MOTIVATION...shed pounds for dollars
Put the money where the mouth is...
There are quite a few websites, blogs, etc where people are losing weight
for charity. Some gather a group and then each person goes out and
gets pledges...a dollar (or change)amount for ounces or pounds lost. It's
kind of like a walk-a-thon or "spell-a-thon" that kids do at school.
We might find it hard to lose weight just for ourselves. But, if it's
...for a greater cause,
then, it might stir more motivation. Another thing... is that there would
be a definite date to start, and a definite goal date. We'd have to be
accountable to a "scale" to get the $$ for the charity. HERE is a link
to some simple steps and ideas for Charity/weightloss motivation.
Speaking of Charity,
...this isn't for weightloss...but, it is
... for a GOOD CAUSE.

Treadmill - 6 days (5 days-2 miles or more, 1-day @3miles). I've found (at least
according to the treadmill info) that longer time burns more calories than
doing the same distance faster. Incline...even if I go slow...is better than
same distance with no incline. I've noticed a difference in my pants fit
since I started the incline 4 weeks ago.
Food - doing much better with water, eating more veggies, cutting down portions
