50 lbs. Lighter


I do NOT talk about my weight. It is soooo insanely personal it is not even funny. But my middle son needs to lose weight as much as I do so I have committed to lose 50 and he will lose 20. It's just not healthy. So off we went in 28 degree Florida weather for our first mile. Tom. we will go again, and next week we will work up to 2 miles and so on. 1 lb. at a time. Off we go!!!

Hooray for you! Make sure you reward yourselves along the journey to losing that weight (not with food, of course!) :). Prizes along the way definitely give more motivation.

I have promised myself a manicure after pound #10 comes off and a pedicure when pound #20 comes off ... I can't wait! (I don't normally do things like that for myself). After that, I'll come up with something else (need to lose 30). I'm currently 5 pounds down! (Go me!)

BTW - I still can't believe it is so cold in Florida!

I've been battling with my weight since I was a teen, but damn those sneaky people at Cadbury make such morish products...to be honest I'm glad of the extra insultaion at the moment....the temperature may go above feezing for the first time in a month in the next few days...woohoo.

You know how much I love to walk...though 10 miles in one go seems to be my limit at the moment...I average 5-6 normally and unfortunately when I do go for a walk I tend to undo any calorie burning with a mass of carbs for dinner...oh well...as long as I'm healthy
