Posting frequently is really helping me to stay on target and sharing seems to be helping some of you, especially those of you who are emailing me behind the scenes.
Keep up the good work and try not to be discouraged...
remember that this is a lifestyle change not a fad or crash diet.
Baby steps...slow and steady...keep your eye on the ball!
Visualize what your target will look like...if it is walking briskly for an hour work up to it...if it is looking at the scale with a specific number in mind...visualize what that will feel like and take note of what you need to do to get there....stay positive and embrace the healthy change.

There is nothing glamorous about this OOTD
it is all about function and comfort.
I change out of my shoes and sox and opt for ballet flats after my walk,
~ almost 3 pounds lost ~
Several people have mentioned that they are surprised that I would post my weight on the blog...
they thought it would be so embarrassing
Well honestly I AM embarrassed
as I have let myself down
by letting the weight creep up on me
by not showing will power and discipline.
Part of the plan is coming to terms with the problem and taking action.
Now let's move on and look at the garden for a bit...
"Pennisetum alopecuroides moudry"
planted out front in a planter
right where the deer love to graze...
wonder if they will munch this one
fuzzy "bottle brush" flowers
"miscanthus sinesis strictis"
in another planter by the boxwood hedge
close up of the leaves...
spiky fronds with two tones of green
the city crews came by and poured the concrete this morning
you can see the black plastic casing for the clean out that they installed...
I will be adding some more blue fescue grasses on either side of this clean out
and now I need to go and find a pretty pot to sit atop the plastic contraption and find some pretty plants to go in it!
New novel which I am enjoying...
I read Alice Hoffman before and had forgotten what a great writer she is
how she weaves a tale that captures our imagination
she delves into the most peculiar and unusual of topics.
This one is very curious so far...
I am 80 pages into it but I think it is going to be a very good read indeed.
