WeightWatchers Update


I decided to quit going to the Weightwatchers meetings and unsubscribe from the online program, completely for monetary reasons, not because of any fault with the program. In fact, I still use the program including the scales, the points calculator, the books and the points for each food I eat. The good news is, I not only reached my 10% goal of 214 pounds, I reached my next goal of 200 pounds and as of this writing, I am just slightly under 200. My next goal, long-term anyway, is to reach 185 which also happens to be my weight at the time my wife and I got married 24 years ago!

I’m still working out at least three days a week, walking. Although now that the foul Pacific Northwest weather is here, I’m going back to the gym three days a week where I use the treadmill to walk and jog (I’m up to jogging more than a mile without stopping!). Some days I start out with half an hour on the exercycle, then an hour or two on the treadmill, then crunches on the machine and a couple other machine exercises I don’t know the name of but they work the muscles of the small of my back and my chest muscles as well as the arms. That way I work out my core muscle groups as well as the arms and legs.

I got a little lax about recording my food but I’m putting the pressure on to get back on track with it. I usually wind up eating first, then writing what I ate down. But weight loss only happens for me if I plan my menu first, then stick to it.

On to 185 (well, actually, 195 for now)!
