Every morning my dog and I go for a walk. If I don't take her she will whine until I do. The whining is annoying so I take her in the snow, rain, fog, anything. If she doesn't want to go I still make myself go because I feel like I can take on the day.
My two yellow labrador retrievers have been wonderful companions on my weight loss journey, and they are loving all of the walks! Especially my youngest pup, Jojo. He and I go on our "Nature walk" every chance we get. It is a lovely stroll through Lake Forest and is about 5 miles with plenty of hills and neighbors to say hi to (and they love Jojo!). Having a dog can be a wonderful for motivation and for getting out, being social, and living an active life. 200
