Haven't been able to Blog for a while as work is keeping me busy nights and weekends. But today I've had a day off, so here I am. Thanks to all my friends who have encouraged me during this stressful time!! I'm teetering between 172 and 1... Read more

I'm blogging today instead of tomorrow because I'm about to unplug my router and move it to a new room. I'm not quite sure if it will work when I plug it back in. So this week I've gone beyond the first ten pounds and feel like I'm actually on... Read more

Day 21. In 21 days I've lost 4 pounds, not great, not bad, just is. I'm a bit bummed by the articles I've read about cars (I have to drive almost 150 miles per day - and 30 miles just to get milk) and sitting (I sit to work). I suppose I cou... Read more

First week is over and I've lost 3 pounds. For me to start thinking this will work, I'll need to lose at least another pound this next week. I expect slow progress, but I'd like it to be as steady as possible! Saturday I walked 30 minutes... Read more

Back to work, so walking is a problem. I won't know whether I have time to walk until this evening - and since I'm a morning person, I'm more likely to skip it. I have to remind myself that I want to walk more than I want to sit! ... Read more

How nice it would have been to start the Blog on Day 1 but so it is. Today being a day away from work, I finally have time to begin. I've already lost 2 pounds - yay - and today I was able to walk for 30 minutes at one time rather than break ... Read more
