I am very pleased.  I have lost just a little over 16 pounds since the first of the year, but already I am able to take my daily walks without my cane.  I am only 53, but the idea of already having to use a cane everyday, well, I was not happy about it. 

I am able to walk more.  Because I am getting more exercise, I am sleeping better.  Also, since I am walking more, my back is hurting less.  Today was my first day walking without my cane.  I made 3 circuits around the parking lot at work, and nothing hurt (back, hips, knees, feet) when I finished.  It is getting easier to get up from my chair during the day.  Still not quite popping up, but I am getting there.

Hope everyone has a successful weekend!

  1. 16 pounds???? Holy crap! Good for you! That is great, and the fact that you already having NSVs, that is too cool.

    It's amazing how when things start clicking, a good cycle starts...who knew there was even a 'good' cycle?!?!?! Good work!
