Hi All
What I’ve been doing…
I had this very old stationary bike by ‘Vitamaster’…I think this was from the 60’s and daily I would cycle for an hour. It worked for fine for a while…then the tension indicator stopped working. No problem…I just kept pedaling without it. Then the bike chain kept slipping off. That was just an aggravation to keep putting it back on, so I took it off. I was still able to bike and that was ok with me. Then I started to experience grinding noise. I’m sure it was loose bearings or something…it was pretty loud and made it hard to pedal. I had to turn the volume up on the TV in order to hear above the noise. LOL
Then I decided it’s time to get another stationary bicycle.
I put up ads looking for one and searched EBAY and Craig’s List too.
The other day I stopped at Sports Authority to see what they had…they were all too big and more than I wanted to spend. I did a few more errands, said…what the heck, let me stop in KMART and see what they had to offer. Boy did I make out. There was a bike on clearance, the Floor Model…or I should say the model that was sitting high up on a platform. The size and style was just what I was looking for and the price was right too. Well this morning I put in an hour. Such a difference, nice fat padded seat and so quiet too. I’m going to enjoy this.

I’m making progress!
Doctor’s scale showed 160…a fifteen pound weight loss. YAHOO!
My daily blood readings have drastically changed which makes me really happy and seeing a drop in my A1C blood test too.
I’m not done…and I know I have to keep this up for my health. I see my doctor again in January and hope to improve in my numbers even more.
I hope you are all reaching your goals. Never get discouraged and never give up.
Slow and steady wins the race!
