emoticon Going Down hill is scary October 31, 2008
The accountability challenge suggested to me, has made a difference in my life. I could say I wanted to loose weight, but until I took my life in my own hands, until I kept accurate track of what I was doing, I did not know what I was doing. But now I do.
In the month of September I lost 5 pounds from the day I started tracking my food.
In October I lost 6 pounds and kept daily track of food and exercise and reported it to my team members. I have increased my exercise and made better choices with my food.
I am continuing with the challenge for November. emoticon

    Well done, keeping trqck of the food sure does help.
going down hill isn't as scarey as up hill would be after all that hard work. LOL
Just be sure not to go roller coasting, level ground is the best I think.

  You are doing so AWESOME!!!
It is eye opening isn't it.
I love the phrase "took my life in my own hands."
Isn't that the truth.

On another note: I too love Tai Chi, do you know of a decent Tai Chi tape? The ones I have looked at teach too fast or else I am too slow of a 'picker upper' of moves.

Take care - I am glad you are doing good!!!
