I wish you success "sticking with it," GB. My advice is: Don't skip a day. A day turns into two days turns into "I'll start over next week"...

GB, that's the way to go. I applaud your commitment.

Make sure you have plenty of Smart Water on hand.

I actually feel guilty if I skip my weekly group hike, a run, or one of my bike rides. Now, why don't I have this guilt feeling when I over stuff myself with food?

I have been doing about 3.5 miles a day for a year now, at a brisk pace.
And I am 20 pounds lighter!
Just walking and watching what I eat; quantity and quality!

After a few months, I found that if I didn't get my walk, I was antsy and felt off.

My 2 hounds really like it too. We go along a creek greenway, and they get to swim
twice.

On days like yesterday, when the heat index was 104, it gets a bit sticky....

I started exercising after my vacation in May. I ride my exercise bike 30 minutes a day, plus lift some weights. I've slowly been increasing the resistance on the bike. I absolutely HATE to exercise but I feel good when I get it done and I'm starting to see a little results. I also walk the dogs two times a day at 20 minutes per walk.

Hang in there GB - slow but sure wins the race.

I lost weight years back..put some back on...took a little off, put it back on. I'm at the losing stage again...well, I'm trying anyway .....hence my Splenda thread in baking.

It's really a lifestyle change, with very little "going back" and that's my downfall - candies, cake and cookies !!!!

I'm anyway a small eater and I already exercise 6 mornings a week, and ride my exercise bike as many nights as i can....at some point I'll have to accept my body for what it is/isn't.

Ditto GB. We're doing exactly the same thing and we too looked at how big we were getting during our vacation. We gained 5 extra pounds during our vacation and I began to feel dizzy and shortness of breath. No more fatty foods for me or hubby now. We've been walking everyday except for these couple of days that are headed with a hurricane. Good luck to you all GB. You will see a difference in a few weeks.
