1. I’ve lost 24 pounds over the past 4 months and have promised myself that I’m going to keep drinking enough water to help keep that off and lose the additional 21 pounds I have to go. I’m very much a comfort/emotional eater so I have to keep substituting healthy choices when I get the junk food cravings (at least most of the time; let’s be realistic). Once I get through my first season of being a volleyball coach I’ll have time to start walking/running again. Between that, substitute teaching and having 4 kids who are all involved in after school activities, free time is a bit scarce right now. 🙂

      1. Thank you. It feels really good and I like that I’m setting a good example for my 12 year old daughter. She’s playing volleyball this fall and has been working on making better food choices. I can tell by looking at her that she’s in better shape. She said she has more energy and “just feels better”. That makes it all worthwhile.

  2. I was ill for a long time and put on an awful lot of weight. I am now past the ‘ill’ stage but still in the ‘trying to get fit’ stage. If I compared myself to other people I’d give up now, but I don’t. I’m focused on my own health and I *am* improving. Pilates, horse riding and swimming are my current activities. When I’m even better I want to go back to dancing, but I don’t think I’m quite there yet. But it’s wonderful to even begin feeling better – and even more wonderful to be losing weight and seeing small improvements, even if it has taken a
    l o n g time. It’s a good example for my children, too, because they saw me on days where I couldn’t get out of bed.
