Almost 30 Pounds Lost!

I'm elated! I went on the scale this morning after not weighing myself for 2 weeks and I lost 4 pounds! I am 1 pound away from the big 30 lost! Then it's only 50 more to go! I was shocked. I had to weigh myself 3 times to make sure the scale was correct.

I have been taking 1+ hour walks every day, except Sundays, with Angel-Scar over the phone as she walks. We motivate each other. Clearly it's working.

I do admit I was a little worried about us chatting on the phone while walking at first. Given I am legally blind and use a white cane, I need my hearing to be able to deduce what's around me at all times, but I can still hear okay with the ear buds in. I always state that I need quiet to be able to concentrate at street crossings and she respects that. If I need to do something on Pokémon Go then I always step off the sidewalk onto the grass or move to a safe area as to not get in the way of anyone or anything. I play responsibly. Others should as well! I have encountered the odd person that doesn't and it's annoying and sometimes even frightening to see. Now, back to the weight-loss.

I have been eating reasonable portions of food. Lots of white meat, fruit, vegetables, and fiber. Along with being more strict with my sleep-wake schedule every day except Sundays. I go to bed anywhere from 9-11 PM and get up anywhere from 7-9 AM. Walks are always 10 AM to whenever we finish. I play Pokémon Go while I walk and that motivates me to go farther to get more Poke-Stops and conquer Gyms. I find the exercise, socializing, and interactivity to be most enjoyable!

I do worry about what I will do come Winter. I would like to join a gym, but I can't see myself being able to afford a gym along with having enough money for Christmas presents. I will need to improvise somehow. I don't want to lose this momentum.
