A quickie...


I must admit that investing in the pedometer is one of the best things I have bought this year :D and really, I never thought I'd hear myself say stuff like that! I check it constantly, and when I feel I am slacking I just get up and walk a few more steps. I am aiming for my 10,000 steps a day and so far I haven't been to far from acheiving it...

day 1 3, 597 (this was only from 6pm onwards)
day 2 7, 775
day 3 12, 297
day 4 10, 313
day 5 11, 333
day 6 6, 122 (cinema sucked half the day away)
day 7 10, 367

Not a bad first week I feel. It's only Tuesday and I can feel it in my bones that I have lost this week. (well, not just in my bones, I did accidently fell upon the scales this morning and it just so happened to show a loss) Also I got my frickin' wii age down to a gap of 3 years! BRING IT ON.
Also huge thanks to everyone who commented yesterday. It gave me much to reflect upon. You guys are awesome.

Wow, that's a nice-looking pedometer! Mine is a boring grey color. Glad to hear counting your steps is working for you!
I haven't worn mine lately because most of the pants I wear to work don't have pockets, and when I wear it clipped to the waistband of my pants, it makes my shirts stick out weirdly. Wish I could find somewhere else to clip it!

Sweet pedometer! I've thought about getting one as well, but never know which ones are truly accurate? Everyone says different things....I wonder now how many steps I'm really getting??Something to ponder LOL- Great job on the loss and good luck for your "official" WI.

I'm catching up too and I am totally impressed with your progress and that pedometer is fab. Where did you get it from?

Your sis is afraid that you will be prettier than her, she will be pleased really, but it is difficult for friends and family to cope with someone in their midst changing. She will cope, concentrate on yourself and prove that you will be the same person, just slimmer and a lot more confident (and healthy!).

I see you are doing the Race for Life (R4L) too - I signed up last week and am very excited!
