least 20 lbs will be where I was for a long time and doing ok. Then if I can slowly lose another 20 or so I would be really pleased. I feel fine and healthier and am definitely fitter, did extra strength exercises and 15 minutes on the Orbitrek this morning and another 5 after dinner because I felt like it. Went for a nice hike in the woods, that seems easy exercise to me because its so enjoyable, wish I had a horse to ride too! Hopefully we will get some horses later. I am getting a rebounder off Freecycle and will get back into that 10 mins a day, its much better for me to vary the exercise. I don't know where my weights are for the rebounder though. I think I need to focus on the strength exercises for my stomach next! Child-birth definitely did a number on that and it was always my weak area. Anyhow the main thing I need is patience right now, I have been doing affirmations when I do the Orbitrek too and it helps pass the time too.
