Okay so I found a Walk Away the Pounds DVD and started it yesterday. I can get just a little past 1/4 mile but that gives me about 8 minutes of exercising before my back started to hurt really bad. However, it was fun, I got my heartbeat going, felt the burning in my muscles and actually felt good. My doctor told me just to do it until I can't and increase as it gets easier. But going from NO exercising to 8 minutes a day is GREAT for my body. Still keeping up with eating right and I am so impressed at myself.
My grand daughter got chocolate cake yesterday. She divided the cake into 3 pieces (her, my son and my daughter). She knows I am on a diet so she didn't offer me any (good girl). I wanted that cake so much and a month ago I could eat the entire thing. But all I did was lick the fork and that was enough. I didn't cut a small piece, I didn't think about eating anymore. Just that small taste (about 1/8 tsp) was enough to get rid of the craving and allowed me to move on. I'm doing it. !!!!!!!!!
