Thanks for commenting on my blog. If you have your docs approval to start walking, do it! It requires no equipment, just you and a good pair of shoes! When I started I could barely walk 200 steps. My knee ached, my feet hurt, I was winded. Each day I challenged myself to add just one more step! Before you knew it, I was able to walk a mile. Now if I don't walk, I feel like something is missing from my day/ Who woulda thought? We all have to start at our beginning! The important thing is that you start and don't quit! You can do it!!!

I have been overwhelmed by the encouragement and support I have received from fellow Sparkpeople. Thanks again for taking the time to offer words of encouragement! Have an awesome day!

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April .The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs to gain it all back, but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! cut and paste link below...

“The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose.”
-Arnold Bennett
I am turning over a new leaf, thanks to the support of my Sparkfriends! I appreciate your comment on my blog, "Coming Out Of Hiding." Have a healthy week!
