Rosemary, well done!!

I have put on weight over the winter :shock: :shock: :shock: I have been blaming the weather and have been reluctant to have salads, prefering warm filling foods. However all of my trousers seem to have shrunk :roll: :roll: :roll: So I need to do something fast or I will be buying bigger trousers. :oops: :oops: :oops:

Lorchen,
I am finally on the treadmill every morning walking too - a bum tightening walk at a good pace. I pick fun and interesting things to watch from my computer (hooked up to tv) and have gone from 30 min to between 45 and 50 now. It also helps keep my blood sugars down and boosts my energy for teaching all morning.
Our hallways are also very long, however I don't get out of my classroom much.
Keep up the great work! gosh....almost sounds like a report card....
cheers
Jeanine

Considering I have been stalled for quite a few weeks now, maybe not - but then DH bought me some new jeans at the weekend and they were a size 12 :shock: so perhaps I can still hide behind you after all :P :wink:
This time last year I was in size 18-20....

You are really DOING it Lorchen! I admire your commitment. Sounds like that new little baby is giving you a small mystery to distract you while you work on your weight loss! Good for you on the wonderful success.

Jeanine, at the moment I do relatively little physically. But you should see the length of our school corridors! And I don't get out of breath and wheeze anymore when when running up and down them all day. :)

The lack of physical activity has always been one of my problems. I fell down a whole flight of stairs over 30 years ago. My older son had left a little brown toy car on top of the stairs on a brown carpet. I didn't see it, put one foot on it and went flying. I was carrying my younger son at the time who was about 5 months old. So instead of letting go of Andreas and grab the hand rail, I protected my baby and landed at the bottom of the stairs on a twisted knee joint. They considered a knee replacement, but managed to re-attach torn ligaments and muscles and remove bone fragments. But it has been a problem ever since.

But..... I can manage 2km on a treadmill now - walking, not running.

I have been told that physical activity is very beneficial and increases general well-being, but it's what you eat and drink that is the most important factor when it comes to weight.

And to answer the question about grandchild number two: Kerri is fine now after feeling miserably sick day and night in the beginning. She had another scan and everything is fine. But this little tinker kept his/her legs firmly crossed, so we do not know if Oma will have to go shopping for a train set or a doll. The official due date is the 20th of August.
