Yay for you going for a walk My doc said walking and or jogging etc are the best kinds of exercise as it requires you to use your whole body, not just part of it like with an exercise machine lol. My exercise starts tomorrow with walking to/from the bus to work and then at least 20 - 30 mins on my exercise bike. I may even jump on my bike tonight and see how i go

So today was the first day of my 'new me' campaign. I admittedly cheated once by eating a few chocolate chip cookies, but otherwise I was pretty pleased with myself.
Tomorrow will be the real tester when I get home from work exhausted and walking is the last thing I feel like doing. MUST... STICK....TO....THE...PLAN...

Holy cow, I did a pump class yesterday and today my body has started a revolt against me!

I'm in so much pain, and I swear my weights weighed less then my handbag does!

I fear I have left my run a little late given we fly out in less than 3 weeks. So my plan is just to get a little fitter so the long days in disneyland don't absolutely slay me. So my grand plan is to go for a walk after work every day for the next three weeks, am sure the dog will appreciate it!

Wow. You are both superwomen for doing pump followed by step. Eek!

Just made my first stuff up at work and broke out in hives. Sigh. Hoping this day gets better

I just started the Couch 2 5K again tonight. Not sure if my hip is ready for it or not. Will see if I can walk tomorrow...

So it's 3 days into my 'no more excuses' regime and I'm feeling really good about myself.
I've gone for about an hour long walk each day after work instead of blobbing on the couch with snacks and I've been eating fairly balanced meals. It's still early days, but I'm already feeling like my energy levels are returning and my stress levels are lowering (extremely intense time at work at present).

Thank you to Alicia and other posters on this thread for inspiring me to get moving. :-)

Now I just have to go

wow aussie travellers, $15 for the month is super cheap

right now i am just walking and eating my balanced meals. normally (in my pre-diagnosis lifestyle) we would get pizza for dinner on 'cheaper tuesdays' and i would eat that for dinner.

tonight, we had fish. admittedly, i made them into burgers, but still within my calorie limit. my life is ruled by calories at the moment and that is a good thing. being honest with myself about how much i am eating and keeping a record is a good thing. i am measuring myself (in cms, eek) each week to record any changes, as this is the way i am measuring success..no binges, daily walks and weekly measurements. my doc will do monthly weigh ins as well.

i have had so many temptations to eat poorly or to fall back into my old habits yet, and i certainly have a long, long road ahead of me, but i think i can do it.

I have a super long road ahead of me as well. Let's believe we can do it together. :-)
