Boy you sure are a good motivator. Would have been even better if you'd thrown in a couple of "Hallelujah's" with the "Amen's". Started last week at 15 min. with my dog. Need to get running shoes. I'm with you sistah--Hallalujah--Amen!!!!

I'm in. Already taking noon walks at work in a half-assed fashion -- I'm in for 30 minutes a day of moving my fat one, no excuses.


Wow, I am so glad I "stumbled" upon your post today. This is exactly what I needed to hear. I have really been struggling. I'm tired of being fat, but I don't feel motivated to do the work right now. If 20 pounds is gone by next summer, that is good enough for me. I AM IN!


I would love to join this. I can definately increase my walking by 15 min a week!


Thanks Baby J, but give your self a break huh? 5 months pregnant? You get a pass for another 6! Enjoy your new baby soon!

First time over at your site and I have to say that I like all that you said. I think it's truly inspirational and I hope it moves at least 1. For me, these months will be especially hard because I'm at 20 weeks (5 months) preggers right now. So that means extra added pressure during these festive months. Have a happy season. Keep moving.


I'm in! You are so right when you say that you equate exercise and diet. If you are on a diet and you end up eating too much or whatever it seems that automatically that means you aren't going to exercise any more. Well, that's not going to happen anymore. Exercise and diet are no longer tied together. They can be, but that doesn't mean they need to be.

Thanks for your post,


I'm come to much the same conclusion recently. I can't (won't probably would be more accurate) commit to a diet at this point, but I've begun exercising simply for the health benefits, instead of, as you said, in conjunction with whatever food plan is in action that undoubtedly will get tossed in a few weeks or months. I'm exercising, and calling it nothing but exercise. It's a step in the right direction.


I am in! I have actually been doing this since last week when I got back into the exercise game but by one minute...I will up my ante to two minutes today!

You are so going on the thankful list at my blog!


I am there! It is funny, because that is the conclusion that I came to recently too. If exercise is all I can do right now, that is a good thing and hopefully the rest with follow!


Excellent post! It was very inspiring to read. I love this time of year and this has reminded me how much so. I'm with you.

Me me! (Thrusting arm in the air...) I'm back in the saddle with going to Curves after a relapse, and I'm feeling good about it. (Can't say I love exercise like Margaret, but it sure does feel good AFTERWARD, especially after a really yukky day at work).


I have decided that my whole deal has nothing to do with needing to diet and everything to do with facing an addiction. Apple-picking and so on is a much better way to feel good than sitting on the couch stuffing my face. So, hear hear!


I'm not sure about doubling my time every week (going from 12 to 24 minutes, 5 days a week in week four might be too much for me), but I'm game for at least starting out and finding out how far I can go. I think I might modify it to start with 15 minutes a day, 5 days a week and then increase mileage by 10% every week instead, but my intent will still be the same.


It sounds good to me. I love to exercise!
