Weigh In Day

Well I am down another pound-but still have two more to lose to be where I was a month ago-before I gained 7 pounds back-YIKES! I so need to get on the ball here before our vacation. The other day I took the kids for a walk into town-about 1.2 miles there and back. It was a good walk and took about 45 minutes. At one point J asked me "Mommy why you not pushing hard?". I had to explain to him it was very difficult for mommy to push the double stroller up the hill so it slowed us down a bit. I'm talking about an incline that is almost straight up-it is ridiculously difficult to push the stroller up. Anyway if I can keep that up daily or even every other day that would be great exercise.

Also I really want to get back to running. I use to love running-although I was never really fast I just enjoyed the quiet time. I don't have a running partner but I'll have to make due. Maybe after a few weeks my DH will join in-but at this time he is not showing any interest.

Sadly Tales from the Scales is closing it's "bloggy doors" on April 17th. I have found great motivation and inspiration from this website and am sad to see it go. I wish everyone that visited good luck in their weight loss journey

Since Tales from the Scales is closing I will start a "Friends of Tales from the Scales" blog roll. I may or may not have added some of these folks under favorite links but not sure. So hopefully we will be able to continue to motivate and inspire each other on our weight loss journey!

Great job on going back down. I'm still up from my low, too. And I will be putting anyone who wants to be there on my blogroll to continue a Wednesday check in.

Great job in losing another pound this week. I tend to yo-yo with my weight, but am hopeful this time it will stick.

The double stroller can really add to the walking workout, can't it? I notice a huge difference when I walk with and without mine.

I will miss TFTS also. Best wishes.
