so keep up the good work.... i use psychology... when i got joey i kept telling myself that i have to take the dog for a walk cause he needs the exercise. i never said that i have to exercise.. and it worked i got down to 186. then the back slides came in and not being consistant did not help. i wish i wasnt sick now cause i would be out there.
Yeah I am sick now too and still walking wich with the cold like it is hurts my lungs!
But I know me and if I don't just get out there and do it I won't make a habbit of it and things will just slowly go downhill LOL. I don't have a scale for that reason! I weigh about exactly what you do and have for years aswell. Yeah I have to look at it like that too... it's for the dogs!!!!!
Thanks for the encouragement! I am headed out the door now for the daily double I call it.
