It is now over a year I believe since my last entry. I am starting over. AGAIN. I feel vaguely more optimistic this time, as I have started using the treadmill with my youngest sons "coaching." I log my miles on a nearby calender and he, and the othe kids check my progress, usually giving me a high five or some other form or phrase. I do feel better, usually on the days I do walk. I try to do 6 miles a week. At least a 1.25 miles which is usually the 30 minute mark. I will try to always do the 30 minutes. After that, with pushing and resing, pushing and resting, I work on getting the mileage. So, 30 minutes and over a mile almost everyday is what hopefully will bring me at least some success this time around. Tirede of being tired. Tired of being the biggest one wherever we go. I get the sense from some people and was even told by one that "you'd be pretty if you lost weight." I sense that's true, but as 55 years old gets closer, I have to think that no matter what I do, I'm going to get old, be old, and it'll be too late. The time is NOW! Wish me luck!
