Wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living...Psalms 56: 13

I thought this was a a good reason to celebrate.

My husband and I went on a power walking program starting earlier in July and we are doing 3 miles a day total now morning and early evening through the trail in our woods...My husband went from 173 to 155 lbs and lost 18 lbs. I have lost 16 lbs and went from 145 lbs to 129 lbs..

I could not do it without the positive support of my husband. It helps to have a walking partner who believes in what we are doing and who is dedicated to eating healthier foods as well in our diet. It is very important at our age to stay healthy.

November 2013 update: We are now walking 4 miles a day...My husband maintains his weight
between 145 to 150 lbs and I have been staying at 108 lbs which is where I feel best at....

    awesome shot, Andrea! i don't know how you got a shot of yourselves like this without looking like you're rushing back to your spot after you set the timer.

    Thank you everyone...Leslie it wasn't easy but I got in practice with running in place in 10 seconds time limit when I did my photo diary series for a year...Strangely if I allow myself
    anymore time than 10 seconds it looks staged:)
