3 miles

I had decided a day or two ago that I really needed to kick things into high gear. The first 20 lbs was lost so slowly it was hardly noticed. I started this journey before Thanksgiving. Through the holidays my weight went up and down like a yo yo.
I have a birthday coming up soon and I want to be close to having another 20 lbs gone before I hit 31. So to get things rolling, I'm giving up sugar, bread, pasta, and potatoes for a month. And if the weather* stays decent I am going to walk a mile or two or three most days of the week.
Yesterday I ate food so good I didn't even miss the bread or fries.
I got up early today, got dressed, shoes on, got the dog and walked. I did the first mile in about 25 minutes. I dropped the dog off back at home, he was worn out after one mile. 20 minutes each for the 2nd and 3rd mile. Now I'm worn out, but it feels good.

*It snowed here yesterday. It pretty much melted right away. but still SNOW!
