I passed my step goal! I increased my minutes, miles, water and days of exercise.  Not by much, but I felt good all week and it's moving in the right direction.

***thoughts***
Week 2 started strong with two 10k step days in a row then over 8k on Wednesday. After Wednesday, however, I started to slow down a lot. I had a couple of days with very little water and exercise. Overall the week wasn't too bad.

My calories continue to be between 1200-1500 a day and with an average calorie burn of almost 2000 I don't understand why I can't lose any weight. I wasn't expecting quick loss, but I thought that by mid-year I would be down at least 10-15 pounds.

I'm starting to feel discouraged and there are days that I think it's just not worth all the effort. But today is not one of those days.... we were up at 5am and out the door for our walk!

I'll just keep going. Even if I never lose any weight, at least I know I'm more active and making better choices than I was a couple years ago.
