Added note, thanks for giving me the actual date...I had you and another sister a bit confused as to dates...I didn't know yours and thought I had put it in my book (on a sticky note) on the correct date. Now I have it all untangled..at least till next year.
Sounds like you will have to bring the spectacular to him for next year. so sorry to hear of the pain issue. Laughter is supposed to help ease pain...maybe you can find something that will be infused with humor enough to make him laugh. 142 days ago
Thanks for the SparkGoodie! I will have to see about a photo...My best picture taker has moved to Denver...a bit out of reach. I have lost my weight so slowly that there is little visible change. Wish I could find a good BEFORE pic!
Re: the Fitbit..I love mine..but it is not the Fitbit that brings success...it is using it as a tool. It tracks steps, flights of stairs and sleep. I don't bother with the supposed calories burned. I have found the fitbit helpful in getting me to challenge myself to go a little further, do a little more, building on successes. At one point, I challenged myself to keep adding flights of stairs until I did 75 flights in one day (and was sore afterward!) Now I aim for 10 flights as part of each day's steps taken. I have discovered that upping my steps helps knock off a few more pounds. It depends, of course, on how you walk, and how consistently you walk. I don't run, and sometimes don't even walk fast...but I make a point now of walking consistently every day. I would wish it weren't quite so time consuming, but I find listening to NPR as I walk helps..and now my husband, in an effort to get his belly back under control, has agreed to walk with me. 255 days ago
