Trying Again.

If  at first you don’t succeed – try, try again.  I have not been succeeding.  As it stands I may even weigh a bit more than when I optimistically started this blog.  I mean, how difficult can it be to lose one pound in one week?

Well it is difficult!  And here’s why:

  • Life happens.
  • Stress happens.
  • Change happens.
  • Chocolate happens.
  • Dessert happens.

That sounds so discouraging.  As if I have so little control over my body and my mind.  I feel that incredibly.  And yet, here I am again.  I will not give up and I will not give in.

Yesterday I weighed myself – 247.5 pounds.  Yesterday I walked just over 10000 steps.  On Saturday I walked over 10000 steps too!  Today I took the dogs for a walk and did my Leslie Sansone workout. I did one on Saturday too!

I may not lose a pound this week, but I will try my hardest to get those 10000 steps into my day.  That is the goal for the rest of this month!  And Leslie Sansone’s Walk at Home will be a part of that journey.

It’s my birthday next week, and this was my birthday present for myself.  The fun thing will be to whittle down the cost per walk.  A year’s subscription cost me about $70 Canadian.  So the cost per walk is now $35.  We’ll see how that is at the end of the week.

I will try to keep these posts, short, honest and encouragine to anyone who has a lot of weight to lose!



About Marcia Stehouwer

I have a great life (most days) and a small budget, so being frugal is one of my favourite hobbies. I started this blog after procrastinating for 3 months, on April Fool's Day. I knit, I read, I knit, I work... I am also about a quarter of the way through my goal to lose 100 pounds. So between knitting, working, reading etc., I also do some walking!
