Hi, funny that you said that; Not really. We walk almost daily for some exercise, but I needed/wanted more, so I bought a new bike. I was doing so good too. My goal was to ride for one hour per day and I was doing it. Well I crashed my new bike and I'm still healing up from my accident. Long story, short, [OK, I guess it didn't turn out to be short] I was on the sidewalk and saw a lady walking form the other end, so I decided it would be easier for both of us if I went into the street. At the bottom of the driveway, where it meets the street, there was a little bit of water. Evidently there were also some leaves in the water. The front wheel slipped out from underneath me and down I went. Wore a hole in my pants and my knee. Sprained my thumb too. I went to urgent care and the next morning my whole hand swelled up. Back to urgent care again. Two shots and two antibiotics were given/sold to me and my knee got wrapped up. I'm almost all healed up now, but my wife is afraid to let me out again.

My three step diet: Eat well, eat less, and move more.

Operative word here is TRY. Yes, we do, but the older you get, the harder it is ...

Congrats on your loss, that's pretty spectacular in just three weeks!

I lost 50lbs last year, and my primary tool was the Sparkpeople website. Lots of tools on there to help you track, recipes, exercise ideas and videos, and it is all FREE. They encourage making slow, permanent changes that you can live with, and it has certainly worked for me. I hope to lose another 50 this year.

And yes, obese people can fit into and paddle kayaks, but it's a lot more fun to do everything when you're fit! I can't believe how much better it feels not to be carry 50 lbs I didn't need around with me. And my changes were all about exercise and portion control. I was already eating pretty healthy, just too much, and not moving enough.

Don't get me started about rally pot-lucks...
