Exhale on Excertion

Ok...Not been doing great on journaling food...having a food plan..
But I have gone to exercise classes M-F. So that is something and I have healthy food in the house  - so even though I am eating more than I should it is alot better food...So BETTER RIGHT?????
Scale still not making me do a happy dance but I can feel my body getting stronger and my clothes getting looser - not loser -

Exercising is still not easy for me and I can feel my extra weight which is depressing - I have stopped fantasizing about following the instructor to her car and force feeding her Little Debbie Honey Buns - hey that's progress. 

In the classes---I receive the advise to exhale on exertions---what do you do when it is ALL EXERTION?Well then it goes to a pant...Exhale -suck in air through like a fish surfacing water..and back to the exhale---I need a paper bag to not pass out!!!

And yet ... I am still in the fight...
Thanks for all the kind words.  They truly lift me up!
