He's Walking!!

October 9, 2007

Lance took not one, but multiple steps. All by himself. Without hanging on to anything.

He is now a walker. At 10 1/2 months old, my baby has disappeared and a toddler has arrived in his place.

Very bittersweet.

Tales from the Scales: Look Great in 2008! Weight Loss Challenge

I'm a day late in posting, but I guess that's all right.

This week was OK. Not great, but OK. I went up and down like crazy. A couple days I was a little under the weather, so I didn't get ANY exercise. (I've been weighing myself daily. Even just a 20-minute walk each day makes a big difference in the number on the scale!)

Starting weight: 149.8
Last week: 148.0
Today: 146.4
Total lost: 3.4 pounds

Total lost since May 2007: 10.6 pounds

Oh my, walking? Where has the time gone? Fun times ahead!

You say it was just an ok week, ha, you lost how much? Another 1.6 pounds. That's great! I realize the not exercising is a drag, but still, a loss is a loss! Whoo-hoo! Just keep trying at the exercise, I will too.

Hope you feel better so you can get back to walking. You've done a great job losing so far this year, slow and steady wins the race!

Is it any coincidence that you posted about Lance walking and yourself walking?

If I could see into your future, I'd say you're going to be doing a *lot* of walking, running, kneeling and lunging now -- all great exercise!
