I have to give myself credit. I’m still at it. If I have one thing, it’s stick-tuit-ive-ness.
I’m still going once a week for a private session with Cathy the training nazi, and this fall I committed to trying to hit one additional class each week. I managed last week, but last night there was no class, and tonite? Well I was tired, forgot to take my meds and was achy, so I came home and walked thru the woods instead.
Any results? I’ve been doing Weight Watchers for 6 weeks and I’m down 5 pounds. Not much, but all my clothes are loose and I feel good. It’s never been easy for me to lose weight – I tend to lose every other week. And I’m not making excuses, but The Red Sox just won the world series which meant a lot of nervous baseball watching and after all, it is a game of consumption, right? It was hard to sit home watching without munching occassionally.
Weight watchers at least makes me aware of everything I put in my mouth. I understand the ramifications and try to make trade offs. But the fact is that it’s just hard. Especially as you get older. I can’t work out like I used to. I don’t have the time every day to devote to activity. Some days I don’t want to do it.
But I’m still making the attempts. Slow and steady it’s going to come off.
And the Red Sox did just win the World Series! Hot dogs and beers all around!!
