It's My Pedometer!

Replacement pedometer showed up in the mail today and I now feel a rekindled sense of committment. I am starting to feel that same determination I felt on January 1 over again.

I think mindless eating is something that probably 90% of us weight loss bloggers have in common. I am convinced that only eating when I am actually hungry was the #1 thing that helped me lose so much weight betwen Jan-Apr. Since then, I have drifted back toward more "eating just because" and as a result I haven't lost any weight since April. I've even gained some back. #2 key to success was exercise. Not ridiculous amounts of it, but a very manageable committment to at least 15-30 minutes on the Wii Fit each day and a 10,000 steps a day. I've also gotten away from that. And #3 is the blog. I've pretty much been a no-show for the past few months and it feels good to be talking to my buds on here again. Just reading a few of your posts again has helped me refocus.

Wife just finished making a big pot o' great chili. Wish me the best in eating just one reasonable sized bowl! That is plenty enough to fill me up, but I will no doubt want more.

Good night y'all!

A Man Without a Pedometer

Last weekend I found out that pedometers don't work in water. I forgot I was wearing my pedometer and jumped in a pool. Needless to say it doesn't work anymore, even after attempts to revive in by burying it in rice, as was suggested to me. It feels so weird walking around without it, funny how we can get attached to something like that, the way a kid does with a favorite blanket.

Can't wait til the new one shows up in the mail!
