So it seems like I've lost my followers here but I am going to continue blogging about this because it's good for me. This blog keeps me honest and on track most of the time. After I last blogged I buckled down and started watching the food intake and I really increased my walking. I took a mini job walking a dog 3 times a week for a friend of mine who had just adopted a dog. In addition to that I've been meeting up with friends 1-3 times a week to walk. There are days when I don't want to, days when I'd rather sit and eat cupcakes but I do it. The dog walking is a commitment I HAVE to keep because it's a job and walking with friends is therapuetic. I weighed in on April 1st and was 301. Monday will be 6 weeks from when I started. This morning I weighed 292. I really hope to hit 291 Monday so I can hit the 10 pound mark but we shall see. Weekends are tough and tomorrow is Mother's Day :) Even if I stay where I am today I am happy with 9 pounds in six weeks. Slow and steady, right?
