I used to buckle like a belt. Now I buckle like a prickly, passive-aggressive Chinese Water Torture kind of belt that makes the wearer uncomfortable enough to stop whatever prompted the buckling in the first place. Not a brilliant end-all result, of course, but better than before. Definitely getting stronger here!

How I did it: Slowly. Every time we went out, I tried to do one more move--something just slightly different from my comfort zone. Over time (maybe a dozen outings in 6 months), I was just able to move without watching everyone around me. It was a great feeling! Read how I did it…
This marks two weeks of walking 1 1/2 miles every night (with hubby, baby, and two puppies)!
Well, this is a bit late now, but I finished my degree in December. It sucked, it was a lot of work, and it made me want to bash my head against more than one wall, but overall, it was a good experience. It’s easy to say that now, of course, from this end of things; at the time, it seemed impossible that I would ever get every form turned in on time, every signature in place. After all, everyone knows it’s not the writing or the coursework that kills you, it’s the forms and procedures required by the department and the school that makes you want to commit murder.
