It's Wednesday morning, the time for our Weight Watchers Online weigh in where super-wife and I both step on the scales. When I started this about nine months ago, two words seemed to dominate my thinking-"risk factor."
This morning "Mister Scales" said I had lost .2 of a pound. I'm now at 205.2 with a total loss of a little more than 30 pounds. My goal is to reach 195 and to stay there.
How has this affected my health? I've dumped, at the doctor's suggestion, a low-grade blood pressure pill with a handsome co-pay and my knees don't hurt anymore. I can walk easily and I can go up and downstairs without feeling stiffness and pain.
The secrets to making this work: the desire to do it, my wife's support and a great, easy-to-use program with Weight Watchers Online.
