We're Walking It Off

Saturday 5 of us went for a 4 mile hike. We try to walk often, however, it doesn't always work out that we can all get together. My daughter-in-law Patty (yellow blouse on the right of the photo) came for a visit. At our Friday night group dinner, we girls decided that we'd take a walk together on Saturday. The weather was PERFECT! I'm a big heat baby and don't like walking when the temperatures are over 70....ok, maybe I'll go all the way to 80! I love these girls! They keep me moving toward my goal....I'm at 45 pounds lost and I'm now able to walk 4 to 5 miles at a time. (Before Weight Watchers, I could barely walk 1/4 mile to the post office). This year I walked in my first 5K...not a big one, but most certainly a beginning. I hope to be able to do a 1/2 Marathon by spring.

Pictured in the photo are: Me on the left - next to me is Wendy - Next to Wendy is Tracy and Next to Tracy is Patty. Carolyn took the photo....so, I cropped her out of one of the photos and she is in the little photo to the right, along with Wendy, who is being very naughty! Which is nothing new! With the exception of Patty, we are all members of Weight Watchers. In addition to accomplishing our goals, it's been a great place to meet great people and a fantastic support group.....we all have one thing in common....we don't look back, we don't look down, we look forward and we are all pulling together to get to our goals.

I didn't mean this to be a big pitch for Weight Watchers, but I'm so excited that we girls are all members and we're sure progressing because of it. I'm 64 and doing things I couldn't do when I was 40.....so, THANK YOU GIRLS, THANK YOU WEIGHT WATCHERS!
