I was reading through week 2 of the 12 day plan today at lunch and it has really inspired me to start walking more. So I've purchased a fitbit and I'm going to gradually increase my steps over the next weeks. For those who haven't read any of my posts I started this plan 3 weeks ago. I'm really heavy. I need to lose more than half my current body weight so you can imagine that I get out of breathe walking, I get pains in my legs when I walk too far but I've done it before and I know that this is just temporary. It won't improve if I just sit and don't get active. I know that by putting the effort in then over time I will feel better and those aches will go. Exercising won't make me feel any worse that's for sure, so in the words of the good Dr (Pepper) what's the worse that could happen. Now I know that I'm just reading week 2 but I wanted to get to grips with the healthy eating principles attached to week 1 before moving on. I'm now up to 30g + of fibre each day. I'm totally inspired and motivated by all your stories. I've had an ok start with 8 pounds lost in those 3 weeks. My eating couldn't be better. I've cut out all the crisps, biscuits and chocolate completely and I'm enjoying my meals. I have a desk job so I'm not active through the day but today I went a 30 minute walk at lunch time. I feel happy with myself for doing that. I walk 20 minutes to the train in the morning then 20 minutes home at night. I'm aiming for a walk in the evening starting tonight.
