Weigh Day! - Total Loss - 18.6 pounds

Slow but sure.  A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.  A weight loss of over a hundred pounds starts with a single pound.  Slow and steady wins the race.  Inch by inch it's a cinch, yard by yard it's hard.  A little goes a long way.  Losing just 10% of your body weight creates major health benefits (I'm not there yet...but close!)  Rome wasn't built in a day.  A little dab'll do ya.  Eensy-weensy spider....uh, I think I'm losing my train of thought here.

Yes, I wish I was losing 2 pounds a week, but I'm happy for any downward trend that comes my way!  Yesterday was another hungry day, but I managed to stay within normally accepted parameters.  This week I'm trying to add more exercise to my routine by getting up earlier and going for a walk every morning.  I keep reminding myself what I'm working on here is a LIFESTYLE CHANGE and not a DIET.  Weight loss is simply a bi-product of the changes I'm making.  Oddly enough, I'm also getting more things done!

I guess a little dab really can do ya, one little dab at time.
