Bake the cookies Suzi, just taste them.

DH and I have been walking every other day for 45 minutes. We started eating home cooked meals which are healthier than restaurant food. We feel we've lost a couple of pounds (hopefully some inches too) in a week since we got back from vacation. It's amazing how much weight you gain by driving all day during road trip vacations. Argh!

Dear all,
You want to lose weight?

1. Eat less - choose a bowl/plate smaller than the one from which you normaly eat.

2. Exercise your body more via swimming or cycling or simply walking.

3. Stop consumming empty calories - aka - alcohol!

In esence, it is as simple as that. However, I do recognise that it is not as simple as that as many other posters will register!

All the best,
p.s In reality, I`ve told you the truth. Smaller plates and more exercise COULD give you the result that you require.

I did Tae Bo with DH last night. I forgot how good it feels afterwards! If only I could always remember that, I'd be so much more motivated to do it! (Too bad I balanced out the workout with some snickerdoodles and then today we had shakes).

YAY SUZIE!!! Doesn't it feel good when your at the giving end of the big clothes?? I was there once, I'll get there again!! Good for you girl!!!

Well, I have a week before I go back to doc, but, my new dial scales, had digital, but, not accurate at all, says I lost 12lbs this last week. I'm hoping a lb or 2 is weight and not just the water going from the diuretic,but, just getting rid of the swelling, makes me feel SO much better!! LOL I still can't get a lot of excersise until doc ok's it, but, I get some with all the fast walking I have to do all day at the storage facility with showing units and checking in Uhauls all day, especially Friday and Saturday, whew, bzy bzy bzy days, lol
