Today I hiked with my hubby for 45 minutes and then came home, cooled down abit and did a half hour, 1.75 miles on the treadmill. Although, after I was done, I was covered in sweat and thinking "OMG", but, after a few minutes, I felt great. And, something I am finding out: I can do way more than I THINK I can. Yes, I'm packing around an extra 25 lbs of fat, but, I'm way more fit than I used to be at 256 lbs. After gaining 4 1/2 lbs over the holidays and having a really hard time getting it off, I really feel good looking at something else than just the # on the scale! I notice on The Biggest Loser this year there are a real variety of body types and degrees of weight to lose, and I think that is really good, as it gives us all someone we can relate to. I see the largest of them doing workouts that I wouldn't believe possible and it makes me say to myself "suck it up, if they can do it, so can you!".
