Thanks, Marie!  It is a great incentive.  didn't get on treadmill last night but did 20 minutes this morning (Thur I work 12-9 p.m.)  sure wish we would get some warmer weather in the evenings so I could take the dogs and go out behind our house to the park.  There's a walking sidewalk aound it and that would be good.  Just 30 degrees is not warm enough in the evenings.  I'm very susceptible to larnygitis with late nite air. 

Still eating more fruits and veggies, sticking to a 1200 calorie diet, and pushing water so I'm bound to lose.

Marie:

Donna, what an inspiration Mary is to me.  Think I can push that walk up from 6 min. to 10 now.  I'm sure going to try.

Good for you Marie, but remember to increase your time slowly.  

How long have you been doing 6 minutes every day?  If its been a week or longer and you're feeling good after your walk, then you are ready to move it up to 8 or 10 minutes...your choice.  Then do that time consistently for at least another week before you bump it up again.  But, if you are currently exhausted after the 6 minutes, I would suggest waiting another week before you increase the time...just keep doing the 6 minutes every day until your body says you are ready to bump it up.  

Remember, we don't all dance to the same drummer...and sometimes slow and steady wins the race!

BTW, how are the balance exercises going?

 

Mary would tell you..."Don't you dare try to run up that hill - you will get there faster walking!"

wow, some good role models and progress.  Weigh in tomorrow.  My eating has been good, but I need the exercise.  I need to be much more consistent with that.  Because of the recent cataract surgery I am not to do anything strenuous, but there should be no problem with walking.

I have starded to read this board and would like to say that all of you are doing great things for yourself! I am not prepared to join you all right now becasue of my life situation right now. I need to lose 50 pounds and get back to exercising. My doctor tells me to lose weight and exercise more everytime I see him. I know it will improve my quality of life. I am currently staying with my best friend. she has terminal liver cancer and probably has less than a week to live. She is at home with Hospice care. At this point Hospice is not here a lot. So her DIL and I are on duty. My friend is one of the sweetest, nicest ladies you would ever meet. She is probably about 5 feet tall and I am guessing weighs close to 300 pounds. Everything we have to do for her is made more difficult because of her weight.  This morning when we put her on the potty chair she was able to help us a little.But, there is a significant loss of strenght from yesterday.. i don't know if we will be able to get her out of the bed the next time. i don't regret being here, but this experience has made it more urgent to me to lose this weight. I never really thought about weight loss from this point of view and I don't mean to be morbid, I just wanted to share this experience with you all and perhaps give you another reason to pass on that _________________. Fill int the blank with your biggest temptation. Hope all of you have a wonderful, healthful day.

Yeah, for better eating habits this week. Several times we ate out, but more fresh veggies with the meals and another 2 lbs down. Exercise not as much this week as I'm helping my son move but at least going up and down te 3 flights of stairs was some exercise.

Pat,  All I can say at this moment is bless you for being able to help your friend.  My daughter went throuh this very thing with her SO.  It got to the point that he could not get up to the commode and she didn't have the ability to get him u so she put pads under him and told him it was okay for him to go right in bed and she would clean it up.  Sometimes you just have to do what you have to do.  I am glad though that it has given you an incentive to lose weight after this. I will say a prayer for you and your friend and her DIL. for the strength and grace to get through this period.   Ginny
