I went through this a few years ago. I started exercising again first, but not much seemed to happen. Indeed it seemed to go backwards.
That's the case right now. I got a Nintendo DS for Christmas, and when I can tear it out of the baby's hands (there's a nifty DSware download program for $2 for preschoolers), I use the Personal Trainer program. It has a pedometer that talks to it and gives me feedback.
So, based upon what the pedometer is telling me, I've more than doubled my walking in the past two weeks, although the total is still abysmal.
I've also been working on things that will overall improve my diet. I've been making everyone up their servings of fruits and veggies on a daily basis and overall we've been improving the quality of our carbohydrates, drinking more water, and that sort of thing.
But until I actually give up the suzy-q's and until I replace all of the diet coke wtih water, my weight is not going in the direction I want.
