End of week 3

This is the end of week three. I haven't been posting and haven't been exercising - I guess I feel guilty that I haven't been exercising.  Maybe that's why I haven't posted.  I just exercised to Core Rhythms for about 20 - 30 minutes. It's not easy with my knee area feeling stiff. But I did it. I also haven't been exercising because I'm afraid of what's wrong with my body - although I think that once I lose the weight the problems will disappear - but I don't know that for sure.

I have to get serious. Too many women in my family are/were overweight and end up in wheelchairs and using walkers and having multiple physical problems.  I don't want to lose my mobility and I would like to become more active than I am and enjoy life!!!

I have been eating better for the most part. Haven't bought any bread for the house. Buying good snacks (vegy's and hummus and stuff) and haven't bought any ice cream - not even no sugar added klondike bars. That's pretty good. When I had to buy lunch or breakfast out I bought wendy's chili or salads. Made a few bad choices but not many. Don't know if I've been losing weight yet. Dr. Patel asked me not to check the scale until I come back to see him. I haven't done it yet. My appointment with him is in two weeks. So I have two weeks to change get in the habit of exercising and if I do it every day for two weeks then I should lose more weight and maybe inches too.
