I joined SP back in January 2010 and until recently I have found it hard to grasp motivation but I finally grabbed it by the horns and I'm holding on!
It has been very hot and humid around here too. I have been either doing the Walk At Home or if I go out to walk I go around 8:00 in the evening after the sun is beginning to set but before it gets dark.
God is my strength!
NOTE: My weight loss ticker is done up for shorter goals and once reached will change goal weight again.
Pulling weeds is an excellent squat exercise. I remember doing about an hour of that, and not being able to lower myself to a chair the next day. So walking out to do it, and doing a few minutes is a great way to start yourself moving again. Good Girl!!

Thank you all so much for the warm welcome. I am thinking that I am in the right place for support and everything else. I did put on my walking shoes this morning and while I didn't walk far, at the far end of my walk is a large patch of weeds that needs to be gone as soon as possible. I did some pulling and cutting for about 15 to 20 minutes and then walked back. It was hot, but I felt good that some of those darn weeds are gone. It will probably take me about 2 weeks to finish that weed forest, but it will be worth it--both in exercise and completed task.
Now I need to get started logging what I eat. LOL--it all takes time, but I WILL succeed.
In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
I joined this group in May and then got really busy and did not come back. I finally decided that I need to do something. On Monday morning I am going to walk a while. Not sure how far or how long because of the heat in our area, but figure that if I put my shoes on and get out the door, I will do something and that is better than nothing. I have about 100 lbs to lose. I have already lost about 30 lbs in the last year, so I am started, but I haven't done much in the last 6 or 8 months. We have lots of animals here on our little farm and I look forward to meeting many of you and sharing laughs, tear, successes and failures. Thanks in advance for all the help and encouragement I hear this site is known for.
