On the Road Again

I am back walking. 30 minutes. Well, today I walked and ran, yesterday I only walked. So that is good. I followed Andrew's advice and forced much water, and I feel much better. I am glad for this piece of advice. Thanks
It took a great deal of mental pushing to get myself downstairs to the treadmill. I had made a new goal on SparkPeople. That was to get down there before 8 am. I have found that if I don't exercise before this time, I just struggle with it all day. I spend the whole day dreading it, not getting in the shower, just procrastinating. So I had to make that goal to help me downstairs in the morning. I have a time limit.
That is all. I have been doing weights on T, T, S. I have noticed myself inching back up on the scale to almost my original weight. They say muscles weigh more than fat, but this is very discouraging. I ate some chocolate yesterday. Isn't that the routine?
Today I am watching what goes in my mouth and not losing my perspective. I need a visual. I need a picture of the DIL2 who inspired me to start this in the first place. She has lost, I think, 30 pounds, she is back fitting comfortably into her wedding dress. She looks absolutely beautiful, and I want to follow suit. She is running half marathons. She did this in less than a year. I am so proud of her and grateful for her example. My two oldest sons have committed to exercising 60 days straight, Sunday's excluded. I didn't want to be left behind, so I joined them a week later.
Here I go again. Wish me luck. Urge me on, send me pictures and inspirations. Go Team!

I do wish you luck. You're inspiring me to at least think about exercising again.

Pay no attention to the scale. It's deceptive especially when you're working out. Pay attention to how your clothes fit.

Besides drinking lots of water, make sure you get adequate protein. I drink a whey protein shake every day (when I'm being good) and it makes a lot of difference.

You go girl!

Aahhhh.... Dear Friend, I wish you luck too. And will try to build more salads and less gravy centered meals. :) Keep going now, as you inspire me a great deal.

RG, back atcha girl! You inspire me! according to past posts, you have lost 70 pounds! WOW. I cannot imagine.

Sailor, my dearest love, You make the most delicious meals. Am I a spoiled brat or what? It is more fun to make dinner together, and you always make it so fun. It is a celebration every night. I love you dearly, sweetest Friend.
thanks for your support and for joining me in this quest.
