The seven pound loss is unexpected but welcome. I'm the lowest weight I've been in a decade or so. I have to say that the pool exercise and the additional activity, mostly light housekeeping, I've been doing has really paid off. I'm also trying to keep my calories to between 2200 - 2400 calories a day with mixed success.
The light housekeeping usually involves just one or two minutes of me standing on my feet and doing things like dusting, putting something away, or swiping over a bathroom surface. It's not much, but it seems to be contributing to the loss.
FlyLady says you can do anything for 15 minutes. Well, no, I can't. But I can do a minute or two and I've really been pushing myself to do so.
