I am walking today. Recalling stories only goes so far. Telling about people who have made great strides to become healthy, where our efforts have been some inspiration, is a good thing. Good inspiration for me. Needing to stay in one place for months to care for the dog has mixed blessings. Here I have a place with a desk and the time to write more than a blog post. ( topic for another day) Unfortunately, I am eating less but my body is storing it away. A lifetime of hard work can not be replaced by less activity with hope to keep loosing weight . Sitting around while Nice (the dog) heals has my waistline expanding. This is not acceptable to me. I am the only one who can stop this trend. Less talking and writing, more walking.
