I forgot to say, great job, Pete! :D!

Jeri, yes they do! He has studded tires for winter. He actually swaps the entire wheel out. He hates the back and forth weather we have at this time of year, because he really needs the studs on snow, but riding with normal tires is much easier if there roads are clear.

Interesting! I sometimes wish we lived where there were 4 distinct seasons and a little snow once in a while. Both my boys were season-deprived. lol My oldest son who will be 26 soon just saw snow for the first time a couple of years ago. My little guy still feels ripped off whenever he sees the storms up north on the news.

Then we have days like yesterday and the day before where I spent a good amount of time outside pulling weeds and discovering I have a wisteria vine (with one sad flower) I never knew about. The weather was perfect and made me thankful to be right where I am.

In getting back on topic, I need some encouragement to put down the extracurricular snacks. My jeans are getting tight and I can't afford new ones. Staying the same size is more of a budget thing for me than anything else.

I got my pedometer and was amazed to see that, after calibrating it and clipping it on at noon, I still managed to walk .9 mi. by the end of the day. Mainly due to the fact that I forgot my list when I went to the grocery store and back tracked a few times.

I really was shocked to think I walked that much in an average afternoon, tho.

Give me some ideas for snacks that are less fattening than those Dove chocolates I keep telling myself "are just fine due to the antioxidant properties of dark chocolate." and so I eat too many.

I don't know if it's the hand to mouth replacement for the oral-ness of smoking, or if it's a side effect of this medication that everything tastes so good, but I need to get a grip before it gets away from me.

Well its not feeling like spring this morning, I had to turn the heat on :(

Anyway I'm, down 10lbs myself, doesn't feel like it but the scale says so.  Guess when you got a bunch to get rid of 10 really isn't that much :-(

Pick up a 10 lb bag of potatoes. Then see just how much that is. Hold it, move it from hand to hand while holding at arm's length. Then visualize that sack of potatoes on your hips or stomach.

YES! 10 pounds is a HUGE amount of weight! And if you have lost that much you should be doing this --> :D! not this -->  :-(

Consider it phase 1 if you plan on losing more. Put a check mark in a box, cross it off a list, do something to say "there! I did that! now onto the next phase."

Here you go:

I just dropped 26 pounds. 262 lbs that is my weight as of this morning. 40 more to go and I'd be real happy but I'll settle for another 20.    :h0035

Here's your attaboy, Sharky:

That's nice of you Jeri.

Sharky, you should print those out and put them up on the fridge.

Awww, thanks Jeri - your the best :heartB

The reason for the  :-( is I can't see where it came off at, not like my clothing is fitting better or anything.  I was very excited to see 10lbs gone but disappointed I can't physically see a difference.  Used to be 10lbs gone and I was a new woman, that's just not the case anymore!

I even changed the batteries in the scale in case that was the problem and I didn't really drop 10 :-[

Do they make snow tires for bicycles? Just curious.

Great work, Sharky!!

Yes they do. I used to mountain bike in the snow.

And Thanks   :h0035

I'm not moving much....  unless you count my hooking,  but I've managed to lose 7 lbs in the last couple of weeks.

It's a drop in the bucket....  but a start.

Danielle,  if you can't see your 10lb loss I'm going to need to lose 50 before I see it!!   :o 

I'm way older!!    :(
