Patriotic way!

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!
