Two years ago the numbers on the scale were two pounds short of kissing 250 pounds. That would probably be an okay weight if I was six foot eight, but I'm actually five foot ten and I'm a 63-year-old baby boomer knows that a serious flirtation with a risk factor can either change or end your life.
About a year ago I got serious with Weight Watchers Online. My wife who really didn't need to lose more than a couple of pounds embraced my effort and made it hers. We eat like real people, but we count everything and we eat pretty healthy and it's been working.
This morning I was 202.2. My most immediate goal is to get under 200 and manage that. Having done the weight loss thing before I know that I can ease off the effort after a year and gain everything back plus more.
How long is it going to take to get to 199.9? I don't know, but I'll report back.
