Dobbs Im sorry about the exhaustion and the weight gain. Hopefully its just stress and retained water doing it to you. My family has diabetes also so I have to really watch my weight also. AFM, I am down just shy of 4lbs in 2 weeks. I went from 185.5 to 181.9. It was a little lower yesterday but I kinda binged on chips and some chocolate last night. lol. Baby steps! Ive been sticking to riding my bike Monday-Friday for 1 hour/20 miles/500 calories total burned. Then I basically look like a mad woman power walking in my house to reach 7000 steps. Its working apparently. Now with the time change hopefully I can start walking at night again.
