A few small victories

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

I'm happy to report that while I'm still in not doing as well as I'd like, I can chalk up two small accomplishments.

1) In response to a challenge on the 30-Somethings with 100+ to Lose team, I have not had ice cream (I include ice milk, frozen yogurt, sherbert and sorbet in this catagory) since June 1. This is a really big deal for me - ice cream is my comfort food of choice. I even passed on the ice cream cake brought in for a co-worker's birthday - and I was serving it! My only frozen indulgence has been water ice, and I've only had that a few times.

2) I've walked 2 miles most every day for the past two weeks. I've walked in the rain, in oppressive heat and humidity, as dawn was barely breaking over the horizon, as the sun was setting. Not far, not fast, but doing it on a regular basis.

One thing at a time, I guess.

    That's fantastic emoticon Ice cream is my comfort food too. If I'm going to go over in calories and fat, it's always because I overate icecream.

    Congrats on all your walking too....great great great!!

    I've been sailing in the same ice cream filled boat for many years, and it's a vice I have finally been able to let go of. Frozen fruit bars are my new standard, and even those are few and far between. Perfect practice will eventually make perfect, and resisting that ice cream cake is HUGE!

    I think you are doing a great job getting 2 miles in on your walks - keep up the great work! I am now walking daily, but so far I haven't gone much over a mile and a half. My knees are riddled with osteoarthritis, but I've gotta push through. As someone that also has 100+ lbs to lose, I feel your pain. Keep the faith, and don't discount your accomplishments! You're doing emoticon

    Way to go Carren! That so awesome! I too love ice cream...I could have it morning, noon and night!!

    And congrats on all the walking! I haven't been so dedicated to my walking/running! Its hard with a 6 year old and no one to watch her! But I get out when I can...But you are going out no matter what and thats what really counts!! Do you find yourself feeling so much better and having more energy??

    Keep trucking and you'll get there...slow and steady wins the race!
