Awesome job! You know, you can visualize each pound by four sticks of butter! Five pounds would be 20 of them that you have lost!

I'm going to repeat something I wrote in another line because for some reason I couldn't find this one.

I sometimes find myself accompanying my husband for an appointment and wind up waiting for usually at least a half hour, sitting in a waiting room, be it medical or for the car. For some reason last year I realized that at the car dealership I could walk the lot in laps. He prefers to wait in the waiting room, and he knows where I am. I did it yesterday, when he was waiting for a medical appointment. I just "did" walking laps around the building. No longer will I be captured by hospitals and car dealerships. I will walk!

This is one of those cases that having a cell phone is handy. Your DH can call and let you know that the appointment is over, or even that he is at the cash now.

Walking was my thing for not smoking on my breaks at work. It's been working so far! I can get in a mile on a 15 minute break!

Working out is getting to be a bit of a problem for me. for the past almost decade I've been taking classes at the local hospital. Then the hospital moved out of town, so the half mile or so (actually more like 3/4) each way, I suddenly had to drive. Then the hospital fitness center canceled all but yoga and spin (neither are my thing), and scheduled even those for hours at around 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. So, I'm down to walking, and not doing good at self-discipline.

I thought I'd arranged to meet with a friend who also missed our Monday and Friday 9 a.m. classes to walk. But that isn't working out either. So now my choice is to drive to the next town. I'd walk, but I swear, this year, every time I get dressed and ready to take a walk, it starts to rain.

Claire, you only need yourself to work out. Get a good hat and rain coat. You will be ready to go anytime. I went out today and got soaked in a torrential downpour. After about 5 minutes of feeling stupid( and soaked) I loved being out there. Good luck and happy walking!

Another vote for walking. We try to get in at least 2 miles a day, except in winter (broke an ankle on the ice). I use a recumbent bike/rowing machine for inclement weather. I walk in the rain too, figure I won't melt, unlike my sister, from the West...

Sure helps keep the middle age creep from, er, creeping.

Good luck!

Rock, I know, I know. It is just that suddenly I had a change in pattern, so haven't gotten back in my stride.
