Spring Into Action

OK - NO MORE EXCUSES. The chocolate holidays are behind us, the spring flowers are in bloom (tulips are my favorite) and the weather dictates that hiding under sweats and long sleeves will only cause heat rash!!!! Let's take a long, hard look at our short term AND realistic goals. I have always held to the belief that I have TEN POUNDS to lose. Yes, it's true, I have lost ten pounds ten times but I never looked at the overwhelming prospect of losing 100 pounds. Let's look at a ten pound weight loss with a REALISTIC goal of May 15th. This is a little more than a pound a week. To break that down even further, it's about 4000 calories LESS per week. Divided by seven, that's about 590 calories per day!!!! Take a look at your daily menu. I'm certain that you can find "mindless" calories here and there AND you know I'm all about walking. So whether you live in a warm or cold weather climate, now's the time to SPRING INTO ACTION!!!! Ten pounds doesn't sound like much but on your next trip to the grocery store, pick up a ten pound bag of potatoes and you'll say, "WOW". As always, take it one day at a time and take it easy!!!! See you soon!!!
