although i started off rough and could not get it right on the first week, now i can say that although i am 3 weeks in, i am on my second week of doing well. i was even able to get in some walking (3 whole miles). i have a pair of shoes i just purchased. they are too high and i need to learn how to walk in them. i will be using these shoes as a part of exercise. i used them at church sunday and boy let me tell you, my muscles tighted and were aching in my calves. my legs were trembling. i thought what a good way to exercise my legs. this obviously will tighten the muscles and work them too. so i am leaving work to go home and put on some shoes i can not walk in. I am looking for exercises to start out that will not hurt me but i can work in until i can do cario. any suggestions will help. i plan to go to the doctor in about two weeks or maybe sooner. i will log my weight then. I hope I am trimming down. They say hunger is good and i've deffinitely been that.
