I finally did it after 10 months. I finally was able to get 10,000 steps in one day. The pain medicine has worked to the point that I can exercise regularly. I've done it twice this week. I am so happy. Last night, I got home and needed ... Read more

So over the weekend, I did well on food intake. I was much lower than before. Got some steps in on Sat. Sun, did some pilates in the house and paid for it with a sore back for the rest of the day. Ah well. Couldn't sleep Sunday ni... Read more

I'm not sure when I last logged in. But what a kick in the teeth. After the last blog, I started walking and was doing ok again. I felt weak, but that was to be expected after being sick. A few days later, I decided to go golfing. I'd... Read more
Not my favorite way to lose weight

Had a terrible run of diarrhoea - 7 days. I went to the hospital and got four liters of saline administered through an IV. Terrible. I tried to keep up drinking, but even that went straight through me. No hope of exercise. I simpl... Read more

And it wreaks havoc on motivation and exercise plans. I was wiped out after Sunday, when I walked over 20,000 steps. I took it easy on Monday, but the rains started and now I have no ambition to walk around. Combined with stressful work sit... Read more

I didn't know this was tracked for me. Interesting. 541 hours of exercising. 22 days. All this in one year. I've lost weight, but 22 days? I wish I had worked harder on controlling food intake to really see the results I'd... Read more

Big day of rain. Had to go to a meeting and decided to walk, only to find rain in the air. Even with the umbrella, I got good and soaked. Got a ride back. Made 6000 steps by 1030am, so I should be ok for 10,000. If I have to walk around ... Read more

I will not be making my goal of 280 by July 15. I've had a good run, I've lost over 20lbs, and perhaps as much as 40. I didn't weigh my self at the begining, it was too scary. I have made progress in other areas. I am in the best sh... Read more

Wasn't feeling well in the morning, so I didn't go to work. Later, after the bug passed I was feeling better and went for my walk. I was able to do 11,400 steps in 90 minutes. This is a big increase from last year, when I would have struggled... Read more
