i am really losing weight. I do not have any scales , but I know that I have lost a few pounds because I actually put on a pair of jeans!! A size 12. I have been having to wear sweats or other type of elastic waist pants for the past few months becuase I did not want to buy new jeans. I did not want to buy any news ones in a bigger size because i wanted to lose weight and now i am seeing that i have lost some weight. The next time i go to my moms i will weigh myself. I am so happy. I hate wearing sweats all of the time. Now I can wear jeans. It has been a hard few months. I have not eaten any chips , snacks, or Coca cola !!!!! NONE!!!!!! For snacks i have been eating veggies, fruit, or cereal. I also have not been eating a huge dinner or lunch like i used to. also i have been walking every where.

That is AWESOME!!!! I can't wait to be in your shoes... I had to go buy some big jeans though because I didn't have anything to wear when we went out somewhere. I'm actually on my way out the door to take my 3-mile walk. Keep up the good work!!!

I love going for walks. I started going for walks out of need because i was without a car and i had to walk 5 miles to the post office to mail packages from selling on ebay. My little one loves the walks too. Put him in his stroller and when I am done doing what i need we go to the library.

That is sooo cool!!! Hardly anyone walks anywhere now a days. Most things are too far for me to walk, but I do try to get my exercise every day around my neighborhood. I started walking out of necessity though too, kinda. About 15 years ago when my kids were little they played soccer and during practice we'd get cold watching them so some of us moms started walking around the field during practice to keep warm. Me and another mom kept it up even after soccer season was over! Been doing it ever since.

I am feeling so good and I have found that I can be more busy because i have more energy. I love it already. I used to be so small, but after 3 babies I had gained weight and not been able to lose it for anything. I was a size 1 when I was younger and first met my husband!!!!! So that is a huge difference.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Just giving up soda and walking will show a significant loss. Keep up the good work now that you have found what the culprits were that were keeping the weight on, you can eradicate them for good!
