Earlier this week I posted about how super-wife and I joined Weight Watchers online. Let me be clear I'm the one with the baby-boomer belly as I heard it described on a preview to an upcoming PBS series "Life (Part 2)" which I will write more about very soon.
Knowing that major changes in healthcare are probably coming and knowing that in two years I will be on Medicare, I knew the time had come to make a major and lasting effort to get rid of the belly. I realize that I have been playing with an explosive risk factor that could send me to an ER and make me share my somewhat limited income on prescription co-pays.
Wednesday is our weigh-in morning. This morning I woke up at 4 to go to the bathroom and while up I thought I'd step on the scale, a new Homedics from Bed, Bath and Beyond that we purchased in mid-July. I can move it to anywhere on the floor and the weight will stay the same.
At my first weigh-in I was up .9 of a pound. I went back to bed thinking "Oh crap" I gained weight. I got up around 6 and weighted myself again after going to the washroom and I had lost a little over a pound plus. I'll take that. So far, since July, I've lost 10+ pounds.
We are walking everyday. I will be writing more about this during the week.
