October will make 4 yrs since my bypass surgery and I'm happy to say I'm still at my goal weight. The way I keep motivated and excited is by walking .... I solve all the problems in the world when I walk. *LOL* I put my music on - and just go. When I set out walking - I never really know which route I'll be taking, which is fun going in a different direction keeps me from being bored.
Two and a half years ago I got my husband into hiking and from spring through fall, we go hiking at least once on the weekends in the beautiful Black Hills of S.D. - he's dropped 30 lbs in 2 yrs! I also got interested in 5k races, which was sooo much fun that I now do half marathons. My next half marathon (13.1 miles) is this Sunday - The Leading Ladies Marathon. It is an awesome race. Don't think for one minute that I run these things either .... I'm a fast walker - lots of people walk 5k's and marathons. It is thrilling!
Keep up the good work - keep track of your food/drink intake and stay active. Don't loose sight of your goals both physically and mentally and you'll do just fine.
