Let me share a story about a great friend.
Most of you know of my weight loss journey, although I do wish I had kept a closer journal story...but moving on....
I have an exercise bike (yard sale $20) and i have ridden it faithful for 20 minutes 5 or 6 times a week.
A few weeks ago, I announced my exercise bike had rolled over to 100,000.00 miles, and riding was getting harder and harder to make my self do.
My good friend (you know, the $100 bj guy) calls me on saturday morning, as we talk most days on the phone. He has been involved in trying to get healthier too.
He asked if I had rode my bike this week, and i admitted that I had not...
"get on it right now," he said, "Ride it while we are talking"
A little hemming and hawing on my part, but i mounted the beast, and began to pedal...we chatted along, he asked, "are you on your bike?''
I then realized that the only reason he had called was to be supportive and to talk to me,so i wouldnt notice that I was also exercising...
Friends like that don't come along everyday....maybe next bj, I will give him a small break on the price maybe $80
oh, and I am about 1.5 lbs from the goal my doctor set for me, (although we plan to set another, about 20 lbs lighter, we didnt want me to feel overwhelmed..) 54 lbs...gone!
And best of all, i really really think this is an eating plan that i can deal with forever....thanks again ynot!
