    Wow you have been doing great Michelle. I just love your last pic. and congrats on the trophy. I have been reading your whole journal from the start. I was wondering do you consider all of the walking you did as a big part of your success along with sticking to 1300 calories?

    You really do look great.........

    I credit the daily walking with a lot of the weight loss, and the fact that I do not train to run yet found it relatively easy - I consider walking to be training for running too

    Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. After hearing this I plan to start a regular walking plan. I have large thighs and alot of weight to lose. I hope this will help with firming and slimming them up as I lose the weight.

    I didn't do much else for excercize at first except walking; I take my pedometer very seriously (it's the one from Brookstone) and it has been the final word: I don't go to bed before Ive logged at least 5 miles. I added some other excersizes in over time, leading up to more resistance training. The most important thing is diet compliance and daily walking.

    I'm planning on checking into buying a fitbit one or FT4. I have heard a lot of good things about them. My pedometer stop working and wasn't that accurate anyways. I'm starting to get serious with following the eating plan Primal. And now want to do all I can to get the weight off and be healthy. Thats why when I was reading your journal I saw where you added extra walking to help with it. Plus after the first of the yr. I want to add weight lifting.
    thanks for all of your help.

    I was thinking of getting a fitbit, it seems like a step up from what I have been using for the last 3.5 years. My friends uses one of those watches for running but I think the fitbit has more features.

    I hope this links works, but here is some of the stuff I have read about the fitbit.

    Plus I saw on TV a couple of weeks ago were they said the fitbit one was the most accurate of the 6 they tested.

    I was just looking at it on amazon and I love that I can sync all my stuff together and track stairs as well.
    I can see that being very motivating - I just put it on my high priority wish list - I turn 41 in a month and that's top of the list right now

    You will probably get one before I do. Will you let me know which one you buy and what you think of it.
    Thanks
