Let's focus on the positive! What is a healthy action - food, exercise, attitude or anything at all - that you took today?

I walked to the store 3 blocks away instead of driving...Who is next?

I conquered a devastating craving for crappy food!

I expresssed sincere gratitude to the sibling of one of my high school teachers. Almost cried, which was embarassing, and I'm not a touchy-feely person so the whole exchange was really weird. But I wanted her to know what she meant to me, even if I felt silly.

I exercised on my elliptical first thing this morning!

I walked for 90 minutes in the sunshine while waiting for a new windshield being installed on my car. Couldn't bear to sit in the waiting area and watch TV.

Yeah for walking - boo for a new windshield. Did you have a crack in it? We had to replace my husbands...expensive!

I just returned from a 45 minute session at the fitness center. I go there three times a week. I'm 87.

That's great. I am 227lbs at 5'10! I need too lose this weight. I have lost 2lbs just in two days. Hopefully by the end of this month, I should be at 215lbs. I want to get down to 190-195 by the summer.

This was yesterday - I walked up the stairs to the fourth floor of my job instead of taking the elevator.

Evidently my legs are in worse shape than I thought!!

Congrats kmmcphail - What a great perk to have through your employer!

Have you had your first weigh-in yet?

sableq52 - my legs were sore for days after I took the stairs up and down 6 flights helping a friend move (I was too impatient to wait for the elevator) I need to find more stairs in my life, apparently...
