I did it!

Let the bells ring out and the banners fly! I stepped on the scales after my walk this morning and whoooo hooo!


Right on the nose!!!

I was thinking I wouldn't quite make it, what with the tasting of the baking I've been doing this week in anticipation of the Euchre Championship of the Entire World next Saturday, but lo and behold, all the walking and trying to eat better is paying off!!

Steps walked this week, beginning with last Friday:
Sept. 5 - 14,132 (the hard slog route, includes a fairly steep incline)
Sept. 6 - 14,119
Sept. 7 - 13,502
Sept. 8 - 13,237
Sept. 9 - 13,670
Sept. 10 - 11,973
Sept. 11 - 17,022 (!!)

Today, I was pretty tired when I woke up at 5:05 a.m. (not by choice!) so I didn't go for as long a walk today. Tomorrow, I'll have to go for a fairly short one, as I'm co-hosting a bridal shower, and not in my neck of the woods. But I'll be back doing the long walk on Sunday, because whoo hoo! I might actually meet my ultimate weight loss goal!!

That's wonderful Margaret!!!


I think losing weight is a lot like saving money. Slow and steady.

Congrats Margaret! You're doing awesome!

I've started walking now too.

Thanks, Susanne! Yes, slow and steady is the way to go, I think. Eat better, move more.

Amy - that's wonderful! Here's hoping we have a nice, sunny fall!

Congrats. It is truly inspriational to hear this.

I was hoping to see something today on your programme and was rewarded.

And slow and steady is my motto as well. But I am rowing rather than walking as I was already walking 3 1/2 miles per day...
