If you have a mall nearby, you could walk there. Many malls are covered, so you can walk there rain or shine, Sometimes, I just walk around my house, room to room for 30 minutes or so.

Hi, Deb!

I remember you, too, as being very encouraging to everyone to stay with the diet. I really appreciate that. How is your music career going? I write song lyrics but just for a hobby. I think I can do this diet for good now, as I have the proper mindset and am very motivated. As they say, one picture ...

Day Two

SUCCESS WITH DIET, SUCCESS WITH EXERCISE.

It was a little tough yesterday, but I looked at an old picture of how I used to look, and in the mirror how I look now. That did it, and led to another successful day.

Sometimes in life we take one step back, but it's okay, we can just take two steps forward! There is an old Japanese saying, "fall down seven times, get up eight!" We can do it! The best is yet to come! Best regards, Bob

First Day Success

SUCCESS. I have a dog and he is insisting on daily walks , so this will help me a lot. The walking along with my program of doing pushups, situps, and deep knee bends should contribute to my weight loss goals.
