I really haven't increased my time spent exercising. I'm doing it everyday, but have stayed around the 15-20 minute mark, (yeah I know pretty lame, but more than I used to do). I did become very conscious of the number of calories I'm eating and have tracked everything I've swallowed over the past 4 days. I'm not really sure if the Byetta (day 3) has decreased my appetite but I think it has made me more aware of noticing the difference between when my body is actually hungry and when it's just my mind telling me I'm hungry. I've always been a big nibbler and boredom tends to push me into the kitchen a lot. I'm trying very hard to stay busy elsewhere. I wish I could wrap my mind around the "joy of exercise", but so far I'm still waiting for the euphoria and exhilaration of the "runner's high". So far it's just me taking those baby steps, plodding along, on the dreadmill starring at the console lights, in total disbelief that it's only been 4 minutes since I got on it!
