    Great job! I'm trying to watch what I eat/take in 1200 calories a day (which, if you're eating healthy, is actually plenty). I don't get much/any exercise, but I did lose 10 lbs this week--which, like you said, are the easy lbs. BUT, I'm going to keep on, keepin' on & get there eventually!

    Managed to budget in a jumbo jack <Free jumbo jack when the Cards get a sack!> today (only 490 cals) and that was nice. Just got an iced tea to drink (you have to buy a large drink).

    When I decided to start this journey I talked to my doctor and he told me to walk 3 miles a day for 2 weeks and check back with him. So today I called him and said "Doc, I'm 42 miles from home. What do I do now"? But seriously folks, I walked 3 miles each day, watched what I ate and lost 3 pounds last week. So 10 down and 65 to go. I will check back year after the holidays.

    Nice work man, keep it up!

    I think you've hit on 2 of the most important ideas for successful weight loss, consistency and having a meaningful goal. You will find there are many people in the same boat when you participate in Pats Run. It's a great event for all levels. And to help remain consistent, you might want to try a training app like Strava. You can track your walks and eventually your runs. You can see the miles pile up and your times decreasing. You can even set new PRs as you get faster if your routes contain any segments, or you can create your own.

    I'll throw in my 2 cents about diet. Don't eat anything with more than 5 ingredients. That should keep your gut healthy, which affects everything else.
