Happy New Year

This morning I weighed in at 155.2 lb, which is 6 pounds less than January 1st 2008. I took my measurements, hoping for more, but finding only half an inch gone from my hips and apparently nothing from anywhere else. What am I hoping for from 6 pounds? :)

I am starting out a new year with renewed determination not to gain weight and hope that I might lose those bothersome additional 13 pounds (as of today).

From the past year I have learned that:

a) Slow and steady really does win the race in the end.
b) Doing something like this in community is very helpful as well as fun.
c) I need to commit to regular exercise as part of my life.

Hey, I would love to hear from the other Slide Stoppers and regroup for a fresh attack on the fat!

Libby! It's so good to have a buddy arrive on the scene. I know, exercise is needed. I have to get moving! Today I went shopping and did a fair bit of walking but I know that's stretching it! :) I've been eating more vegetables today and stocked the fridge with more!
