Nothing exciting going on

Monday, February 20, 2012

Had a little "whoosh" reading on the scale this am. Thank goodness! Yeah, I'm eating to get healthy and yada yada yada, but it's really great to see a little positive feedback on the scale, too.
Gotta get going. The foster-pups need their bedtime walk. It's amazing how I'll do for them what I've never consistently done for myself. They need walks. It's part of their healing (and no, that's not a spacy new age theory, it really helps them) so we go for walks. At least two a day. Generally at least a mile. For some of you, a mile is nothing, but I was in pretty lousy shape a few months ago, and a brisk walk around the block was really painful. A couple of brisk miles a day is HUGE for me.
Life isn't always peachy, but it's certainly getting better.

    A mile or two daily is not definitely not something to frown about. Great job!

    "Whoosh" scale reading! I love that.

I'm with you that, yes, the long-term healthy lifestyle goals are paramount, but the immediate, short-term number on the scale is what's on my mind most days. The Fat2Fit Radio guys said something a few weeks ago that really resonated with me. They were talking about people being impatient over the time involved in losing weight and said, "Do you really think that after living a decade or 2 at your goal size and shape you're going to care if it took a whole year or 2 to get to that shape using a strategy that has easily kept you in that shape for all of these years?" (It was so good I wrote it down.)
