Weight Watchers Works, No Question…but
Well, I’ve gotten back on weight watchers again, kind of. Actually, my wife signed up on line and I use the plan–or I’m supposed to be using it. Trouble I’m having is, I’m used to having someone else make my meals or at least do the planning of them. But this last year I’ve done quite a bit of batching it because my bride works full time so I’m responsible for the most part for making my meals and I really am terrible at it. Consequently, I’m not really losing weight again as I’d like to. No excuses. I just need to exert more self discipline. Plus, where we live now there are almost no areas where one can walk/jog safely. Just one a mile or so away along a river. Well, I should take advantage of that more but I either have to drive there (price of gas going up) or walk and walking is nerve racking because it’s along a major 5 lane highway with a speed limit of 45 miles an hour which almost no one obeys. Pedestrians get hit and injured or killed in this area almost daily. From time to time I walk through our subdivision but it’s dangerous as well because of the lack of sidewalks. People don’t watch for pedestrians here and move over for them. Since we’ve moved here almost a year ago (10 months) I’ve narrowly missed being hit several times. One driver cut a corner off as I approached that same corner. I was walking slowly and he very nearly clipped me with his mirror. I ducked aside just in the nick of time. ‘Course he was courteous enough to wave one finger at me as he continued on down the street.
Just yesterday I was walking through a busy parking lot eating a candy bar (well, this is about weight loss) and nearly got hit by a car backing out of a space. I stopped and leaped back just in time. The driver merely acknowledged my presence with a wave of his hand. Nice. All of that just to describe how hard it is around here to get regular frequent exercise. But one has to keep trying.
‘Til next time.
