When I started this journey, walking more than a couple of blocks was hard work. By keeping at it and doing just a little more each day, it got easier and the weight started coming off. Now I'm running, not just walking! Whatever form of exercise you choose to do, keep doing it and adding just a little more each day or each week; you will be amazed at the progress you make by pushing yourself to do just a little more.

It makes me at least feel like I'm doing something!
