I have gotten my eating under control after two years. I practiced eating less and adding healthier foods but the weight still didn't come off fast enough. It is a must that I exercise at least a few times per week. I found a walking trail that is about 5 miles and it nearly made me drop to my knees. I kept saying I will walk a little more because its only 2.7 miles but come to find out it was 5 miles. Boy was I tired but feeling invigorating. I think I should have started 10 and worked up to it because it took me a hour to do it.
