I started walking yesterday for 15 minutes. Today, I was supposed to walk 1 mile. I finally got up the energy to do that. I have lived on this street for 9 years and have never walked that far. There is a little camp store at the end of the 1/2 mile mark and I always drive. It was great! The only thing is the weather was 64 degrees and damp, so the gnats got me. I live near a lake and the bugs start coming out early. By April the ticks will be out! I probably have to stop in April but I joined a gym so I can go there, which I intend to do tomorrow. Some old friends from 40 years ago found me on face book and that was so much fun. I didn't have my maiden name down but they searched and discovered me. I am having a great time with face book and spark people. I have lost 8 lbs. since January 21, when I joined spark. I was 165 and 5'3". Now I'm 157. I want to get to 135. Well, I hope you all meet your goals.

    Congrats on the progress you are making. What do you think you are doing that is helping you drop the pounds?

I noticed on your front page your goal is 1,000 steps a day .....did you mean 10,000 steps a day?

There is something refreshing about walking out doors. Hope you have a good week! Polly

    Congratulations...on your walking and on your progress! 8 pounds since 1/21 is terrific. Sounds like you'll be at your goal in no time. Keep up the great work!

Which lake? I just wondered if we're anywhere near each other.

Be blessed,
