I'm working on a 10% weight loss for her and me. She's now at 12.5 and 10% will be a 1.25 lb. loss. I'll see how that works for her. Mine is 23 lbs. I'll work on another 10% after that.
We're both working on portion control and laying off the snacks. And just started taking her for short walks - Emmie's stamina isn't too good yet. I've started walking on my lunch breaks while at work. I also need to start off slow - I've had to deal with plantar faciitis and achilles tendonitis in the last year. Took a long time to heal (lack of usual walking routine also inspired weight gain) so I don't ever want to go back to that.
Thanks for the encouragement!
