February 2008 November 2008
I was just thinking that it was a little over a year ago that I decided that I would start walking in the mornings before work so that I could get in shape and lose weight. My goal was to lose 50 lbs by December. That is a reasonable goal for a whole year. Well, I've been diligent and continue to walk, and occasionally swim, ride my bike, or go to the gym (a recent purchase) in the afternoons. December has come and gone--I didn't make the 50lbs, but I did lose 35! I feel like I have made enough progress and a complete lifestyle change that it is okay that I didn't meet my December goal. I'm still going to keep working hard this year and hopefully take off the last 15 lbs! I feel fantastic because I'm in shape and living healthy!
