I have always had a love affair with shoes and probably started long about sixth grade when a family friend gave me 30 pair of her gently used shoes in colors like yellow, green, red, purple and I was hooked!
I also have neuropathy in my feet, so shoes are hard to purchase because they may feel great one day and like walking on rocks the next.
I purchased a new pair of Ryka shoes because #1 I needed new shoes, #2 I loved the color. I wore them for an entire day and my feet felt great!
However, yesterday I was busy so I wore my boots and while my boots might have been made for walking, they aren't what you want to walk in for a power walk or walk around the block...unless it is pouring out.
Last night, I was sitting here and it dawned on me. No matter how may pair of shoes I have for walking in my closet, unless I put them on and step outside or on the treadmill, they are not going to help me loose weight and they are not going to make me walk. The only thing that will do that is ME!!
I am overweight, my health is is dire trouble if I do not lose weight and while I hate walking alone and have tried to incorporate people into walking with me, it isn't working. So, I must take it upon myself, pull my butt off my chair and walk on my own.
Anyone know of any really good downloadable free books I can put on my IPOD?
Gotta head out for the day, just remember we can all be thin if we put the effort into it. Today, I will walk!
