Wow, I'm feeling very encouraged and strong today. My daughter sent me some Vasque hiking shoes that were a bit too small for her and they fit perfectly. What a boon! I can't take them off
Last night while we were sitting around reading I thought, "These shoes feel so good I just have to go for a walk!" I took the dogs and went down to the mailbox and back, about a quarter mile. I have never done that before, but the new energy is fantastic.
Another encouraging thing is finding some new Spark friends, who have similar interests, activities and goals. I'm really looking forward to interacting more and hope I can be as much of an inspiration to somebody else as they have been for me.
I've been reading The Spark, too. I had just finished reading Transformation Road, and watching Hungry for Change, and Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. So much motivation to clean up my daily food choices. I'm making steady progress, learning to track conscientiously and make better decisions.
It's not like I've never lost weight before, but this hopefully is a lasting lifestyle adjustment.
Thank you, Everyone!
