A Good Day

Today is a good day for me. I have bee trying for a couple years to loose some weight. I tried diet pills, slim fast, exercise and everything I could think of. Nothing worked. If anything it seemed I gained weight.

With the high price of gas and groceries I decided I was going to plant a garden. My husband works too much to have time to help with it, so I knew this project was going to be on my own. I tilled the ground, raked, hoed and tilled it again. I planted the plants and seed. I then decided I wanted to plant more vegetables but I didn’t have enough room in the spot. I started over again in another are. Tilled, ranked, hoed and planted. Then once a week I till between the rows and plants to keep the weeds out and hoe where the tiller will not fit.

It has been a lot of work but it has also been fun watching my hard work grow. I have started noticing my clothes are bigger on me then they were before so today I stepped on the scales and I have lost 20 lbs. 20 more and I will be down to my ideal weight.

Yes I am thrilled. I was not even trying to loose weight I was just looking for a way to save some money and have great tasting fresh food. Maybe I’ll use my yard for a garden to keep in shape LOL
