Have you ever thought of losing weight as patriotic? After listening to a news report yesterday I did. The report said that the United States is approaching a 42% obesity rate. Now, that is really unhealthy as a country.
So, I decided that each of us who are losing weight by whatever means are doing our country a service. Yeah for us!
This is my sixth week on Weight Watchers and I have lost a total of 7.6 pounds. Still a long way to go, but I am on the right path. Thinking about what I put in my mouth and writing down each spoonful is a real help. The weekly meetings are a source of motivation. My daily walking and Silver Sneakers is working to make me stronger.
So…Hip, Hip, Hooray for all you dieters out there! Stand a little straighter. Give yourself a silent salute. Let’s make it the American way!
