And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left...Isaiah 30: 21
I guess you can say I am qualified to be called a genuine fanatic!!!..I have walked over 600 miles since July of 2012 ...As of this morning I weigh 121 lbs and have lost 24 lbs in 6 months.. I am wearing a size 8 in clothing now.
The weather has been brutal this month especially... Sometimes the wind chill has been 40 below 0 and we still have ice on the ground with deep snow in places........My husband who joins me on our walks has been very supportive and he has lost 18 lbs himself.
It was so cold out late this afternoon that my cameras battery got stubborn and had a hard time getting a self portrait to take, but this is one of the few that cooperated when I wasn't expecting it:) I didn't have to worry about getting run over by a car as our long driveway was drifted in from wind gusts on top of the hill blowing across the field which made walking a little more difficult on our driveway and on our trail through the woods.
It is important to dress warmly for the cold weather...and I usually wear a snowmobile suit over jeans and warm sweater, insulated vest, long johns, two pairs of warm socks, snowmobile boots, two pairs of gloves, knit hat that ties under a hooded jacket and a cold weather mask...I feel like a polar bear from the North Pole but at least I won't freeze to death:)
