Weight Loss Mission: LOTS OF WALKING!

So with my son starting school on Monday (August 29th, 2011), I have to do a LOT of walking to get him to school. It's not really a far walk, but when I looked up the mileage, it's a pretty good distance to be walking everyday.

So from my home to his school, it's 0.4 miles. That's a total of 0.8 miles for me to take him to school. Then I have to pick him up, so that's another 0.8 mile round trip for me. In total, I'm walking 1.6 miles everyday! Today I took a little extra walk to Starbucks near my apartment and that added an extra 0.6 miles onto my walking today! W00t W00t!

I've just weighed myself and I'm down a total of 14lbs! I'm currently 186lbs. and that means I'm down 2 pounds in 3 days! It's amazing what walking can really do for weight loss.

Not to mention I feel SO much healthier now that I'm walking a lot. Walking has always been my favorite form of exercise but I honestly haven't done as much as I would have liked to in the past. (This next part may be a little too much for some, but we're all adults here right? We've all dealt with this...) I've also noticed that I'm not so constipated anymore. I always felt bloated and whatnot, and I DO KNOW that walking does help with that, but I didn't know it could be so fast or THAT good! LOL!

I just feel GREAT over all... physically and emotionally. I have the support and love from the people I care about most and that's the best.

Weight Loss Mission: 12 Gone. 38 To Go!

So I know I haven't written in a while, but that's because nothing interesting has truly happened.

My weight is still going DOWN, but it's very slow. I guess after you loose the first 10 pounds, you kinda level off. LOL. But it's okay. I'm down 12 pounds all together!

My sister-in-law said she could send me some running shoes and once that happens, I can start running! :) I've been wanting to for a while but I don't have anything close to shoes I can run in.

Anyone know anyone who goes jogging in flip-flops or wedges?

Lets hope that I can loose this extra 38-ish pounds before next summer. I'd LOVE to wear a bikini ;-)
